Another day of our lives and maybe you are wondering what to do with it. Maybe you woke up with some doubts about getting out of bed and facing the day ahead but you have to. Maybe you are afraid of what lies ahead but you will have to face it anyway, so why not do so boldly. Many things lie ahead of your day waiting for you to embrace them and each outcome of the day depends on how you act towards them or how you react.
We wake up and are tired. Tired of the struggle and tired of being tired or any given routine. Life is a struggle, a routine and a journey . On any journey you will get tired or bored but being tired all the time is not good. You have to do something to change that. I think of life as a journey and a struggle but the thought that life is a journey always overrides the thought that life is a struggle. the thought that I want to do something, rather than have to do something, makes it more of a pleasure or at the very least, less of a chore.
On any long journey you do have to rest or relax along the way and you have to find some time to rest for a better journey. You have to take control of the journey and your time. If you are in the driver's seat and in control of the journey, you can get to where you want to be. You can do more of what you want to do along the way.
Whatever your doubts are, you have to wake up and take control of them or they take control of you and the outcome of what lies ahead. Whatever fears you may have, you also have to take control of them or they take control of you and your day. You may not necessarily be able to conquer the fear
but you can control any fear and take away some power that fear has over you. If you can do that, you take charge of your direction rather than being directed by fear. The absence or control of fear allows you to be more relaxed, more creative and more productive.
Take control of your debts and do not let your debts take control of you. When I say not to let your debts take control of you, I do understand that you may not be able to pay off all your debts and that you may be late with a number of payments but not to allow them to affect your state of mind or everything else. Many nations are in debt but they still prosper. That is one perspective about taking care of your debts. You will survive your debts and you can take care of them, if you can take control of them.
Take control of your emotions and do not let your emotions take control of you. We all share the same emotions, but some are more magnified than others. while others are more subdued. We all have the capacity to get angry but some people have simply learnt how to control their anger rather than be controlled by anger or frustration. Everyone has some positive emotions but not everyone has learnt to enhance them or use them to override negative situations.
Wake up and take control of your environment. You may not have as much control of your work environment but you have absolute control of your own environment. It is a reflection of you and a clean environment may also provide you with some clarity. At the very least you can make your bed before you leave home and know that you are coming back to a bed that is ready for you to lie in. It pays to take control of your environment
You do have more control than you think. There are some things that you may not be able to change but when it comes to you, your health, your finances and your environment, you have more control than you think. The power of control is yours and you just have to grab it to make a better day and ultimately a better life. Take control of your today.
