You need to know the best way to handle anger if you want to master life:


  1. Consider anger as a sin and stop bragging about it.

  3. Say it to yourself, “I will never raise my voice in anger; I am in charge of my emotion” (50 times) in seven days.
  4. I will rather keep quiet (wisely) rather than speak in anger and look foolish (say it 40 times)
  5. During emergencies, I will swallow my saliva ten times when I am really angry before I speak so that I may apply more common sense.
  6. No matter what happens, I will never speak to hurt my partner; my speech will be full of grace and seasoned with salt (Colossians 4:6).
  7. I will allow the Holy Spirit to be in charge of my emotions (Repeat 30 times) Gal 5:22-26.
