Take control of your situations before they control you! At times, unexpected circumstances may arise. How you respond to this can allow you to be ‘out of control’ or remain ‘in control’. For example, if someone is shouting at you, then you can respond in a quiet manner. To shout back would only escalate the situation. However, to remain quiet will deescalate the problem.
Look at your situations objectively. Do you respond to impulse? If this is the case, why not take a step back and analyse the situation before deciding to take a course of action!
You can say “I am open to the insights of others”. Because you’re already aware situations that occur in life, teach us many things. For example, you’re personality. You may recognise that previously retaliating in an angry way, you now choose to answer softly. While embracing the support of those who can teach and guide you.
No one could ever make a decision for you. Despite how others may feel about you. It really is your choice! The daily battles you face and victories won should tell you to take control of your situations.
However, situations can become unhealthy. If this is the case, let go, and move on. Those unhappy feelings of circumstances sap your energy. And as a result, you have already become negative emotionally. Don’t blame yourself, as this cannot resolve any of your problems. Be positively confident and change your circumstance.
After all, it is you that can only decide the best course of action.
1. Am I accepting responsibility for my own happiness?
2. Are there situations in which I have allowed myself to be a victim rather than taking charge of my own destiny?
3. Is there a situation in my life that needs to be altered? What is the first step I need to take to do so?
