Earning Angry

Angry about something?
Your home life?
Your divorce?
Your marketshare?
Your sales?
Your golf game?
The environment?

If you're really working hard on any of the above and are totally committed, I'm OK with you being angry. It's understandable. You've earned it.

On the other hand, if you're frustrated because something hasn't come easy, something wasn't handed to you on a silver platter or you just feel uncomfortable, well then, that's tough. No sympathy. It's all posturing, bluster and indignation. Who needs that?

If you're dedicated, focused, tireless, if you're volunteering, changing, practicing--whatever you feel needs to be done to make this work out, then it's OK to be frustrated and show it. Anger is understandable but you have to earn it.
