A successful woman was asked to share her secret to success. She smiled and said ” I started succeeding when I started leaving fights for small fighters. I stopped fighting those who gossipped about me… And I stopped fighting with my in-laws. Then stopped fighting for attention and stopped fighting to meet the public expectation of me. After that, I stopped fighting for my rights with stupid people. Finally, I started fighting for my vision, my dreams, my ideas and my destiny. The day I gave up on small fights is the day I started becoming successful.”
Choosing your battle is not a cowardly move. Most often, the battles in front of you are not worth fighting for.
Remember, you only have so much emotional energy each day. So, don’t fight the battles that don’t matter.
Pick and choose your battle wisely. Giving someone more attention than they deserve will only fuel their flame and suck the life out of you.
Furthermore, you need to be patient. Think before you act or speak. Being silent doesn’t mean that your opponent is always right. It only means that he is not worth your time.
Instead, focus your thoughts on the things that really matter in your life rather than sour graping.
The reality is when you try to reason out with someone who is close-minded it will never end. And, I’m sure that it will escalate to something outrageous. You will end up the bully at the end because the person that you fought with has the charm to turn the table on you.
Be selective in your battles, sometimes peace is better than you being right. Inner peace is what gives sound sleep at night. Don’t take for granted the inner peace that you should possess.
Moreover, Life will be easier once you learn how to pick your battles. Life will be simpler and complexities will be abolished.
No one has the right to disturb your inner peace. So, don’t ever let them feel that you are threatened by them. If you know the truth, then you’ll have inner peace
Choose Your Battle
Know when to compromise and to stand firm. Pick your battles wisely. Don’t dwell on the past but learn from your mistakes. Plan for the future but lie a day at a time.
Ignore those people who only want to fight for the things that are not important. They pour out all of their energy to smaller things. They might be on a crisis.
In addition, those smaller projections of unnecessary are their only way to escape. Find the beauty in a situation and learn to walk away.
Don’t let something that doesn’t matter cause you to lose something that does. Mostly, we are focused on smaller things that we tend to ignore the blessing in front of us.
Most of the marriage failed not because of their own problem. They fell out of love thinking about the struggle of others and was fully secure about the relationship.
They hurt each other at the end because they are so secure that they don’t know the difference between hurtful words and compassion.
