Control

One thing we humans love is control—to be in control. Or, at least, we love the idea of being in control. We tend to link control with safety.

The important thing is what we focus on. What is it we want to be in control of? What are we in control of?

Answer is, ourselves. Nothing more, nothing less. Of course, external factors are important in our lives, but what’s most important is how we respond to them, how we perceive them, and how much of our power we give to them. All this important work is done inside.

If you want to be in control, focus on your thoughts, your beliefs, and your values.
