Improving a Situation

If I really want to improve my situation, I can work on the only thing over which I have control – myself. – Stephen Covey
There are times we all get in a rut. I’m not talking about the single event that requires a single response. I’m talking about those ruts . . . a week of events, and responses, that seem to create pessimism and negativism.
You are the only one who can control the solution for you. Press pause – STOP – long enough to step back and assess what is required for the situation to change. Talk to respected and trusted friends, family members, and colleagues – stop the negative spiral of events.
Once you identify the problems in the situation, now it is time to step-up and act with purpose. It is up to you. There is no room to blame others or complain . . . take control and make a difference.
