It's simple. There is one thing that is the root of most issues that we experience in life and in our work whether that's working for an employer or running our own business. That one thing? Control. Or rather perceived control. That's control over our life, over our work, over our environment and more.
Chances are, if you are feeling low working on your business, or if you are desperate to leave your job because you feel so unhappy going to work every day, that you are likely to be feeling that you don't have control, in one way or another. The worst cases demonstrate that people feel like they have no control over any aspect of their life.
What happens when there is this sense of no control? We may get depressed, possibly clinically depressed, maybe we'll find decision-making difficult, possibly we'll be experiencing stress, illness or keep having accidents, large or small. This is our mind and our body reacting to the perceived lack of control.
Is there anything you can do if you become aware that control is an issue for you? Yes, definitely. The first thing is to check in with where the control issues are greatest for you. This could be at work, at home, in relation to your family
