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?

Hier is my opdrag vir die Kaizen uitdaging les 49. Ek glo dat jy dit seker in Engels sou verkies, maar alhoewel ek goed tweetalig is, sal ek nie reg aan die opdrag kan laat geskied as ek dit nie in Afrikaans doen nie. Ek weet jy verkies dat dit nie minder as 400 woorde moet wees nie en indien ek dit nie maak nie, sal dit bloot wees omdat Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-09-25 Instinct or indoctrination? We taste a new dish. We like it or dislike it. We call it being individual. A matter of personal taste. We meet someone new. We instantly trust or mistrust them. We call it instinct. Gut feel. Intuition. We encounter a new idea. We instantly trust or mistrust it. Instinct, again. Gut feel. Intuition. Are we right or are we wrong? Mostly it doesn’t matter. If your job is not about food, then who cares? If you’ll never see the... Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-09-18 Getting beyond ‘easy’ Those of us who have made a career of finding out the truth sometimes struggle to get through to people. We have this problem: how do we get across to others the truth we’ve found and turned into systems that anyone can follow? What we’ve learned has taken us far away from what most people are taught to believe. So their first response is disbelief …  “What do you mean, the Formula for Riches® says... Read more...

During the Kaizen Challenge I have reminded myself every day that whatever image I hold before me will become my reality– that the future is in my hands. This is a tremendous realisation if you deeply meditate on it, a huge spiritual realisation. It is such a profound Read more...
