Scroll Six: I’ll Be The Master Of My Emotions

“How do I master my emotions so that each day I will be productive? For unless my mood is right the day will be a failure”

Excellence is not perfection.
Excellence is the pursuit of perfection.

In the pursuit of excellence, you will stumble (sometimes often). Not every day will be perfect.

Make a decision every day to take control of your emotions. Daily preparation, planning, and learning something new will help you prepare your emotions for the day.
