Locus of Control is a key ingredient in both stress hardiness and mental resilience.
Knowing the difference between what is within your control and sphere of influence and what to let go of and surrender is a daily process and wellness habit.
What is within your control?
This was a question I actively explored over 2 days with 600 high school students in Windsor, Ontario during my thriving under pressure presentation.
Make a list of things that are beyond your control. Areas of your life that drain your energy, motivation, and passion for life.
Next, make a list of moments and situations that lift you up. Areas where you create impact. Focus on those areas of your life today. Surrender the rest.
You Can’t Add More to Your Life Without First Letting Go
