Look Inside for the Solution

Look inside for the solution rather than outside.

Whenever you feel hurt or angry – Ask yourself:
“Whose Business” am I in?

There are only three kinds of business in the world: 
Mine, yours (or theirs), and Nature’s (or God’s).

Whose business is it if an earthquake or tsunami happens? 
- Nature's or God's.
Whose business is it if your neighbor has an ugly lawn? 
- Your neighbor's.
Whose business is it if you are angry at your neighbor because he has an ugly lawn? 
- Yours.

When facing any unpleasant situation, ask yourself: “Whose Business” am I in?
Make a habit of Counting - how many times you are mentally in someone else's business? 

When you give uninvited advice or offer your opinion about something - aloud or silently- 
ask yourself: 
"Am I in my business or theirs?
