my business is me

My Business is Me

How other people behave is their business, not mine.

My business is my own behavior, my own reactions and my own belief system.

Now if I am in a position of authority I certainly have a responsibility to model acceptable behavior, set standards that are fair and just (as in parenting) and the ability to offer reward or impose penalty.

Nevertheless, there’s an old proverb that says you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make them drink.

At the end of the day what someone else does and someone else thinks and what someone else believes is absolutely and completely up to them, and part of the whole free will system that we enjoy here on planet Earth.

Yet how many people waste countless precious hours being upset about what someone else has done?  Bottom line, they did it.  Now what are you going to do about it?

How many people let other people’s beliefs occupy their minds and hearts in an endless cycle of frustration and anger or fear  Well, they believe it.  You have choices, but anger and frustration and fear are hardly going to do anything constructive to change their minds.

Your only real, constructive option is to look at yourself.  You are in charge of how you perceive it, receive it and act on it.

You have two choices everyday.  You can behave in a positive manner or a negative manner in regard to every single situation that comes to you.

Just a little friendly reminder:  One of those choices will put you on the road to blessings and happiness and one won’t.

Many blessings,
Elaine
