Expect Nothing, Accept Everything

Expect Nothing, Accept Everything

There will always be people who will lie and cheat. Its just not healthy for your self to live in the expectation that they won't, and then throw a hissy fit when they do. Remember, in most cases, you will always end up worse off than they do! Much worse.

You end up sticking yourself with resentment, regret, anger and frustration. Remember, you are doing this to yourself!

Accept things for what they are. Become masterful with your mind and your emotional state. Quieten your mind and allow yourself to act with power rather than succumbing to your internal and external upsets.
