2. Loosen the reins
Do you like to be in control of your life? I used to have a real problem with that because I just could not loosen up in life. I had to have everything just the way I planned; I had to be No.1 all the time (your typical description of an over-achiever.)
The trick about life that I’ve learned is that we are never in full control of our lives. While we can try our best to be the best we can be, sometimes things just happen. They just do.
I do not have to be No. 1 anymore.
I do not have to leap over hurdles to be happy and content.
