“Letting go” can be one of the hardest things for many of us to do – especially if you are the type of person that likes to maintain “control” in all areas of your life. The challenge with trying to control your daily activities is that all of us have those days that just don’t go the way “we had planned.” We all need to have a coping strategy to survive days like these.

Here are some words of advice that will help you not only survive but thrive:

 “Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”  – Ann Landers

Expect the unexpected, and anticipate that things may veer off course. By doing this, you may even learn something new that changes your direction for the positive.

“One if the hardest things in life to learn are which bridges to cross and which bridges to burn.”  – Oprah Winfrey

We can’t control what other people do. We can only control who we choose to trust. We can never guarantee a specific outcome. We can only do our best to align ourselves with people we believe to be dependable and competent.

“Control is never achieved when sought after directly. It is the surprising consequence of letting go.” – James Arthur Ray

Change your mindset immediately, and look at each “curve ball” as an opportunity. Every “unexpected challenge” that you tackle with a positive attitude will redirect your ability to control situations to a more positive experience for all. With all the challenges, and obstacles that we face – if handled in a positive way – we become stronger and more confident in responding to whatever life throws at us each day!
