As human beings, we worry a lot sometimes about things we can't control. There are things in this world that are beyond our grasp, things we have no direct strings to pull in order to alter the outcome. Once you get to know these things, you're free to stop worrying or beating yourself down because of them and start accepting reality and focus on the things you can change. Below are 5 things you can't control in life.
Depending on where you reside, your standards of living and access to education, health and opportunities drastically differ. You can't control where you are born so it's important to make the most out of what you have. If you feel like this place isn't enough, you can work hard and move to a better more advantageous location. Although you can't choose where you were born, you’re free to choose where you want to live.
2. Who Your Parents Are
The first few years of your upbringing are incredibly important because they set the core values someone keeps with them for the rest of their life. This one is tricky because you don't choose your parents, what you need to understand is that despite differences in approach almost all parents love their children and want them to be happy. This is biologically true. Just think of yourself as a parent, what are the chances that you would intentionally do something so that your child ends up unhappy and a failure? You’d need to be a psychopath. The sad part is most parents sabotage their children unwillingly by not allowing them to grow. They don't do this because they hate you but they do this because they don't know any better.
3. Your Past
If it happened, it’s already beyond your control. How many of you wish you had the power to go back in time just for a couple of minutes and fix a mistake that you've made? Well, you can't and you should stop living in the past. Accept it as it is and be a lot more strategic with your future because the few days you have ahead of you at one point will become your past. People get so caught up in their past that they don’t realize they're wasting their present and their future.
Some people are just born with a predisposition for certain things. Great for them, that's their advantage in life. if you were born with a particular talent it's up to you to find ways to maximize the impact you can have with it. Although you can't control if you are born with a good voice or not, you can definitely control how much time you put into perfecting that crap. Please remember; hard work beats talent when talent doesn't work hard enough
The last thing you can't control in life is your own death. We’re all scared of dying to some degree. People are so scared of dying that they forget to live. The best thing you can do is embrace it; how much life can you fit into a lifetime.
