Being in control is an illusion
This Post is based on a discussion in The Alchemy Experience Podcast:
“Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t” (Steve Maraboli, “Life, the Truth of Being Free”)We meander through life with an idea that we can control the outcomes of our experiences. Sometimes, things work out more or less the way we intended, but most of the time they don’t or we have an adverse side effect because of our need to control the outcome. One day you wake up and you realise that having control over anything outside of yourself is a fallacy, an illusion, created by society. As a matter of fact you realise you only control three things:
- Your thoughts
- Your words
- Your actions
