You’re always in control of your thoughts, your actions, your behaviour, your emotions, your habits, your goals and your happiness.
There’s always an external factor in play, an external factor – at times bigger than you and your life.
Can you let it influence you or your thoughts or your emotions?
Once you set the baseline, that I’m the one in control of my thoughts, then no external factor can influence your thought process.
That same logic is then applied to your emotions, your habits, more importantly, to your happiness as well.
How do you be in control?
With practice. Understanding the difference when you are in control and when you are not.
Understanding the factors that bring the change in you.
Pushing yourself everytime you notice that change.
That requires self-awareness as well as the will power that you do want to do so.
The power to bring change comes from within.
It’s always up to you, and remember that you’re always in control.
