I don’t think the importance of taking control is stressed enough.
Taking control does not necessarily mean doing a whole 360 change. It is as simple as choosing one thing you want to change and actually taking steps towards it. All you need to do is take the first step which could be waking up an hour earlier or creating a habit. That simple or not so simple task lol is a stepping stone to taking control of your decisions and actions.
This may already be common knowledge but I only recently experienced it and i decided to share. I read Mark Manson’s book “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k” and there was a chapter where he wrote about not being special in the sense that everyone has gone through or will go through whatever obstacle you are currently faced with. My understanding of that is you don’t allow what you are dealing with or going through control you because something can only feel like it’s controlling if you allow it.
So we are back to TAKING CONTROL! and making intentional decisions because only you have the power to allow something affect you. Take control of your thoughts, your time and your space. Choose what you want to think about, what you want to dedicate you time to and who you allow in your space because all these things could affect you negatively or postively.
Nothing without intention by Solange is something i listen to and remind myself of everyday.
Thanks for reading… I hope you are as inspired as I am and decide to take control. Feel free to let me know the steps you’re taking.
