You have all the power you need!

The truth is the you're not powerless at all.

It's all too common for us to feel overwhelmed by the expectations we set for ourselves, and our fears around what others will think of us if we don't accomplish it all. All of these things can leave you feeling utterly powerless.

But the truth is that you are not powerless at all! In fact, you have all the power in reality, because you can control how you think and feel about everything. It's all about understanding the link between how you feel about things and your beliefs, attitudes and perceptions.

By carefully examining those three key areas, you can start to make positive changes and improve the way you feel immeasurably. For example, if you are trying to juggle work and childcare in the school holidays, you may feel overwhelmed and stressed by the demands on your time. You may see photos of other parents on social media that make it all look effortless and begin to feel guilty that your children are missing out. This is where you need to stop and rethink your beliefs and perceptions.

Nobody can control what other people think, do or say about them. But you can decide how you respond to situations and feel about them. Take pride in your ability to work and have a family. Make a choice to laugh when you don't get it right, learn when something goes wrong and celebrate small victories. Don't strive to find happiness, be happy and let that infiltrate all parts of your life. Taking this control back will elevate your mindset and help you live a much more fulfilled life.

If you'd like to start taking back control of your emotions, get in touch.
