Have you ever heard the phrase, “Don’t let them see you sweat”?
Even if you are panicking on the inside during a stressful situation, try to keep cool on the outside. Remaining calm rather than falling apart or flying off the handle will make you appear more emotionally intelligent and balanced.
There are certainly people in your life with whom you can share your worries and anxiety, but in most situations that are stressful, it’s better to take a deep breath and try to remain calm.
This allows you to have a clear head to make the best decisions without agitating emotions clouding your judgment.
Once upon the time there was an old farmer who had worked his crops for many years. One day his horse ran away. Upon hearing the news, his neighbours came to visit. “Such bad luck,” they said sympathetically.
“Maybe,” the farmer replied.
The next morning the horse returned, bringing with it three other wild horses. “How wonderful,” the neighbours exclaimed.
“Maybe,” replied the old man.
The following day, his son tried to ride one of the untamed horses, was thrown, and broke his leg. The neighbours again came to offer their sympathy on his misfortune.
“Maybe,” answered the farmer.
The day after, military officials came to the village to draft young men into the army. Seeing that the son’s leg was broken, they passed him by. The neighbours congratulated the farmer on how well things had turned out.
“Maybe,” said the farmer.
