One of the things we always talk about is concerning yourself only with the things you can control and let go of the things you can't. This doesn't mean you aren't aware of those other things around you. It just means you aren't ALLOWING them to affect you. If you can envision a movie screen showing Times Square New York City with a close-up of hundreds of thousands of people swirling around a single person. That single person is silent, calm, relaxed, composed. The crowd is a blur around them. They can be yelling, screaming, accusing, rushed, hurried, angry, sad, overjoyed, fist-bumping, hugging, kissing, stealing, etc, etc. Its a blur of colors and movements, but the single person just sits there. For many, being in the middle of this crowd would be uncomfortable because there are so many things happening, or so many chances of "this" or "that" happening to you. Tons of anxiousness. But it doesn't have to be. The blur of the crowd is nothing but the things you can't control so you need to be like the single person in the middle. They are there, they are present, they are calm, and more importantly, they aren't distracted by all the "stuff" around them and they are much more able and ready to respond. This same scenario can be in a workout or competition situation, a financial situation, a relationship situation, or even a diet situation. You want to do EVERYTHING YOU CAN to not give any care or concern or energy to the things that you can't do anything about. It doesn't matter if they go against your moral fiber or likes or dislikes. The world will go on and so will the people that are in it and you truly have control over one person, you. This is your power. You can be that zen-like single person standing in the blur of "stuff" but stay calm and readied to do the things YOU need to be able to do. Always be aware of the things around you but put your energy and concern in those things you can control. This is where you will win and survive!:)
