Do you consider yourself a control freak? Do you know someone who is a control freak; who needs to be in control of everything? There are many people out there who want to control everything in their environment; both people and situations. They want to control things like: other people’s actions or feelings, whether they get the next sale at work, what other people think, etc. Throughout my years of being mentored by some very successful individuals, they have taught me that there are truly only TWO things only you can control:
Your Actions and your Attitude…
Actions are pretty cut and dry. You either take action or you don’t! Taking action is a necessity if you want to succeed in anything. Without action, nothing happens. Only you are in control on whether you take action or not. You may be tired, sad, angry, happy, busy, etc, but are you taking action towards your goals? Taking action does not require talent, expertise, or ability, but it does require a determination and risk. Even if you don’t know what the results of your actions are, you will never know unless you take the action needed. Are you willing to take action with unknown circumstances and face unknown risks? Can you overcome the fear and doubt and make a move towards success? Nobody has ever succeeded that didn’t take action. Action is what separates the talkers from the doers. Be a doer and take action now!
Our attitude is purely our own choice. No matter what people say or do to us, we have the decision of how we will react. We can look at any situation positively or negatively. The way our attitude is (positive or negative) will determine if we take action or what sort of action we take. When you have a positive attitude, the action you take will provide results. Having a positive attitude includes a positive expectation; that when you take some sort of action, good things will happen. Some people choose to just have a bad attitude about almost everything. You buy them a cake and they complain about the frosting. They get a raise and promotion and they complain about the increase in job responsibility. They could probably find ways to complain about winning the lottery! Positive and negative life events are going to happen whether we expect them or not. Our attitude determines how those events will affect us, whether positively or negatively. When you have a positive attitude you are able to find the silver lining in any situation. At times this may seem very difficult, but they are there if you have a great attitude to find it. Being positive does not come naturally to everyone. Most people have to work on having a positive attitude since we are bombarded everyday with the media and negative news stories. The best way to develop a positive attitude is to read self help and success books. These books will help you to change your thought process and start looking and speaking the best for your life. Begin today to work on your attitude. Remember, a positive attitude is key to your success!
Knowing the two things that you can ultimately control, your actions and attitude, will make your life a whole lot simpler. You no longer have to worry about the outcomes of situations or what other people think. You can’t control those things. Understanding what you can and can not control will enable you to live a much less stressful life and be happy. Work on your attitude and take action with a positive expectation that something good is going to happen. Become a doer and not just a talker and enjoy life.
