Emotion decides the state of your mind and the state of your well being when things go wrong in life. And things do go wrong. So what your emotions be at such times?
I have always said that you should be possessed by the following four emotions or states of mind.

These are the hallmark of life maximize.
You need to declare that whatever happens in life:
1) I will not allow my sense of humour to dwindle. I will always keep it alive!
To solve problems, you need to have a sense of humour – the ability to laugh at yourself and the whole world. You need to be amused with life and everything that life offers, good or bad. (Commandment 8: Emotionally Draining Distractions)
2) I will remain cheerful-happy and ready to create or manufacture the next big thing after a debacle!
To solve problems, you need to be cheerful- the ability to remain in good spirits at all times, be optimistic, bright, and pleasant.
3) I will be confident and remind myself that it is confidence and confidence alone that will help me learn anything, adjust to anything, and accomplish anything in life!
Without confidence, especially when things are not in your favour, you will not be in a position to direct your thoughts, words, and deeds to achieve the next big goal after a downfall. (Commandment 8: Emotionally Draining Distractions)
4) I will remain enthusiastic, vibrant, and excited about life. I will constantly remind myself that even though many things around me are shattered, I still have a lot of things intact in life with bigger goals to achieve!
To solve problems you need to be enthusiastic. I was told many years ago, that an enthusiast is a man possessed by God. Therefore, you should come across as though you are possessed by God.
Your personality should be such that when people see you, interact with you, they should feel that you are shouting out for joy. On looking at you, people should forget their miseries. Your existence should give comfort and peace to everyone. Meeting you should be like a festival- a celebration, a moment to rejoice. (Commandment 8: Emotionally Draining Distractions)
