“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” Brian Tracy
We all want control of what happens to us, but we are also aware of the impossibility of such. Plus, even though we have the ability to control our attitude, we tend to cast blame on others in order to justify the circumstances experienced.
The focus of today’s thought is more than a glance at controlling what happens to us, or even developing the right kind of attitude. The thought is a great challenge to the mastery of our lives.
When we do an honest self-evaluation, what facts rise to the surface, especially when it comes to the “things” that control or master our lives?
No one enjoys examining these factors, but if we are to master change, we must discuss every area necessary for developing our Christian character as God would want from us.
The outcomes are worth the journey. Let us lead with such conviction.
