You think you are doing well.  You feel like you are moving forward.  In your mind, things are going the way they should.  Then all of a sudden someone or something smashes you down and literally takes the wind right out of your sails.  WTF?!?!  This is usually caused by some negative comment about you or the job you are doing.  Comments like these are always tough to hear because we want to be seen as a person that is kicking ass, someone that is a leader, someone that has their shit together.  Sure some of it might be some wishful thinking on our part but regardless, we all will do the best we can to put our self in a good light.  About these other things, or people, that affect you, you are the one that has the control on whether they can derail you or not.  If you buy into the situation, the "what if"s that come with comments from others, the people that have issues with you, or the situations that can be taken as bad by others, then you lose all control of the situation.  You are at the mercy of everything else around you.  I think you need to be as William Ernest Henley says in his poem "Invictus", "I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul."  When you are the Master of your Fate and the Captain of your Soul, yes you are in control of your actions and the things you do but more importantly, YOU are the wind in your sails.  People, comments, or situations CAN NOT knock the wind from them because you are the everlasting wind blowing into the sail of your ship and making it carry you, drive you to where you want to go if you just let it:)

FEEL THE BURN!!!
