Take Control. Take it back, if you feel that way. take control back of the situation. In order to do that, you have to pay deep, deep, attention to your life. Often times, we tend to either get distracted or simply cease to pay attention to what is going on around us for a variety of reasons and that’s a sure cause of losing control. If you’re not paying deep attention to what your doing in your life and what is going on around you in your life, yes, you will feel out of control, because you can’t possibly hope to be in control because you’re not paying attention to what’s going on. In a talk I gave on Saturday, I talked about “I’m not asking you to make decisions willy-nilly — and just do them off the cuff. I want you to make carefully decided decisions.” When you’re faced with an issue I want you to stop — that can be hard when things are a little crazy, but there are times you just need to stop and say, draw it out if you have to, “What’s going on? What do I need to do? Where do I need to be?” — and then make the decision and act on it.
