Control what is it and what can we do with it

Posted: June 18, 2014 in Uncategorized

Let’s see control is the ability to make someone or something do what you want them to do. Pretty simple right? Well i like to think of myself as a simple guy. No seriously I try very hard not to over think a lot of things.  I am a firm subscriber to Ocams Razor.   “We are to admit no more causes of natural things than such as are both true and sufficient to explain their appearances. Therefore, to the same natural effects we must, so far as possible, assign the same causes.” Issac Newton

I am a simple guy.

Usually the most simple explanation is the truth. So back to our question again what is it? Well, we answered that already and what can we do with it? Hmm we can do a lot with control. Nations are built, order maintained art created, armies lead, cities built. Control is a powerful thing. But control of others is fleeting. Yes fleeting. When we exercise control of others we are experiencing a fleeting  power. Usually as soon as the person animal or situation we are controlling gains what they wanted from the situation in which we we exercising control on, we loose that control. You know the whole, “what’s in it for me” ideology?

The one thing that we can control, isn’t fleeting and we should always control is ourselves.

The only control we have is over ourselves and if we do not exercise control over ourselves we will more than likely be controlled by someone else. The world is full of moments and situations we cannot control so why not do our best to control ourselves?
