There are a lot of things in life and in your business that you can’t control.
You can’t control what other people do.
Or what they don’t do.
You can’t control what regulations come down the pike.
Or what happens to the economy.
Or who or what wins elections. (Brexit, the US presidential election, etc.)
So what can you do?
Focus on those things that you can control.
Fix the problems that you can fix.
And for everything else, stand back and be an observer.
As best you can, remove your emotional stake in those things you cannot control.
If you are able to take this liberating attitude, you’ll notice your anxiety reduces ten-fold.
You’ll be calmer, you’ll think more clearly and you’ll get more done.
And you’ll be happier.
One more thing – when you’re calmer, clear-headed and feeling positive, you’ll begin to see solutions to problems that previously seemed insurmountable.
And you’ll discover you can control more things in life than you thought you could.
Only then can you begin to truly make a difference in the world.
