AYD - April 3, 2013 - Who Has Control?

"If I really want to improve my situation, I can work on the one thing over which I have control - myself."
- Stephen Covey

Some days I am reminded that some of the best messages, are the most straight up obvious.

I could moan and whine about a number of things.  And no, even in the shower I cannot fool myself into thinking I sound good doing it.  Fact is, we all do it.  Complain.  Maybe there is merit in saying that it is healthy to get it out..voice it...give the feelings some freedom.  Like burning a letter to someone that has wronged you is supposed to offer you release to your pent up emotions.

(By the way...do not burn a letter to your boss...in the office...in the kitchen area... just saying.... those results you cannot control.)

So any situation you are in right now that is not favorable...and you are wishing on improvement... identify with it.  Pick one, like a goal, and focus on it.  Now... with this one ... what is happening that is not to your desires...and what is not happening to your satisfaction?  What is it that you Do Not want to continue?  List this out...and it will help you identify what you Do want to happen in a more clearly defined way.

And now - with the items not reaching potential...not meeting the mark.... what have you done about them?
Be honest with yourself... what could you do better?

This is why you start with one situation...break it down a little...add some focus and truth in healthy amounts... and the honesty within will come alot easier. You will find you are even more accepting of the truth when you identify one concern at a time. 


Because one issue at a time is manageable.  

This is a great place to start your control of your self and your input into improving a situation.  Manage one thing..and you can see clearly, and reach with more confidence.  You are not overwhelmed, and losing control.

Work on you...and enjoy doing it, one thing at a time.  Before you know it, compound interest will relieve you of what felt like pressure mounting burdens.

Great morning, Great day.  Greater you, a better day for everyone else.
