    One has to be kept cool at the time of frustration, otherwise he will went wrong in his track/course.

    If you start with "One", do not change pronouns.

    One must keep cool when frustrated or one will go off course.

    Thank you Anglika.

    But, could you tell me what you mean the `go off course'?

    In the dictionary, go off has lots of meaning, really it is tough to understand.

    Re: track/course

    "off course" = not moving forward as expected.

    A ship sets a course for a voyage; if it goes off course, it has changed direction.

    It is the opposite of "on course" = going in the required direction.
