Just what happened, what you learned, and an experience you can use in the future.
What benefits does this have, and why is it useful?
- Emotional detachment — you won’t get too high when it goes well or two low if it doesn’t. Because all you’re doing is learning.
- The outcomes don’t control you — you’re just using the situation to learn, remember? So you gain no matter what happens.
- The people involved don’t matter so much — you can’t control other people anyway, can you? You probably know that well if you think to your past experience. All you’re doing is observing people/situations and learning from them — so again, you gain no matter what happens.
Emotional control: The #1 element of power for any human being. Everything in life involves a situation and people — so when they don’t control your emotions, you’re 85% of the way to power.
