Home Reflections I can relinquish control to others.

I can relinquish control to others.

I like letting others be in charge. It saves me time, energy, and worry while allowing me to happily go about my day, doing my best by controlling only myself! 

Even if I have the ultimate responsibility for the outcome of something, I can delegate individual tasks to others. I release the tendency to control any aspect of how the tasks are done, as long as they are completed effectively.
Everyone has their own unique way of doing things and I appreciate our differences. Letting others have control over their own assigned tasks results in better quality work. We work better together when I don't try to control everything.
This is true both at work and home. At work, my co-workers are more motivated when they know they share control. At home, releasing my control over many of the household tasks to my children allows them to feel needed and learn responsibility.
When I let go of having to control everything, it frees me! A heavy burden is lifted from my shoulders and I am able to go with the flow and just enjoy life!
As I release the need for control, I can feel stress and worry float away with it. I am happier and at peace when I let go.
Today, I choose to let go of any desire to control other people or events, focusing on the joyful simplicity of life when I only need to control myself.
Self-Reflection Questions:
1.    Do I find myself always trying to be the one in charge?
2.    What tasks can I delegate to others to free up some of my time?
3.    Do I allow my children to be in control of their own responsibilities?

Today, I stand at the end of my 49 days of the Kaizen Challenge and in a way I am sad as this has become the pivot around which I created my daily routine and business tasks. This is the first time ever in my life that I have stuck to a plan for 49 days! I used to get started on a specific plan all motivated & excited, only to loose Read more...

Hannes Dreyer se Kaizen Challenge het my geleer om groter, onafhanklik en anders te dink,  want as ek dit nie gaan doen nie gaan iemand anders dit vir my doen.  Ek het met ander oe,  ingesteldheid en fikser liggaam na die mees belangrikste dinge vir my in die lewe begin kyk.  Hannes se vermoee om mens gefokus te laat bly op selfverbetering is verbasend.  Nou moet mens net verder Read more...

Not the Jaguar But my BAMBOO SHOOT I see that my success story was listed but not marked against lesson 49. So I decided to write another on seeing that it is only two days to go and I do want to share what has happened to me over the past year. I registered for the Kaizen Challenge in May 2007. I did the lessons as best I could. I set daily goals Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-06-19 A tale of two students Recently I received two letters written by two completely different people. This is from the first one ...  “I would like to urge anybody who is interested in Internet marketing and Internet businesses not to waste their time and money in ventures like these, since I am living proof due to about 30 trials within 3 years and with nothing new, that I am aware of, on the Internet that can be tried! I think that I tried it all! If you... Read more...

I know I have changed over the last 49 days. In fact, a number of work colleagues and friends have commented on it.  I have completely given up reading the daily newspapers. It's given me more time in my day. Never being one to watch much TV, I watch even less and find my eldest Read more...
