In other words, as human beings we are capable of developing a skill that allows us to control what things mean to us. Let me give you an example from my experience. Every morning when I bike to work (in Denmark many people prefer to bike), sometimes I get pushed or cut off by some guy/girl biking like crazy God knows where. Now maybe he/she cut me off on purpose, maybe not, but the truth of the matter is that I don't really care. Instead of yelling at the back or cursing him, I condition my mind that he must be in an extreme hurry and did not do it on purpose. You see why I do so, don't you? Right, I want to stay in a good mood or so to speak the emotional state by charging myself with that positive flow of energy allowing me to produce results I want. Being only in that emotional state you can produce result you want.
