As human nature provides, all of us want to have control of what goes on around us.
That way, we could make everything be on our own timeline.
We could make everything align with the exact idea we have on how something should work.
We could make things so much easier for ourselves.
But, that’s not how it works (unfortunately for you and I).
So, what can we do?
If we can’t seem to ever get things to align with our personal road of life?
I’ve found that the best thing to do is realize that the timeline we create in our heads can’t be in stone… we have to let it be flexible. And that is hard.
The personal timeline that we create in our minds is IDEAL, when in reality it needs to be an IDEA…
The timeline we create and the picture we paint should be an IDEA of how it could go, but it will never be perfect.
Because we never have 100% control of everything.
However, there is a silver lining to this picture: We can identify the pieces of our timeline and our picture that we can control, then apply ourselves fully to those pieces.
Once we identify what we have in our hands, we can start to be more effective.
It’s hard to focus on everything.
That’s what I struggle with: Thinking that everything involved around me is important right here, right now.
It’s all about taking a step back.
Just taking a look around you and reminding yourself of what you can control and what is important.
After that, you and I can only hope that it all falls into place.
Today, I’m going to focus on what is in my hands and my control.
