The spiritual warrior thinks before taking action.
Shy away from impulse-driven reactions.
Embrace appropriate and measured responses.
The mind can play tricks on you.
Think ahead to recognize how your mind can create a pattern where one doesn’t exist.
When we don’t think clearly, the truth remains hidden as we’re trapped in a loop of habits.
Take note of it for next time.
Certain moments in life will repeat.
And when they do, you’ll have an opportunity to respond in a more detached, and informed and creative manner.
Today, before you react, observe your reaction to react and if you need to say something, ask yourself — is it necessary? Is it true? Is it helpful?
If it is, then go ahead, think it, speak it and act on it.
If it’s not, then let it go.
