Things you can control around you are countable within the parameters of a single digit.

It’s true, though. In a perfect world, you’re in charge of every action that affects your life. However, the reality is strikingly different. So what is your contingency plan when things are not mirroring that vision board you have built so passionately?
Quotes That Help Shift Your Mindset
Let me tell you mine. I follow a positive line of thought, body language, and action. The process is simple:
- Identify the problem
- Reflect on what you can contribute to change that
- Start with a healthy mental note
And for a healthy mental note, I have curated a read-list (like a playlist, but better) of quotes that resonate with the infinite number of things that can go haywire in a day!
