Instead of telling yourself that there’s nothing you can do. Or wondering why these things always happen to you. Or being upset because you feel powerless.
Every thought you have is a work order to your brain. How can I take some control here? How can I make this work for me? Your #1 personal assistant — your brain — will immediately go to work for you when you pose this job to it. It has no choice but to do what you tell it, and this question puts it to work to deliver.
You’re paying a premium salary to your assistant, start using it the right way.
