Subdue your desire to control

The difference between controlling events and influencing them contains a significant mental and experiential breakthrough.

The source of a significant amount of life's most immense stress and pain comes from trying to control the uncontrollable, then resenting it for not doing what we want the way we want it.

Therefore a significant reduction in stress and pain, and a corresponding increase in joy and fulfillment, is available simply by recognizing what you control, what you only influence, and building your life around these realities.

Answer the call. Do the work.
