I’m listening to a CD series that really delves into the secrets of the wealthy and successful. The one this morning touched on just what you can and can’t control.
We often say we have no control when things happen to us. The author’s argument is that, yes you do. You may not have been able to control what happened but what you think is what you become. Therefore you often attract the things that happen to you. Arguably, you can’t control what happened but you can control how you react and what you think.
The powerful and wealthy perpetuate the myth that you can’t control what happens because they want you to believe that you don’t have control. By accepting that belief, we accept that others control our destiny. This allows us to just accept what has happened.
Alternatively, we could look at a situation and see what we can do to make it a positive. For example, you get a flat tire. You can choose to be angry and frustrated because you are late for an appointment or instead, you can understand that maybe the universe just protected you from something far more major because now you won’t be face to face with a greater catastrophe. Maybe if you made that flight, the plane may have crashed. Because you missed the flight, so many other things in the universe changed that the plane was fine and so are you!
We are ultimately responsible for our own destiny. No one else. Every action causes a reaction. The question is, do you want to take the action or do you want to always be reacting?
They really don’t want you to know that you have control. If you realized that, ultimately, they would then have to relinquish their control over you.
What will it be? The choice is yours to make.
Make it a great day!
P.S. What am I thankful for today? I’m thankful God gave me the ability to think for myself. I’m thankful the universe presents so many wonderful opportunities. I’m thankful every day I’m on the top side of the daisies!
