Everyone is in school, every day. And part of the “school of life” is learning how to accept what can’t be changed and how to live creatively with what is within your control.

While you can influence certain things, you cannot control:

  • How much money you make
  • What your kids become
  • The future of the company
  • The state of the economy
  • Who moves in next door
  • Whether the guy down the hall does his work properly
  • Or if your spouse even loves you

Acceptance is hard for many of us. But when we accept what can’t be changed, we open ourselves up to the infinite possibilities available to what can be changed – ourselves.

Action – Release your grip on the people and things you are trying to control. Shift your attention to more creative solutions you really have power over.

Open up a world of opportunities through acceptance.
