Have you ever felt like your very best efforts in life get derailed each and every time?  Have you ever wondered why the harder you try, the faster life seems to throw curves your way?  Maybe have been trying so hard for so long and you’ve simply worn yourself out.  Exhausted and discouraged, you want to quit because try as you might to control the outcomes in your life, things just don’t want to go the way you’ve planned.


Four times I’ve traveled to San Francisco to bike the Golden Gate Bridge, but I’ve only actually completed the ride twice. Circumstances beyond my control got in the way for half of my attempts.

There are some things you just can’t control, but there are a few crucial things that are totally within your control. Your use of them can greatly effect your life story.

In today’s podcast you will discover simple yet impactful ways in which you can take control of your life so that you can walk forward confidently.

While you can’t control everything that happens to you, you CAN control how you respond to everything that happens to you.  You will gain more ground by focusing your attentions on how you receive, process, and react to each and everything that comes your way.

At the end of the day, you do the best you can and then life is gonna do what life is gonna do.  Many of us get so discouraged by the typical ebbs and flows of life and our lack of control in them that we  simply quit trying all together.  Today I want to remind you that your effort does matter and that it can change the way you see your life unfold before you.
