Some things are out of our circle of control:

Let’s get real here. Some things are out of our circle of control. It’s that simple. Focus on what you can control:

Your life becomes much more tolerable when you focus on what you can control.

Some examples are:
Your thoughts – positive and negative
Your daily habits
How much you watch T.V.
The amount your are eating.
The amount of your time that you give to others
The amount of fun in your life.

People working in the area of personal and professional development are just like everybody else. How could we possibly know about these things without experiencing them? The difference is we have a toolbox from which to pick out that tool that will “fix” things as best we can.

Questions for you:

What are you reading?
How much of your life is habitual?
How successful has whinging and moaning been to date?
Does watching endless T.V. help you achieve the kind of life you want?
What can you do to replace the food you eat because you are bored?
What can you do to stop becoming bored?
How could you stop running around after everyone else?
What makes you laugh and when did you last laugh?

Focus on what you can control:

If you focus on what you can control then you won’t feel as if life is controlling you! Start to focus on what makes you feel good. Listen to the kind of music you like until you are bopping! It does not necessarily need to be costly to feel good. What are you saying repeatedly to yourself in your head?

Here are some ideas for positive change in your life:

Reading positive literature will have a profound effect on your mindset.
A short walk each evening is a start towards a new fitness regime.
List the daily habits that are not serving you well. Change them!
Stop moaning and start living.
What have you always wanted to do but haven’t. You can give up some TV!
If you are eating because you are bored, you need to DO something!
Stop running after everyone and start walking towards a new life.

Be your own chemist:

Laughter is the very best medicine. Be your own chemist. Lighten up.

We may move house, we may change cars, we may even change the colour of our hair. However, we only have one life! So live it!
