Arising from my recent post on my conflict with my superior in my current workplace, I came to learn of the power of Zen.
It is not the shit life which throws at me. I have a choice how to react to the circumstance. I am adamant that the best approach to deal with such circumstance is to adopt the power of Zen. Keep cool and take things lightly. Of course, talk is cheap and action matters. I resolve to put the talk into practice on a daily basis.
It is all up to me to be constantly mindful of my reactions to the negative people and stimuli.
Instead of letting the world define me, I will define my own world. Life is too short to let myself be upset by someone having a bad day or an abusive boss. I will not let the world drag me to a level beneath me. I will pull myself to an elevated level and focus on things which I have control on. I do not have to go out of way to annoy my boss. I will tell myself that it is work afterall and I will follow the instruction of the boss as well as the instruction does not go against my conscience and law.
In life, it does not matter what happens to me or where I came from. It matters what I do with what happens and what I have been given. The worst case scenario is that I quit the rat race as I know I have a huge buffer as my back-up in times of employment. I also have options to find alternative employments while having my current employment now.
