There are certain things in life you have no control over and you can’t do anything about those things, but you can act along it. For example, you have no control over rain but you can choose to have an umbrella to go out when it’s raining.
However, there are certain things you ought to have control over, else your life will go the wrong path. Life is a journey and there are certain things you need to have control over in this journey, else the endpoint will be catastrophic.
1. YOUR ANGER/EMOTIONS
People have lost their lives because of anger, people have lost properties and made some very bad decisions that affected their entire life because of anger. You ought to be in control of your emotions and push anger away. Choose to be happy and you will be happy.
2. YOUR WORDS
Don’t talk carelessly, don’t talk without thinking. A wise person thinks before talking while a foolish person talks before thinking; are you a wise or foolish person?
Choose your words carefully and be in control of what you say. So many people have entered troubles and lost assets, relationships and good friendship because they couldn’t control their mouth.
3. THE PEOPLE YOU ASSOCIATE YOURSELF WITH
Associate yourself with people who will lift you up and not bring you down. Whether you like this or not, the people you associate yourself with positively or negatively affects your life.
4. YOUR HABITS
Be in control of your habits; don’t let negative habits become a part of your life. Consciously make that effort to choose the right habits and let go of habits that aren’t right.
5. THE INFORMATION YOU FEED YOUR MIND WITH
Information is power and your mind is the control room. The information you feed your mind with has the power to either bring you down or lift you up. Take control of what you feed your mind with, because they have the power to lift you or destroy you.
6. YOUR THOUGHTS
It’s imperative you feed your mind with the right information because those information become thoughts and from thoughts they become action. If you watch a pornographic movie, you’d want to have sex. If you read a book on success, you’d want to be successful. The choice is yours to make.
Do you have control? Or are you being controlled? The choice indeed is yours to make.
