“Letting go” can be one of the hardest things for many of us especially for those of us who like to “control” our daily activities both personally and professionally. However, all of us have those days that do not go the way “we” planned and need to have a coping strategy to survive. Take a look at these wise words of advice that will help you “let go” and 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 consider every “curveball” that this day might throw at you as an opportunity. Every unexpected challenge that you meet head on with a positive attitude will create a more positive experience for all involved AND make you more confident to face whatever life has in store each day!
