HERE COMES THE SUN

A NEW DAY BEGINS

No matter how diligently you set goals, visualize results, and affirm a positive outcome, every once in a while your life is going to feel as if it's gone a little crazy. Carefully laid plans go up in smoke - sometimes quite literally. People you counted on, bail out on you. Suddenly you feel as if you're completely off course, out of control, and lost at sea.

At times like this, there are a few things it may help you to remember. First of all, no one can control every aspect of his or her life, and adversity comes to all of us, no matter how moral we are, and no matter how good our attitude is. Bad things happen to good people all the time.

Second, it's important to realize that there is one and only one thing in life that is completely within your power to control, and that is your response to what happens to you. When you find yourself overcome with feelings of fear, helplessness, doom and gloom, you can put the brakes on these feelings by gently but firmly choosing to shift the focus of the thoughts that are running through your mind.

Your feelings are a direct result of the thoughts you think, and setting aside some time every morning and evening for positive visualization, affirmation, or guided meditation is a highly effective way of getting these thoughts back under your control again. Try it. I think you'll be surprised at just how well it works.

Have A Beautiful Day!

So true, I share the Sphere of Control with my past executive and sales coaching client. Focus on what you can control. When we return our focus on what we can control, we do reduce our stress and improve our overall well being.

I keep telling Diane nothing to stress about that what you have no control over... needless to say 27 year later I still have not been able to convince her:)Endre
