Although easier said than done, it’s VITAL
I did an experiment.
I’ve found this “method” is used my the most successful people in business.
It’s easy to say, yet tougher to do…. AND STILL YOU MUST!
FOCUS ONLY ON WHAT YOU CAN CONTROL!
That’s what I do….
Can you (at this very moment) control the government?
NO! So don’t focus on it.
I stopped watching the news, and I don’t miss it. I’m not being programmed. I’m not filling my mind with 90% negative thoughts in the morning (or evening). Instead, I focus on happy thoughts, playing with my dogs, and custom designing my life. So far, so good! Control your own emotions and create your own personal economy and the “noise” tends to decrease. This practice alone bumped my monthly revenue by 10%.
Can you control if someone is an a## hole? NO! But you can control if you enter the room they occupy. You can control not answering their call. You can ignore them. You do have that control.
Here’s a good one…. Can you control your income? Some would say, “NO…. I’m stuck in a job I hate with no room to grow.” Others will say YES, you always have options. The latter is correct. You ALWAYS are in control of your income. You can increase your knowledge. You can quit a crappy job. You can start your own business. You can get a second job. You can invest differently. You can save more. You ALWAYS are in control. Never let anyone tell you differently. They are out of control.
Can you control your body? YES YES YES. When people say they have a “food addiction” as an example, that is an excuse, an escape and not being honest. Food is not heroin. You are not addicted. You decided (consciously or subconsciously) that you like the food and you associate it with comfort or pleasure….. that’s it. You are always in control. Stop saying dis-empowering things (if you are). When you skip a few workouts and your butt doesn’t look like you want, um…… you lost control!
Get back in control 😉
Can you control your relationships? YES. Of course, this can be challenging due to the emotions involved, but even people in various type of abusive relations ALWAYS have a way out. It’s fear, anxiety and the unknown which allows them to “think” they have no options. But, that just isn’t true. There is ALWAYS an option. There is always a choice. Always. Letting anyone have power over you, let’s THEM keep control. This is the opposite of what you want.
REMEMBER, when you say you are “stuck” your brain stops looking for solutions. Instead, when you think you may be “frustrated” your brain wants to reduce the frustration and create a solution – A CHOICE. That puts you in control.
You deserve to be in control. You deserve everything you want in life.
I’m here to support you any way I can.
PS – So, what are the overall results from my experiment? 10% bump in revenue (in 90 days). I’m happier. I’m more organized. Life is easier. Give it a try. Just focus on what you can control. Let everything else……………… go!
