Anger : A Punishment
What is anger: Anger is the punishment which you are giving to yourself for other people’s action.
If you want to grow in your life, stay away from this. You might have seen many people who maintain their cool and calm in every problematic situation, just asses their level of success. With anger you can win the moment but you can’t win the hearts of people.
There is a simple formula, the more you grow, cooler you have to become. If you don’t learn how to control anger, then gods bless you. More success brings you to deal with more people and most of the times you become smarter with success. You will see lot of stupidity happening in your surroundings, love that stupidity and smile on it rather than being angry.
If by you bring angry, stupidity can be reduced, for sure then do it . But you will find it’s not happening so why to give yourself a punishment for other’s stupidity. Make life simple and make it cool.
I will share a small story which might help many to manage their cool.
The Nails in the Fence
There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence. The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.
Finally, the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone. The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence.
He said, ‘You’ve done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won’t matter how many times you say I’m sorry, the wound is still there and a verbal wound is just as bad as a physical one.
