The only thing we can control

There's only one thing we can control in life.

Yesterday, I gave a talk in one of the many coworking spaces here in Lisbon. One of the questions I was asked at the end of my talk, was what hasn't worked for me.

My answer: A LOT!

In fact, if I were to make a list of all that has not worked, I’d never get to the end.

I love setting goals. I love the process of looking into the future and imagining the next chapter of my journey.

But the truth is, I have no idea what actually is going to happen. I have zero control over the matter.

The only control I really have is choosing my perspective. In every moment, as long as I remain conscious and aware, I can choose to pick the len through which to view the world.

Choosing to see the glass half-full, and I’ll experience challenges as opportunities, lessons, chance to grow. Choosing to see the glass half-empty, and I’ll experience challenges as pitfalls.

Glass half-full or glass half-empty. That's the only thing we can control in life.
