It was time for self-reflection today. I am almost done with it.
I have come to the conclusion that it is time to pay attention to what I can control, what is within my control, and give little or no attention to what I can't... where emotions would run high, fear, anger, concern... for me.
I noticed something today about some of the most successful people I know... which might help you…
Can you guess at how they might have responded to the election?
They did not respond the way that most Clinton supporters did.
And they did not respond the way that most Trump supporters did.
They did something different to the majority… because the crowd tends to be wrong. What makes us, as humans, so powerful, is our ability to think independantly and rationally.
Yet at such an important time, we see emotions running high on all sides.
And when you find those energies are sucking you in a direction, it can be worth taking a moment of awareness…
What I’m about to say might change your day entirely...
Your life is your life. And only what you have control over makes a difference in the quality of your life.
Who is the president: not so much. The country's economy: not so much.
You need to do what you have control over: grow yourself, grow your knowledge, activate capacities, and be a winner.
In every economic climate there are winners and there are losers.
Losers are the ones that pay attention to the irreleevant.
Winners are the ones that pay attention to what they have control over.
The best we can do at times is work on what we have control on, and hope that spills over to have a greater effect on the world…
So today I put this as my desktop background…
