Only one

Most things in your life are out of your control, but that never stops you from trying to control everything. You want to control the outcome of your actions, you want to control the unexpected, and you want to control what people think and say about you.

A lot of your energy goes into finding solutions to problems that already played out. There is nothing that you can fix in the past, even if you find the best solution.

When will you learn that events play out the way they play out? You had a chance at them, but it didn’t go as you expected. Now you have to see what can be done with what turned up. This moment, the one you are in, is the only place where you can do something to improve things.

What was done until now is already out of your reach. The only person who can do something about your situation is looking at you in the mirror every morning. Everybody else will think and act as they see fit, regardless of your wishes.

When something happens that pushes you out of balance, try to keep calm. It’s the best thing you can do. Don’t take the energy of the situation because it will make things more difficult. You are at your best when you are calm and your mind is clear. That is when you’re able to come up with the best solutions.

So, try to be calm even when you’re in a storm because you’ll be able to see clearly what needs to be done. And when the pressure is rising, being able to do something that improves things is priceless.

What other choice do you have than to make the best of what you have in your life? Of course, you can always complain that life is unfair and that things don’t go as planned, but that will do you no good.

All that happened until now is behind you, and it can’t be changed, but in front of you, there are infinite options. Some are good, and some are bad, some are easy, and some are hard, but it’s up to you to find the best option, using what you have.

Different people will have different results because they have reasons that you don’t have. That’s why you need to evaluate your results by comparing them to when you started. Your evaluation is the only evaluation you need. If you are a better person than you were yesterday, it means that you made good choices.

The infinite options in front of you are not all meant to be lived. All, but one of them, will disappear every time you make a choice. And with every choice a new infinity of options become available. Most of your life is lived inside your mind, but real living takes place outside of your mind.

Your mind is meant to show you what you choose to see in the world, but sometimes what you want to see is not real, so, it shows you lies. You are the one deciding what is real in your life, and every one of your decisions changes the future. As scary as this is, it is also the fun side of life.
