The Key To Having Total Self Control

“Mindset. It’s all about mindset. From the moment you wake up, to the moment you rest your head at night. Everything is up to you. Your emotions, your thoughts, your perceptions, your reactions. Every moment.”

-Michael Bliss

In today’s quote Canadian historian Michael Bliss essentially says that the key to having total self-control is all about mindset. It is us and only us that can control ourselves and our actions. This occurs every moment we are a part of. This way of thinking leads towards developing an unstoppable level of self confidence. With our mindset we are in the driver’s seat of our own lives. We must be aware that how we interpret what others say and do to us will either lead us down a path of total self awareness or one that will keep us in a certain fog so to speak. When it is all said and done, the bottom line is we are responsible for making things happen as nothing in life is a guarantee especially when if you decide to sit on the sidelines of your own life.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards managing yourself better?
