We can’t control what we can’t control

There are many things we can control; when to wake up, when to decide to look for a new job, when to hit the gym, how to cut our hair. However we seemingly worry about things we have no control over; will I get the job offer, or in sports such as CrossFit the times of others in a workout or strokes of your “opposition” in a golf game.

Worrying about things others control, such as how someone else is playing golf serves you no good. It might motivate you, and that would be good but typically we turn this into concern, worry and stress. You don’t control the output of others, nothing you do in a golf game, crossfit competition or pretty much anything else in life will make a material impact on the output of others. So stop worrying about others can do and start putting that energy into what YOU can do.

You can only control what you can control.

Random Paul Quote for July 8th, 2011

Honesty must start with yourself; if you aren’t honest with yourself how can you begin to be honest with others?

When you find yourself trying to convince yourself of something, take a step back and ask yourself if you are being honest and true to yourself. The answer will likely surprise you.
