Control

Do you need to control everything? Do you feel like you can control everything? What is control? Can you control how much time to you have left? Can you control what the people around you are going to do? Can you control who loves you and is loyal to you? No. The only thing we can control is what we are doing right now.

No matter what you wish for your children, only they can decide what they will actually do. No matter how you want people to treat you. Only they can decide how they will treat you. How they treat you, has nothing to do with you. It reflects how they feel about themselves. If they treat you poorly is because they are threatened by you and have low self esteem. You can’t control any of that.

You can say, I will have a good day. Does that mean nothing bad will happen? No. You can’t control that. However, you can control how you react to certain situations. How you let those situations affect you and your mood. Do you love your job? Probably not. You do love to pay bills and buy things you want? You can’t control what will happen at your job. Nobody has to like you or even respect you. They pay you to do what it is you do and your gonna do it whether you like or not. You have to focus on what you can control. Be there on time. Always do your best. Figure out what they don’t like, and don’t do that, ever. Work is repetitious. When you see something getting ready to happen (again), fix it. Don’t wait until it’s broken or they make you. You control how you are perceived. You need to be the person that never has any issues or problems. The people that are always late, always making the same mistakes, are the ones that get scrutinized and watched closely.

You know that job you don’t like to do? That car that always breaks down you drive? That crappy apartment you live in? You can change all of that. You can decide that you are ready to do what it takes to improve your quality of life. First thing you’re going to say is, I can’t afford a new car or a nicer place. Excuses. Why do we always come up with excuses. If you want something you have to learn to work towards it. You control what direction you want your to go. Imagine if instead of coming up with excuses you trained yourself to come up with solutions. Your life would be completely different.

Control is deciding that enough is enough. Control is doing something that you love. Control is loving who you are. Control is creating opportunities for improvement. Control is learning the skills that will improve your life. Control is never giving up until you are done. Control is ignoring the haters. Control is putting yourself first. Control is ignoring the little voice in your head that says, you can’t do it. The voice that says, I’m tired. Control is striving for excellence and not settling for less. You can determine whether you have a good life or a great life. You deserve everything you work hard for. Now forget about what you can’t control and focus on you and what you need to do to get what want.
