While we can’t control all the things around us, we can control what we think – and that changes the lens by which we experience our lives and our business success.
As I’ve been working through my personal development journey, I began to notice that I was spending a lot of energy fighting things I can’t change. If something happened that I didn’t like… or if I did something I wish I hadn’t… or if there was something I didn’t do that I wished I had… or a multitude of other things… I’d stew on it, or run it over and over in my mind, nursing it or cursing it. It was negative energy that did nothing positive for my business, or my life.
And then one day the thought just came into my mind, “Oh well!” And then I started putting my attention on what I could do. I started putting my energy on what I did want to create. And I stopped fighting what I had done, and just took the learning from it and moved forward.
That, “Oh well!” has become a very important part of my spiritual and emotional tool chest and has opened up the flow of energy in my business.
When you come upon something you really can’t change right now, just say, “Oh well!” and then put your energy on what you can do something about. What would you love to do with what you can do something about?
The Alcoholics Anonymous movement created a very powerful prayer that can help all of us in our business:
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
So put “Oh Well” in your toolkit, and when something happens you can’t do anything about, just say “Oh Well… What can I do something about?”
When you put your efforts and your energy into your business in a positive way, you won’t be able to help but see the positive results!
