I like to keep a book in my car for those times I find myself early for things (which is often – I don’t do late!). I can sit in the peace and quiet and read a few pages. At the moment, I’m reading ‘The Rules of Life‘ by Richard Templar. He describes it as “a personal code for living a better, happier, more successful kind of life,” and I’m feeling pretty inspired!
One of my favourite ‘rules’ so far (and I haven’t read much of it yet!) is rule 17 – ‘Change what you can change, let go of the rest‘.
He’s absolutely right. Why waste time trying to change the unchangeable while life passes you by? It’s much better to dedicate that precious time trying to change the stuff you can – no matter how small – or big – that may be. If we can influence big things, or important people, then fab! But, if the only person you can influence is yourself, then at least you won’t waste time trying to make someone else listen. If you can change yourself, you’re guaranteed a result!
What changes can you make in your life, and what can you let go?
