… a NEWSLETTER!
I am receiving so many newsletters for stuff I don´t even remember I´ve signed up for. And today I had on my “To-do” list, to de-register from most of them. And what happened? I opened the first one from the ‘coaching training alliance’ and found this lovely text:
You are not in control of everything. That’s right. Contrary to popular belief, you cannot control everything that goes on around you. The economy will crash, people will say and do things that make you upset, clients will come and go, your business will ebb and flow. And there’s not much you can do about it. Or is there?
One way to gain a bit of control back is to understand that things don’t happen to you, for you or against you. Things just happen. You are not here to control what happens. Your job is to control how you react to what happens. And the way you react determines how your life unfolds from that point on. Hence, control.
In other words, people and circumstances can show up (or throw up) in your life however they may, but you get to choose how it will affect you…or not.
The moment you begin to take control of your reactions you begin to take control of your reality. Now that’s some cool shift!
