The more we value things outside our control, the less control we have. – Epictetus
Life does not always go according to our wish, and we ought to accept it in all circumstances. It is essential to understand that the more we value things outside our control, the less control we tend to have upon things that are under our control.
Yes, there is an old adage as well that goes likewise. It is essential to understand that not each and everything in your life will happen according to your own wish.
There will be certain circumstances too that will go beyond your control, but you will have to manage all of it some way or the other.
The more we value things outside our control, the less is our control upon the things that we can still manage and make. Hence, when you get to know that, you should be able to decide your point of focus.
Know that not everything will happen as per your wish. You might have to face a lot of situations that would make you feel terrible, and you will probably try to find excuses to get out of it.
However, that’s when you should think of ways so that you can make your life go smoothly.
At times, we tend to bother too much about a lot of things that do not play much role in our lives, and surely, that’s the worst part! When we use too much of our brain upon those useless things, our focus tends to get lower upon other useful things.
Therefore, if you ever want to succeed in your life, you must be able to differentiate between the ‘good’ and the ‘bad’ and between the ‘right’ and the ‘wrong.’
It is crucial to understand that when you are having a great life ahead, you should try to focus upon implementing ways so that you can eventually increase your possibility of winning, instead of focusing upon the efforts and keep on nagging about things that could have happened.
You ought to let things go, at certain times, as that will decide whether you will be able to travel a long way, or would you be stopping right then and there.
