If you find yourself thinking of others in the following terms: idiots, incompetent, irresponsible, morons, etc.  This means that you most likely carry an INTERNAL MEASURING stick that you judge others by.  Most likely you are hard on yourself and equally hard on others.

In order to reduce your stress and anger, one of the things you need to do is get rid of this internal measuring stick as you will get frustrated by people who don’t measure up and people that excel past you will cause fear in you because YOU suddenly are the one that doesn’t measure up.

Get rid of the stick by believing that people are not trying to do things to you but rather they are doing things to PROTECT themselves.  Your goal is to add value to others.
