The Things You Can't Control

“No one can make you jealous, angry, vengeful, or greedy — unless you let him.”
— Napoleon Hill

There’s a lot of stuff in life that you have no direct control over. Let that stuff go. Don’t waste time stressing about anything you can’t control.

You can’t control:

  • Other people’s opinions
  • Other people’s feelings
  • Other people’s actions
  • The economy
  • The weather
  • Your past
  • The passage of time
  • Death

You can absolutely control:

  • What time you get out of bed
  • What time you go to bed
  • What you eat and drink
  • How often you exercise
  • The content you consume
  • Your attitude
  • Your words
  • Your happiness
  • Being grateful
