Creating a negative response in a volatile situation is like adding fuel to a fire. If we keep feeding the situation fuel, the fire gets bigger. Worse, it may spiral out of control.
To squelch the fire, when we stop feeding it fuel, the fire dies out.
Volatility requires energy. If we resist responding, the momentum dwindles. We then control the flame.
When we control the way we respond, and that may be silence, we control the power in a heated exchange.
Let us choose when, how to, or if we should respond, with elegance and confidence today.
