Your happiness, job satisfaction, sense of accomplishment, ability to make a difference, and your ultimate success depends upon YOU, not THEM! We tell our three children, “You may not like your teacher, your boss, your coach, and your friends won’t always be nice – so don’t let any of them determine how you feel or act and, which balls you drop, that’s your choice, you’re responsible!
