Every day, you are in school. And part of learning to live your life is in developing the ability to accept what cannot be changed and living creatively with what IS within your control.
Why you CAN influence certain things, you cannot control:
- How much money you make
- What your kids become
- Who you marry
- 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
- If your spouse loves you
Acceptance is hard for many of us. There are as many reasons for resisting acceptance as there are people.
But when we accept what cannot be changed, we actually open ourselves up to the infinite possibilities available to what CAN be changed – ourselves.
Action – What or who are you trying to control? Release your grip on it today. Shift your attention to more creative solutions you really can control.
Open up a world of opportunities through acceptance.
