When you're building a career, it's easy to get caught up in the corporate game.

You gotta get yours.").

Today I had a fight with God when I was driving in my car. Well, I don't really call God God anymore, now that I no longer follow a traditional religious path, so in reality, I yelled at God-Universe-Higher-Power-Guardian-Angel (and yes, I'm still trying out different names).

Anger isn't bad in and of itself. It is just a feeling, not a moral position. If you want to be successful as a leader today, you must come to terms with anger and figure out ways to move it in a direction of good. And like the peace movements, use anger to stop wars, and not start them.
