In your career or business, there’s only so much you can control. Once you’ve done what you could, you need to be composed and let things take their course.
Understanding your locus of control is being able to separate what you can control (or strongly influence) form what you can’t. Don’t try to control what you can’t because you’ll always be frustrated.
As much as you wish, you can’t control everything that happens to you. It’s a fundamental aspect of life that you can’t change, no matter how much you might want to.
“The better you’re able to separate what you can control from what you can’t, the happier and more productive you’ll be. Focus most of your energy on things that you can influence, and let everything else go. Keep your Attention on what you’re doing to build the life you want to live, and it’s only a matter of time before you get there.”
