Secrets of Success

Handling Stress...




Someone once told me to "handle every stressful situation like a dog...pee on it (metaphorically speaking, of course emoticon ) and walk away". This is similar to not stressing the small stuff. If it's not life-threatening or life-altering, don't let it get you down. Learn from it; build from it; and / or walk away.
