Grace under fire

You might have heard of it before. Those people who have that magical ability to remain calm when the pressure cranks up.

It comes down to two things. Accountability and resignation to the thing at hand.

Accountability that no matter what happens you both had a hand in bringing that outcome to pass and also it is only you who can control your reaction to that outcome.

Resignation to the fact that you won’t always win. Sometimes it is a difficult situation or a full-scale meltdown. Either way, understanding that these things happen and being accountable for your role and response will help you respond with class and effectiveness in the toughest things.
