5 THINGS YOU CAN'T CONTROL

1. What other people think of you.

2. What other people do.

3. What happens around you.

4. The outcome of your efforts

5. The passage of time.

So let go and focus on what you
can control - what you do today.


Now doesn't that make sense? 

It really isn't up to you to manage anything other than your own life. The rest is someone else's business. You just do your best and the rest is going to be the way it is going to be.  "Que Sera Sera, What will be, will be"  

I'm sure you've been told since you were a child to mind your own business. And as it turns out that is exactly what needs to be done. You really have no control over others or what will happen in the future. You don't know how anything will turn out, once set in motion. And no one can stop time. You may not be able to control what happens to you, but you can always control your reactions. So, that leaves you managing you and you alone. Put all your efforts into controlling your actions and reactions and leave others to do the same.

"Being in control of your life and having realistic expectations about your day-to-day challenges are the keys to stress management, which is perhaps the most important ingredient to living a happy, healthy and rewarding life." Marilu Henner

"You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them." Maya Angelou

Let go of what you can't control, put your best foot forward, take care of your own business and leave everything else alone; you have enough to handle.
