´ Control Freak -
September 11, 2015

Central to the fear of losing control is the deeper seated fear that we can’t deal with unpredictable situations. No matter how hard we try we can’t control everything. But we can work on building the kind of resources that help us deal with unexpected situations:

  • physical stamina
  • tolerance of discomfort
  • eating and sleeping enough
  • emotional intelligence
  • strong relationships
  • financial cushions

As you build these resources the need for control can be safely reduced because you know you will be able to deal with lots of things coming your way.
