We cannot control what others do or say, but we have total control over our behaviors and internal state. We don't have to be scared, angry, nervous or jealous. We have a choice in how we react to all circumstances. Choose the right reaction. Make the right decisions. Keep moving forward, no matter what.
“Happiness and freedom begin with a clear understanding of one principle: Some things are within our control, and some things are not. It is only after you have faced up to this fundamental rule and learned to distinguish between what you can and can’t control that inner tranquility and outer effectiveness become possible.” – The Art Of Living
Whatever is in your way, you’re stronger than it, you’re tougher than it, and you’re better than it. You’re going to beat it.
Remember that planning is the key to beating all obstacles!

PS - Focus on abundance, not scarcity.
“When there is scarcity, we worry a lot about getting our fair share—what goes to him doesn't go to me. The harvest becomes fraught with danger and competition. When we worry more about planting, though, sharing the harvest gets a lot less complex. Plant enough seeds and the scarcity eases. In fact, if you plant enough, you'll never have to think twice about the harvesting.” – Seth Godin
