to make each swing better than the last.
The repetition of a faulty swing would be worse than useless.

to moderate our anger response,
over time, we can train ourselves to respond
to events as we choose - without anger.

but you can put yourself on your own training program

is my own emotional response to the events of my life,
and I am committed to consistently distinguishing
between my feelings about events
and the physical occurrence of those events.
I declare that everyone who has ever played any role
in any of the events of my life is entirely without fault.
- Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Most people consider the course of events as natural and inevitable.
