Just because you can influence doesn’t mean it will go your way.
Life’s biggest source of pain comes from trying to control the uncontrollable. So much stress comes from reality not matching our expectations. So much anger comes from resenting people for not doing what we want.
Understanding the difference between controlling events and influencing them is a foundational key to mental health. Embracing it and applying it is an opportunity for significant emotional breakthrough.
Discipline is the shortcut. Do the work.
