One thing that all the humans have in common is that we want to control everything. We want everything to work as we want it to be. We put all our energy into trying to take control over everything and get frustrated when this does not happen. A lot of energy is wasted on things that we cannot control. This brings a lot of negativity and despair in one’s life. This sadness is obvious because nobody likes failure and even after all those attempts you cannot control everything as per your wishes.
The best way to save yourself from this sadness of not being able to control everything is to focus your energy on creating things for a happy world. As Roy T. Bennett says:
“Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.”
Accept That You Cannot Control Everything
A wise person accepts the fact that he or she cannot control everything in their lives. Let’s face it, most of the things in life are uncertain. Ironically, life in itself does not have a guarantee. You can live for more than you expect or die earlier than you ever thought. We understand that there are people who want to control every aspect of their lives and put a lot of thought and energy in doing so. They get frustrated when they cannot control aspects of their lives, and things do not go according to their liking. This is just a waste of energy. For a happy life, it is important to note that you need to let go. Let the life take control of it. You need to realize that there are certain things that you cannot control and no matter how much you try, you will not succeed. Once you accept this fact, you will realize that life is much more fun to live and you will have much more time to have fun.
You Can Create More Than You Think
Every person has been given the gift of creating something. When you realize and accept that you cannot control everything in your life, your energy automatically bends towards creating something. We all have been given one life, and we must make it worth the time. You can create anything big or small. Every person has one or the other talent. Use this talent to channel your creative energy and be of some use to the world. Instead of wanting to control everything, let go. Let your thoughts flow and create a happy world for the people to live. No matter how big or small, contribute to the world and your happiness. You can create a happy world for yourself and the others.
In the end, I would like to say that, yes there are many aspects of your and other people’s lives that you cannot control. But what you can control is your happiness and creativity. You are the shaper of your life. So use your creativity and build something worth remembering. You can create something that makes you and the people of the world happy.
