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?

Wealth Insight 2009-10-23 What is it worth to keep us ignorant? Profits are huge when you can keep your costs very low. At the same time you need to convince people to pay as much as possible. The lower the costs and the higher the price you can charge, the better. The skin care and cosmetics industry is a great example – but there are many, many others. Including wealth creation. Let’s take the beauty industry: The costs are low because the ingredients are cheap. Often, they... Read more...

n Tydtjie terug het ek besef dat ek die verkeerde drome nagejaag het en dat waar ek was  as gevolg van my eie toedoen was. Ek het besef dat ek bestem was vir iets groter en beter. Hierdie konstante gevoel van onvervuldheid en soeke na antwoorde het my gelei tot die bywoning van Hannes se inligtingssessie 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...

What changes I experienced over the past 49 days.   When I started the challenge I had a daily task of opening the news first thing when I got to the office.   This made me wonder why I came back to South Africa as I was in the USA for 5 years, as everything that you read was negative. This also tends to make me negative and grumpy.   I changed this and now the first thing I do when I get to the Read more...

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...
