I was on a flight recently that hit some major turbulence. Typically, I don’t get too nervous but this was unusually rough. Violent rocking, big dips, rattling, vibrations, and a lot of people making loud noises: “Whoah!”, “Jeez!”, “Ooooh!”, and some other words I can’t mention.

Finally, things settled down. I had whispered a quiet prayer but again reminded myself that I really can’t control this. I just need to trust the pilot and the crew.

I was reminded that there are certain things I can’t control.

I also remembered I can control three big things. In fact, I believe these three big things can control our lives and our personal leadership.

How we leverage and use these three things determines our outcomes, performance, and our personal influence.

If you look at the landscape of your life and don’t like what it is producing and what you are experiencing, it may be time to change these six key areas.
Remember, you have the power to change your life at any given moment. Never forget that.

“You must take personal responsibility. You cannot change the circumstances, the seasons, but you can change yourself.”
-Jim Rohn
