3 powerful ways to feel more in control

Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t. – Steve Maraboli.

Let’s face it: everyone wants to be in control, whatever the situation may be. Many of us live our lives (I guess it’s such a millennial thing?) as if they are the passengers in a car that’s totally out of control, speeding up, zigzagging through the highway and taking a spin. How do you get back in the driver’s seat and take control?

We outline 3 important steps for taking back control of any situation.

You are the solution – Whether this is a positive or negative situation: you’ve created it yourself. It’s because of your choices and your decisions that you are here now. So it’s all your fault? Well, no. Not exactly. Because you’re the solution too. You can change something. So, don’t wait and hope for tomorrow. Take back ownership of yourself (yes, this is much easier said than done), stop being a passive participant and make it happen. Acknowledge what has happened and find a solution that’s different from what you’ve done so far. The only way is up!

Set a goal – What would you like to change today? A lot of people don’t know exactly what they want in life. They don’t like their job, but they don’t know what to do if they quit. They’re stuck in a relationship that obviously doesn’t work. They struggle with friendships that are time-consuming and doesn’t pay off. But what do you want? That’s the million dollar question. A challenging job, a steady relationship and great friends? Life without goals is like flying a plane not knowing where you want to land. The purpose of life is to know where we want to go and then go there. Don’t worry about the details, they will get to you as soon as you move towards your goal.

Trust yourself – Every experience in life – good or bad – makes you grow. You will be wiser and emotionally stronger. Some days are just bad days. You have to experience sadness to know happiness, and I remind myself that not every day is going to be a good day, that’s just the way it is. And remember: give yourself credit for every step forward.

Let's talk


    The government compares two numbers – The cost of carrying the laid-off workers vs. the cost of giving the company a ‘tax break’ so they can stay open. The company takes the ‘tax break’ & cuts the price of the washing machines. This cut price is actually less then it costs to make the machine, but the ‘tax break’ makes-up the difference.

    Dumping usually involves both the manufacturing company & their government. Same company A makes washing machines. They are pumping-out product, but the sales are slow. They call the government & say they might have to lay-off employees if sales don’t pick-up.

    Right in your own back yard you have a reputabile store which most times doesn’t differ in price much from say B&H Photo, or Adorama. So, check out Beach Camera, on line.

    Chinese astrology stresses on the five elements, metal, wood, water, fire, and earth. They use the signs which are different from other astrological signs.

    If you have no property you can put up as collateral, your boyfriend needs to ask someone else to bail him out. If he doesn’t know anyone who both has property or cash, and wants to bail him out, he’s just going to have to sit in jail until a judge lets him out.

    If you do not have the cash to bail him out, the only possible way he could be bailed out is if you have property worth enough money for a bail bondsman to agree to take title to it as collateral in exchange for them putting up the bail to get your boyfriend out of jail.
