Sometimes we put our power out there in the hands of someone else, then sit and expect that our wellbeing will be sorted out if this person does what I think I need them to do.
This way we become weak and dependent.
Those who let their success depend on something or someone they cannot control, assuming that they have power over what others are thinking and believing, will always be dissapointed.
Those who become successful in the long run, know very well the distinction between what is mine and what is not mine, what they can control and what they can’t. They rely on what is within their power, they expect the solution from that which is in the hands of others or in the hands God.
If I make a clear distinction between mine – not mine, I will save a lot of energy. I wouldn’t waste even one drop of my power on something which is completely out of my control.
But how many of us still try changing the mind of somebody, forcing somebody to give us attention, love or undersanding? They sometimes just assume that they know what the other wants and needs.
This attitude mostly leads to disappoitment and failure, because the power leaks away the moment you put your wellbeing in the hands of the uncontrollable.
How much energy do you waste focusing on others, losing you strength becoming weaker every day?
Would such a high-perfomer as Ceasar or Napoleon achieve what they achieved if they had wasted their energy, attention and time on uncontrollable?
