For those who have followed my blog, you know I went through a major career change this year. I have learned so many new things this year I can’t even qualify it all at this point. Some of the lessons I have learned have been more prominent and useful than others.
Focus on the things you can control.
This is applicable in every area of your life.
For me, I focus on the aspects of what I can control. Prospecting, following up with prospects and current clients and learning as much as I can every day about the myrid of products at my disposal. Multi-tasking and focusing on the critical activities that need to be done to suceed are important, but you must continue to not get hung up on the stuff you can’t control.
As today is Thanksgiving, a day I have been looking forward to for a long time for many reasons. My oldest son is sick and so I am staying home with him instead of going to the family Thanksgiving. I am disappointed but not upset, as this falls into a category of stuff I cannot control. So you just make the best of it and try and enjoy the day the best you can.
Your attitude about work, your career, your life, your family is your attitude. The only person who can change it and control it is you. So why not be enthusiastic and happy? This is controlable! Focus on those aspects you can control.
Go through everything in your life and determine what you can directly control and that which you can’t. Focus on what you can control. Let go of what you can’t. Don’t focus on the stuff you can’t control. Don’t let it get you down or put you in a bad mood.
Happy Thanksgiving my loyal and wonderful fans.
