✏ Control the Controllables

God grant me the serenity 
To accept the things I cannot change;
Courage to change the things I can;
And wisdom to know the difference.
— The Serenity Prayer


Were there truer words ever spoken? Reading it, you wonder why it’s so difficult to simply live life like this. Four sentences that have the power to inspire you to live the life you were meant to live! In a perfect world, this would be all you need to hear.

BUT . . . THE WORLD IS NOT PERFECT.

In fact, the only thing certain in this world is uncertainty. When we spend time complaining about the things we cannot control, all we are doing is taking the energy and attention away from what we need to be focused on. Life is stressful enough; why add to it?

5 THINGS YOU CAN’T CONTROL:

  1. What others feel, say, do, or think
  2. The past or the future
  3. Loyalty
  4. Conflict
  5. Most of life . . .

Quit fighting change – EMBRACE CHANGE. The first way to accomplish that is to practice acceptance. It can provide you so many benefits in your life, including a positive attitude, greater appreciation, gratitude, and a better perspective. Your attitude toward life is affected by your ability to EMBRACE CHANGE. 

Change will happen…the question is, will it leave you behind?

“The world still is the samel you’ll never change it,
As sure as the star shines above . . .”

– “You’re Nobody till Somebody Loves You”
written by Larry Stock

Everybody has certain challenges, lessons and constraints. Approach them wisely, and you can still be bold. You just need to know your limits and that includes the things you cannot control. Look for possibilities, and challenge yourself to think outside the boundaries.

By simply controlling two things — your effort and attitude — you can accomplish more than all the other things you cannot control. The strength is in attitude: once you accept and move past change, you have the ability to find peace in your life.

Acceptance will result in gratitude. Gratitude will make you see things differently. That’s freedom.

5 THINGS YOU CAN CONTROL:

  1. Your INTEGRITY
  2. Your CHARACTER
  3. Your PASSION
  4. Your DRIVE
  5. Your GOALS

 

Controlling the controllables requires discipline, and you will experience a lot of trial and error. But when you master the art, there will be a tremendous weight lifted off your shoulders, along with renewed inspiration and excitement to push yourself further in accomplishing your goals.

Leadership is a privilege. Make a difference today.
