Stress and its teammates worry; doubt; fear; anxiety can wreak havoc on our minds and bodies. Have you ever noticed how contagious these are in any environment be it at home, work, or on an athletic team?
Most stress comes from arguing with our reality and or focusing on things and people that are outside of our control.
Can we agree that you cannot change the past or control the future (unless of course you have a Delorean with a flux-capacitor and a mechanic/scientist named Doc), others’ behaviours, weather etc.?
Besides, when has worry ever changed an outcome or improved a result?
When we continue to focus on what is outside of our control we lose power; momentum; and our ability to be resourceful diminishes.
Use this game changing strategy to help train your brain to let go of what is out of your control and focus on what is.
The excellent side effect of using this strategy with consistency is that it frees up precious mental real estate to focus on what matters and is in your control. It also puts you back in the driver’s seat of your life; so you can take action; and find solutions. Increased productivity and performance be it at home, work, or at sport will improve dramatically. What you focus on grows.
Choose to consistently focus on what is in your control or circle of influence and let go of what is not.
