If someone knocks on your door and offers you a product or something, your momentum has been stopped, your focus was cut. You feel bad, you feel disappointed because you're already on a roll and there is something that stops your progress. You feel angry because that something that stops you is not related to your goal, it is full of shit and worthless but it is what it is, you have to move one, you have to go back fast from what you are doing because you might lose your momentum forever if you keep on dealing with your bad emotions. Just completely get rid of that bad emotion and go back working.
Always remember that it is normal to have some disturbance, it is part of the process and you can't do anything about it. You can't have control on everything but you have full control of yourself, you can shut down the part of your brain that is telling you to feel bad and curse everything.
You should handle your emotions very well, stop giving value too much to petty things that won't help you. Once something stops your momentum, have the ability to go back fast to your original state. Go back to your work and forget what happened. Because the moment you go back to your work, even if you still feel bad, that negative emotion will slowly go away, you will feel better in a little while. You will have your momentum back and be on a roll again. This time you will move faster and stronger because you knew that you have to make up for the time that you've lost.
It is possible to get rid of bad emotions fast, I don't know why a lot of people are dwelling on small things that affects them too much. I don't know why they are so invested on small things that doesn't matter, I think they think that they are going to live forever. If you know that life is short then you must learn how to enjoy things even the bad ones because those ugly moments are still part of your life and you cannot do anything to erase it. You just need to accept it and be ok with it.

Real successful people doesn't care if something goes wrong and it is just a minor issue. Their ability to come back fast on what they are doing makes them so special. They were so focused on getting their goals that is why small bumps on the road cannot rattle them or disturb them. They don't wanna waste any second for something stupid, all they care about is taking the next step and the next one and the next one. Anything that is not related to their business, they don't care about it.

It is good for making your body function better, it will make the blood in your mind flow well.
Another good method that will bring you to your normal state is breathing. Just breath deeply for a few times, you can breathe at last 20 times, inhale to the fullest and exhale to the fullest. This will also clean your troubled mind and make you think clearly again. It is like meditating. Breathing will remove your negative thoughts and will restart your brain to zero. It is like emptying your brain so you can have a fresh start.
A lot of people is having trouble in their life because if someone disturbs them, they will get mad immediately and they will allow themselves to ruin their day.
