Control vs Influence
What are you really In control of?
There is a huge difference between what we can control and what we can influence.
Many of us seek control in places that we have none so when we realize we don’t have as much as we thought, we try to over control other areas.
This is why kids who learn how to speak or go to the bathroom stop telling adults or talking to them because it’s the one thing they can control in their life.
There’s very few things we actually have full control of but there are SO many things in life that we have the power to INFLUENCE
This was a huge part of the workshop this week in my 8 week post-show personal development program.
After a show, competitors tend to feel lost, out of control, or like they have no more direction.
So then we start trying to find our next show, do a mini cut, restrict or earn things rather than just being comfortable with what our new path requires...
I challenge you to consider things in your life that you try to control but really can only influence.
You may be surprised 😉
here’s an example; you can influence how much fat you lose or gain but you can’t completely control where it is lost or gained.
