In life, few bad tempered people succeed. Yes, they have that fire that is required to succeed but that fire is usually placed on the wrong focuses, thus, leading them to go running in circles.
Bad temper is a sign of poor control. Bad tempered people allow their circumstances to control their emotions. Successful people are always in control. They are always in control of their emotions, their time, their wealth, their actions, and their destiny.
Bad tempered people get offended with everything. They solve the problems they encounter but with an unnecessary abundance of energy. They expend a hundred levels of energy to solve problems that may require only twenty. Over time, the most probable outcome will be only an increase in stress, frustrations and demoralization.
If you’re a bad tempered person, fret not. The next time you encounter an antagonizing situation, quickly remind yourself to practice control.
Strength doesn’t only refer to the physical strength we exert when we are carrying or moving things. Strength can also be referring to mental strength and mental strength is the kind of strength that most people tend to forget, since it is an invisible force. But it is those who have high levels of mental strength that become massively successful in life.
