Take Action: I Quit

Real Estate Agent with Big Block Realty 858.232.8722 CA BRE# 01261476

"For peace of mind,

resign as general manager of the universe."

~ Physician, Dr. Larry Eisenberg



Your action for today

is to see if you are trying to control

someone's behavior and let go instead.

The #1 lesson I learned in sales

and parenting:


"Don't want it for them more

 than they want it for themselves."

We have long resigned from figuring anything out.  Besides it is none of our business what others are up to.  We just ride the waves and go with the flow!

Hi Thomas- I love this!   I am working on that with family members...not so much controlling but worrying about them. I have to remind myself that it is their life.

Hello Thomas - a good reminder to those who have heard this.  It's so true.  Putting it into practice can make "it" and "you" more successful.

Trying to control someone else is not an effective way to get things done, they certainly have to want to do something on their own before they will do it effectively.

Control often takes infinite attention, and is ultimately fleeting fleeting in nature.  It also takes responsibility, and you may find it isn't worth it!

Hi Thomas,  Thanks for sharing this quote.  So true - it seems the more you try to help some people the more they do the opposite.  You are better off just taking care of yourself.
