Strike a balance between internal and external locus of control
- ** Reflect on your beliefs about what you can and can't control.**
Take a moment to think about the beliefs that shape your locus of control. Consider the impact of your childhood and life experiences. Write your reflections in your journal.
- ** Acknowledge your fears.**
When you find yourself trying to control something that is outside of your control, ask yourself, “Why am I trying to control this specific thing?" "What am I so afraid of?” Recognize your fears and understand how they influence your behavior in trying to control everything.
- ** Concentrate on what you can control.**
When faced with challenges, always focus on what you can control, remembering that sometimes the only thing you can control is your behavior and attitude.
- ** Stop worrying about what you can’t control.**
Realize that you can’t control other people, and you can’t ever have complete control over the end result.
