Think Twice About Losing Your Cool

It’s cool to be cool.

I don’t mean being cool because of the clothes you wear, the car your drive or the birds you fly with. I mean cool in the realm of composure. So, if it’s cool to be cool, it’s uncool to lose your cool. Do you remember that deodorant commercial that said if you use that product you will be “cool, calm and collected?” Well, it takes more than that, though it may be a good place to start.

Words of wisdom tell us that “stronger is the man who has self-control than he who can take a city.” Wow. It seems as though it is our own self that is the most difficult to conquer. But, if you can do it, then you really are cool, you look cool and cool is enviable.  When was the last time you saw someone lose their cool? Did you think to yourself, “Boy, I want to be like that!” Probably not. You may have even felt embarrassed for them but certainly were not envious of them. No one likes to feel embarrassed because it feels like the whole world is looking at you and wondering, “What’s up with that one?” We are responsible for ourselves, and must avoid the habit of pointing the finger at others who we say make us do what we do.So let me give you a few ways to help you to keep your cool.

Keep Your Cool by;
1. Expecting things to happen that will challenge your cool.
2. Make a plan ahead of time in view of this happening.
3. Realize that the things that happen to you are for your personal development.
4. Remain cool by not losing it.

    Still working on losing my cool in my department at work! So many ridiculous things and ridiculous people in this environment. Over the years, God has been testing me and teaching me to not lose my cool so quickly due to the foolishness I am surrounded by. Your messages and even Steve’s from last night encouraged and challenged me to pray for the Lord to see each person through His eyes and not my own. Thank yoU!

    what helps me is taking a deep breath and pray before I even respond. my prayer is that God will help me to choose the right words

  3. This is one of the most challenging aspects of my life as a father of 3 small children. My wife and I pray each night for patients and guidance for our children. However, when the new day comes, it’s easy to forget those prayers and get angry. I really need to work on praying in the moment and ask for patients and understanding when it’s needed most!

    Jared, may the Lord bless you and encourage both you and Amy in your daily walk with Him. If you stumble or forget, just get up and start again.
