There are so many things in this world that some people will say matters to them. Family, friends, opinions, this and that. In paradox, there are many things in this world that do not matter. I think the most important thing that matters is your state of being. How you handle situations and circumstances. No matter what you encounter, if you can stay calm, focused, and responsive you can overcome any chance of failure. This reminds me of Bruce Lee’s teachings. He was a master of his state of being which reflected in his martial arts. This is something you should definitely look into and practice self reflection. Things can only get better if you do.
