Take a moment to think about the weather. Everyone talks about it, but no one does anything about it. Why? Obviously because we can’t do anything about it. We can’t control the weather, but we can certainly control where we live. Hate the snow of the north? Move south. Don’t like the summer heat? Move to the coast.
In your online business if you simply focus on things you can control and stop wasting time on the things you cannot control, it will lead to you being more productive.
You cannot control time, but you can control what you do with your time.
You cannot control the customer service given to your customers by affiliate product owners, but you can control which products you promote (and thereby increase the odds of your customers getting great service.)
You cannot control the economy, but you can control how you earn and invest your money.
You cannot control what your competitors do, but you can control your own business and thus your own destiny.
You cannot always control what happens in life, but you can control how you react to what happens.
Getting what you want out of life is all about controlling what you can and using it to your own advantage.
You control your life. You control whether you’re doing the things you’re doing out of obligation or out of desire. You control your destiny.
Food for thought.
