Question: Can you control the situation in front of you?
If your answer is yes, do everything in your power to exercise your control and make the situation as comfortable as possible.
If your answer is no, accept reality and don’t give the situation the power to rob you of your peace of mind.
The control myth will have us believe that we’re in charge of something from start to finish. In reality though, we never really have complete control over anything. And with most situations, all we can control is the effort we make. Results are not our responsibility.
