July 23, 2012 – Are things getting out of control? Are things or situations that are out of your control weighing you down and paralyzing your ability to move forward? If you are allowing what you cannot control get the best of you, it is time to shift to focusing on what you can control and can do. No matter how dire the situation is, or how frustrating it is, there is always something you can do.
Take an MM&I Moment to make a list of what you do have control of in your life. List anything and everything regardless of whether it is related to your “out of control” situation. What you will find is that you do have control of many things, the first being how you view, react and accept what is beyond your control. Look at your list and take action on any one item that will best help you move even the slightest step forward in spite of the current challenge or obstacle you are coping with right now. By focusing on what you can do, you may very well uncover a solution that will help you gain more control on other areas.
