Manufacture Your Day by LETTING GO OF CONTROL
Have you ever noticed that part of being human is that so many of us have such a need of control. There are people who would like to control situations, people and outcomes. They simply would like to be certain that everything happens the way they want it to happen.
According to Tony Robbins certainty is one of our human needs. This is the need for safety, stability, security, comfort, order, predictability, control and consistency.
One thing that I have learned over the years is that nothing in life is certain and that it serves us well to let go of control.
Don’t you think that micromanaging every aspect of your life can be exhausting? For me it would be because I like to enjoy life as much as I can.
I have my shortcomings but thankfully I am not a control freak and here is why:
- I have developed mental flexibility
- I focus on the things that I can control
- I believe that whatever happens in my life happens in my favour
“If you are depressed, you are living in the past. If you are anxious, you are living in the future. If you are at peace, you are living in the moment.”
I truly do my best to live in the moment as much as I can.
I am a happiness junkie because I believe that if we approach everything we do with joy, we are in the flow of life and everything seems to be a little bit easier. I do my best to manage my energy wisely by being mindful, self-aware of my emotional state and by surrounding myself with good people.
Why swim against the current if you can swim with it?
Enjoy your well deserved weekend.
