What can you control?

What can you control?

The Powerful Paragraph

There are certain things in life that we simply cannot control. A difficult manager, a troubling diagnosis, hitting every red light on your way into work. However, there is almost always something you can control within each of these situations. While it may be cliche, your attitude is certainly one of those things and is often a good place to start. However, there may be other opportunities to make the best of the situation, like finding a job that better suits your needs, starting a fundraiser for a friend in need, or celebrating every time the light turns green to turn your mood around. There is always some way to control the narrative and turn toward our optimism.
