Control What You Can Control

This is one of the things I say to myself and others several times a day.  Often times more to myself than others if I’m being honest.

You can’t control what other people do, how they do it, or how they react to the world around them.

You can’t control their attitudes, actions or reactions but you can, and must, control yours.

The only two things you can control each day is your attitude and your effort.

Easier said than done sometimes, but if you can stay in control of those two things you will have the ability to remain calm in stressful situations. 

This not only helps you, but also helps those you are around and leading to remain calm as well.

A simple saying, a simple thought, but often times the most simple things can have the biggest impact when you can do them. 

Don’t make life more difficult than it needs to be.  Keep it simple.  Master the simple.

I’m cheering for you.
