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?

This is how my story begins; towards the middle of last year I saw an advert in the newspaper about a free seminar on wealth creation. For some reason I could not shake it out of my mind and I took a decision to attend. The seminar was held in Midrand in the early evening. From that day I have never regretted because Hannes has continued to challenge all Read more...

Let me first say I have followed your Mentorship program for two years now and I know what an amazing teacher you are already, but it was only once I started the Kaizen Challenge that I realized how deep your knowledge is. I now truly understand the passion you have to improve people's lives and I’m extremely grateful for Read more...

Thank you for a brilliant course in the Kaizen Challenge.  For me it went over the 49 days allocated and took the entire July, August, September and only ended on October 13...coincidentally on the same day as the 30th Voet van Africa Marathon. I ran 10 km in 59 minutes and Read more...

Do I feel like one in a million? A resounding yes! Do I regard myself as superior to my contemporaries? No! I only think that I may be able to use my talents more productively (sometimes).   I am a hard of hearing, hands-on father of 2 Angels (2 and 4 years). I can only meaningfully communicate in a person to person basis. In group situations I am like a Read more...

Wealth Insight 2009-08-21 If you’re gold, for goodness’ sake, glitter! Remember the story last week about the woman who was gold to her boss, but he never noticed? He treated her like nothing special, and she left. And that was when he realized for the first time that she was an angel in disguise. She was gold, but he hadn’t noticed. He really lost out, but how about her? She did too. She left with nothing. After 20 years of building someone else’s business. Why?... Read more...
