Focus Only On What You Can Control
As you read this blog’s issue, I’d like you to be mindful to keep your personal and business life in perspective when you faced with obstacles you cannot control. Adverse situations can influence the way you think, react and relate to the world. Moreover, a lack of focus can affect your own happiness. Don’t get stuck in overthinking and analyzing. It is incredibly unproductive and will impede your growth potential.
Similarly, self-doubt can get you stuck in your online business, and make you procrastinate. If you think you cannot make it, sadly, this becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. Creative thinking, strong focus, and guidance from a successful mentor can make you less susceptible to negative thinking and more resilient to adversity. We are all allotted twenty-four hours in one day; what you do with your time is up to you. Life often presents the challenges of competing demands; deadline pressures often make us wish we that we had more time. The ability to control time is not within anyone’s power, but what we do with our time unquestionably is. You cannot control the customer service given to your customers by affiliate product owners, but you can control which products to promote and, thus, increase the odds of customers receiving superb service. You can control how you earn and invest money, but you cannot control the economy. What your competitors do is beyond your control, but you can control your own business and your own destiny.
Life offers unexpected bumps and turns along the path. Some of your experiences will be exhilarating, refreshing and inspiring. However, how do you mentally prepare yourself to face the challenges of inadequacy and adversity? There are no easy answers, but you can choose to react to what is happening around you and learn from the mistakes of the past. Let experience be your guide. When a situation does not appear to be working well, do things differently. You will not experience different results with proven ineffective methods.
Success and fulfillment require self-discipline. The driving force behind your actions could be desire or obligation; nonetheless, you control your destiny.
When you become less reactive and more proactive in your approach to life, you become less stressful, and life will take on a deeper meaning. Consequently, you will experience a healthier, rewarding and more fulfilling life.
