I have a simple test that allows me to sift through the volumes of data flowing into my mind all day. We must in our world today or we’ll be overwhelmed.
This RayQuote expresses that test. Before we get in another pointless online debate or lose our serenity because someone cut us off in traffic. Try this simple test to reason your way out of an overreaction that steals your energy.
Will this event, these words, this argument matter in five years? Will it be forgotten in five minutes except for the toll it takes on your day?
WILL it matter in five years? If so, by all means, make your stand. If not save yourself the angst, stay in your cool, and move on with your day unencumbered by it
Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you are awesome!
I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment.
I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company.
I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams.
