What’s In Your Control

What's in your control

What is in your control?

In a business review this afternoon, a young colleague presented his quarterly plan. As a preamble, he began by emphasizing his intention to prioritize aspects within his control while consciously avoiding concerns beyond his control.

His messaging triggered in my mind the memory of a lovely post I came across on LinkedIn a few days back about things we all can control in our lives.

I am sharing below The Things you can control. Take a moment to go through the list. It’s powerful.

  1. Your beliefs.
  2. Your attitude.
  3. Your thoughts.
  4. Your perspective.
  5. How honest you are.
  6. Who your friends are.
  7. What books you read.
  8. How often you exercise.
  9. The type of food you eat.
  10. How many risks you take.
  11. How kind you are to others.
  12. How you interpret situations.
  13. How kind you are to yourself.
  14. How often you say, “I love you.”
  15. How often you say “Thank you.”
  16. How you express your feelings.
  17. Whether or not you ask for help.
  18. How often you practice gratitude.
  19. How many times you smile today.
  20. The amount of effort you put forth.

We live in a world of unknowns that we cannot always control. This list is an excellent reminder of what we can rightfully control, always !!
