I came across this quote and wanted to share it with you as it’s quite apropos to all of the learnings on my medical journey – it’s from Diamond Dallas Page.
“In our personal and professional lives, we are constantly hit with one adversity after the other, most of which we have no control. But the four things we have total control over is how we REACT, how we ADAPT, how we BREATHE and how we TAKE ACTION.”
So reflect upon this for a minute…
How do you react to adversity? What’s your automatic response?
How skilled are you at adapting to the new normals in your life and accepting change?
Do you focus on your breathing to stay centered in challenging moments?
What specific actions do you take? Or what do you not take?
It sounds real simple that there are four things you control but reality is these are quite difficult. This is why you need so many good people in your life to help remind you of what you can control along with some best approaches on how to make these happen!
Wishing you all of good day controlling what you can control. For the things you can’t control- maybe it’s time to “Let them go!” You can’t do anything about them anyway!
