I love and accept that there are some situations that I cannot control

I let go of my tendency to try to be in control of everything. What a relief it is! No longer do I have to be responsible for everything. It is much easier to focus on what I can control, instead of worrying about the things I cannot control anyway!

 What can I control? I can control my own thoughts and actions. I can control how I react to events. And I can control my expectations.
 
When I focus on what I can control, I find that I become more effective. Instead of fretting over a challenge, I seek solutions and take action on my decisions.
 
Instead of worrying about what others will think, I live true to my own morals, ethics, and beliefs. In being true to myself, I strengthen my self-esteem.
 
Rather than bemoan a situation, I take whatever action I can to make things better. Taking decisive action reduces my stress about the situation and gives me hope for a better day ahead.
 
I accept that I cannot control the actions of others and I prefer it that way. Truly, how complicated life would be if I had the responsibility of controlling and directing everyone!
 
Simply letting go of the need to control takes the weight of the world off my shoulders.
 
Today, I plan to accept whatever the day brings, do what I can where I can, and let the rest go!
 
Self-Reflection Questions:
 
1.    Do I get frustrated at situations beyond my control?
2.    How can taking decisive action reduce my stress about a current challenge?
3.    What can I do to let go of something out of my control?

I have always known that I am responsible for my own destiny – if I don’t like the way my life is panning out, only I can change it;  I cannot expect anybody else to do it for me. The big question for me was how?   I had been searching for something for so long, with the feeling that if I kept on looking eventually Read more...

Over the past 49 days I have learned to keep a program and work towards a defined goal/plan. I discovered the importance of putting myself ahead of everyone(except god) and everything.

This realization has released such energy via thought, that one occasional still fall back on the idea that this might just be a dream. This however is clearly shattered with numerous small examples of the visualization to realization process which confirms the process in hard “personal” evidence. The realization that the God live in you and your are Read more...
