Personal Development, Business, Finance, and Investing for Everyone
An investment in knowledge always pays the best interest.
Control what you can, Cope with what you can’t, Concentrate on what counts, Change what you can, and Accept the things you can't.
You have the power to change your reactions, expectations, and outlook. You have the power to become anything you want to become.
At times, it can seem like life is our enemy, as if things never quite pan out the way we would like them to, as if there's a secret conspiracy against us. However, it's critical to remember that, in reality, life isn't our enemy. There is no conspiracy. Life is just life. It is what it is. The factor that can make life seem like our enemy, however, is our thinking. Nothing is more, nothing less. Life wants you to succeed just as much as it does the next person.
It's very helpful to remind yourself (daily) that your life isn't your enemy. While you're at it, remind yourself of the tremendous power of your own thinking, that your world is shaped by those thoughts you choose to focus on the most. You have the power to change your reactions, expectations, and outlook. You have the power to become anything you want to become.
Do something positive, something you have control over. Once you start thinking in these terms, you'll be amazed at how easy and enjoyable it is to create the abundance you desire and deserve.
This strategy is adopted from the serenity prayer that says, in it's entirety: "Lord, grant me the strength to change the things I can, the serenity to accept the things I cannot, and the wisdom to know the difference." What an incredibly powerful message! Can you imagine how smoothly your life would run if you could implement this strategy most of the time?
There are things we can change, that we have some power to control. There are other things that are absolutely beyond our control. Yet how often do we spend our time and energy doing absolutely nothing about the things we do have some control over, while whining and complaining about those things we can't do anything about? Often, because we have our priorities twisted in the wrong direction, we end up chasing our tails and wasting time. Once we change gears, put these factors into proper perspective, and focus only on those things that we have some capacity to control, it's easy to get back on track.
And when you pray, ask God for wisdom, guidance and direction.
Stay safe and healthy. God bless!
