Control

To be a Champion you have to know what you can control and know what you can’t.

First you can’t control other people or the weather, but we do seem to try. You control yourself, your attitude, your response to adversity. Stop trying to control other people. A person that is a Champion is not a manipulator. We don’t try to control the outcome as a Champion. You work the process and do your best all the time and the results will take care of themselves. When you stop trying to control outside factors then you free up your mind to focus on being relentless. One of the main reasons that people are not unstoppable is that they are trying to focus on too much. When they attempt to focus on stuff they can’t control it takes away from their mental edge. Remind yourself when things are going bad that ‘somethings I can control, somethings I cannot.’ You will be so much freer mentally when you learn this principle. Take control of your attitude and response to adversity and see your life go to the next level. Are you controlling what you can control today?

Being Controlled

Did you know that when you allow someone else’s words or actions to upset you, you’re allowing them to control you?

When you say, “You make me so mad,” you’re really just admitting that their actions have power over you. As long as that person knows they can push your buttons, as long as you keep responding the same way, you are giving them exactly what they want. Sure, people have a right to say and do things that are upsetting, but we also have a right to not get offended. We have a right to overlook their actions. It’s an honor for a man to keep “aloof” from strife. In other words, we have to remove ourselves, either physically or emotionally, from strife and offense. It’s not easy, but we can choose to let it roll off of us like water off a duck’s back! Remember, you don’t need everyone to agree with you all the time. You don’t have to have the approval of others in order to be the best. Your job is to be the person God made you to be. Overlook offenses and let go of strife so you can live in peace and victory all the days of your life. Are you being controlled today?

Out of Control

People that try to mind your business don’t really have their lives under control, they want to have yours under control.

You have known people that focused all their attention on others problems. Not in a helpful way, but in an exposing and hurtful attitude. As long as they could keep the focus and spotlight on you and your mess then they remained hidden. They wanted to mind your business because their own life was a disaster. They had no control of their life, so they spent their time trying to control others. Don’t be upset with this person, understand that they are hurting. They have a burden on them that they can’t face. In time, you may just be the one to help them work out their situation. When you don’t reject them, don’t act ugly toward them, but love them; they possibility will ask you to help them. Take responsibility for your life and your decisions. By doing so you will be a model for those that haven’t done so yet. You can be the difference maker in their life. Is their someone seemingly trying to control your life today?
