Leaders Control the Controllables

by | Aug 15, 2018 | 1 comment

None of us have control over things that are uncontrollable

There are many things in life that we cannot control, such as the weather, traffic, or other people’s actions. Yet, there are also many things that we can, such as our thoughts, emotions, reactions, and behaviors. By focusing on these controllable, we can improve our focus and become more likely to reach our goals.

Focus on what you can control and do it with a high level of excellence.

Focusing on the things you can control helps to develop a growth mindset. A growth mindset is the belief that your abilities can improve with intentional effort and consistent practice. This mindset helps to embrace challenges, learn from failures, and persist in the face of obstacles. With a growth mindset, we can set specific goals and raise our level of expectation, not only for ourselves, but for our teammates.

Only YOU can control your attitude, effort, focus, and leadership.

Don’t allow yourself to be beat by things you have no control over. It’s one of the most important lessons that we can learn in life. It’s far too easy to get caught up in negative thoughts and emotions, but it’s important to stay positive and keep moving forward. By doing this, we can maintain our sense of composure and resilience, even in the face of adversity. There is an extremely powerful distinction between focusing on what we can control and allowing things we cannot to determine our attitudes and behaviors. We have the ability to overcome any obstacle in pursuit of our goals. Remember, life can be unpredictable, but we have the power to make the most of every moment if we make the definite decision to do so.
