Success is a choice. When we focus on the outcome of success, rather than the fear of failure, we choose to succeed by our actions.

Hidden Treasures - Day Fourteen

The greatest strength we can show, is our strength to not continue to engage in a heated conversation when emotions are high. There is rarely a time when the conversation is productive in finding resolution. When emotions are high, the prime objective by the parties involved, is to prove their point is right, and yours is wrong. Situations like these can continue to escalate from vocal to physical. 

The strength to walk away, can often be met with increased hostility because you are no longer giving them a platform to continue their heated dialogue. In some cases, this can be a cause to condone personal poor choices to escalate the disagreement.

In these situations, the question to ask ourselves is the value in the relationship, to continue engaging in dialogue at a future point in time. If it is clear, that this relationship is not one we wish future engagement with, what is the purpose for us to continue on at the moment? 

In today's society, the intent to escalate can be to gain likes and comments on social media. When phones are out, live streaming can also occur. At any given time, edited video often presents the situation in a completely different context, with the one filming, coming out as being the victim.

Today, let us reflect on past conflict we have been engaged in, and analyze what better choices we could have made. What was our intent when we were arguing? Was the relationship, one we wanted to continue to improve?

We must always accept responsibility for our own choices. Likewise, we must allow others to take responsibility for theirs... even if their choice is to blame another, we don't have to accept that blame. We simple will agree, we are going to disagree.

As we reflect upon our success, daily we will explore our commitment to ourselves and what the goals we set. Taking time to write down what went wrong, what was a struggle, and what was a complete failure will help us to gain insight on how to overcome the times, when we struggle and fail to keep the commitments to ourselves.
Focusing on our internal commitments, will strengthen the external commitments we make to others.
