Be like a duck


Tip #12: Be like a duck.

I grew up with ducks. I learned something from those ducks.

When it rains just let the water roll off your back. Have you ever seen the way water beads up on a ducks back and rolls off it?

When my feelings are hurt because someone is criticizing me or when someone is in a bad mood around me I try to remember to be like a duck and let the feelings or words just roll off of me. I visualize their hurtful words as water beading up and rolling off my back and then I waddle off in search of more positive, pleasant people to be around.
