Let us talk about you and regaining even more control over your life. When you feel you have control, you have a sense of power, direction and clarity of purpose. Unfortunately, you don’t have as much control over people and circumstances as you may like, but then again, you do, ultimately, have a lot more control and influence than you may have thought.

Following is a trend I have seen with people: When they feel they do not have control over circumstances, they allow themselves to “lose control” in areas of their lives they actually DO have control over!

Before you know it, you have consumed far more food than you intended, or spent far more money than you meant to. Wildlife removal near me.

Okay, perhaps you don’t do so, but do you know anybody who does? When you think about it, it’s interesting (is that the right word?) To let yourself get even further out of control, just as it would be a good idea to flex your control muscle.

Let us take a look at regaining that wonderful feeling of power, control and self-direction. First, make a list of all the things you have control over. Yes, you’ll be starting on your own, but expand that list until you’ve got 20-plus ideas. You’ll begin feeling better already just to remind yourself just how much control you have over your thoughts, feelings, and actions!

Then create a list of things you can influence. Of course, you can’t control people, but you can influence lots of them. If you couldn’t, there wouldn’t be any promotion degrees, and I wouldn’t be giving seminars on persuasion and discussion!

By the way, once you’re listing things you can influence, don’t hold back. You have a lot more influence than you may think. By way of example, you can’t control traffic, but you can control what time you wake up and leave the home.

Want to recover a sense of control over the next 24 hours?

Try this: the moment you’re finished reading this, write ONE action, just 1 action, you can take now that will allow you to find this as a successful day. Tie this action to something that you truly appreciate. After that, do that one thing.

If you’re feeling you have more time to do something else, go ahead and write down another product. Just make certain to make your actions manageable and clear. If one action is good, 20 are NOT better! Actions you can take tomorrow to help that day succeed.

Now, prioritize this short list. And incidentally, you cannot do all actions at once, so make certain to have a clear #1, etc.

Many studies prove that if you create a list at the end of the day, a few cool benefits occur:

You will have less stress, and be able to leave work at work

You’ll sleep better

Your subconscious will come up with some clear ideas about how best to handle this short list

You’ll have more energy and focus, and so, more success, the next day
