What CAN I do about an issue that’s challenging or frustrating me?
Quote: “While we may not be able to control all that happens to us, we can control what happens inside us.” –Benjamin Franklin
Do you realize we worry about 90% of things that never come to pass? Your body does not know when your “worry-danger” is real or imagined; it responds with equal stress. Imagine three concentric circles. The core is labeled “CAN CONTROL,” the middle layer is labeled “INFLUENCE,” and the outer one is labeled “CAN’T CONTROL.” Get a realistic grip of what’s in your direct control and what’s not. If it’s not in your CAN, it’s in someone else’s. Focus your time and energy on things in your CAN circle.
