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?

This moment is light years away from where I found myself 2 years ago. It is at once the exciting end of a 49 day challenge that seemed to evolve from a two year journey, yet at the same time it has magic wrapped up in it like any wonderful new experience upon which one is about to embark, like getting married to your sweetheart or Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-10-30 The true nature of money – and why it matters Money is part of our everyday life. Like sunshine or rain. We even think of it as a kind of force of nature, not of our making. Yet money is a man-made thing. And the way it was made affects us. It encourages us to do certain things. For example, take inflation. Governments create inflation by printing too much money. They then hide the size of the problem. - So our hard-earned money loses value fast. - And we then... Read more...
Wealth Insight 2009-08-07 When instinct seems to fail Last week I gave you an example of when instinct saves the day. How people who stay connected to their inner voice of truth so often get it right. But sometimes split-second decision-making goes wrong. How can that be? Example 2: Let’s look at the next example. The movie Crash is a very thoughtful movie, building on Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. The point is to show that racism is complex. It makes people who do not think of... Read more...

Ek het baie getwyfel oor of ek die kursus moet aanpak of nie, die geld was skraps en ek sou dit sekerlik op ander maniere beter kon aangewend. Maar nadat ek ‘n paar maande uitgestel het, met net ‘n drukstuk in my dagboek-stelsel, het ek op laas oë toegeknyp en Read more...
