If there is one thing I am the QUEEN of doing it is getting all fired up over making decisions. Blame it on my Vata dosha but I seriously stress out when having to make a decision. Luckily, I have figured out a way that allows me to be at peace with the choices I make regardless of how stressful it may seem.

Amidst the hustle and bustle of everyday life, it’s not only easy—but common—to get hung up on the small things. We get so caught up micromanaging our schedules and worrying about all of the facets of life that we’ll never have control over until we’re blue in the face and drowning in a toxic sea of stress.
Yet we seem to so easily forget that stress is an internal conversation that we create within ourselves. The truth is that we possess both the power and control to handle our stress productively. If we choose to do so, our stress can impact our lives in meaningful—rather than hindering—ways.
However, we often do not do this, and therefore find ourselves stuck. When this happens, where do we turn? Do we cope by adding another seven things to our to-do lists, or do we look within ourselves and channel the Spirit that has always existed within us? Our answer to this question can make all the difference. And, while some of us may be more spiritual than others, it is never too late to begin that journey to become one with the Spirit.
By living with a special consciousness of the Universe, we can begin to reclaim our lives. When we learn to stop and take a break from this crazy world for at least a few minutes each day in order to peer inside ourselves, we’ll learn to remain aware of a Higher Being and let that Spirit continually envelope our lives.
When we do so, we acknowledge that there is something out there much greater than us. We remember that we are not in this world alone, and that, ultimately, a bigger picture exists that is absolutely stunning. We’d be foolish not to take the time to admire its beauty on our own journeys.
Is it possible to dial down the control (“tame your inner freak”) while maintaining the high performance standards you’ve set for yourself…without losing power? YOU BET!!!
You might be a control freak if…
- you assume control of all situations
- you find yourself telling others what to do (“It’s my way or the highway”)
- you stress out at the impossibility of trying to accomplish perfection
- you try to control things you have no control over
- you hesitate delegating work or tasks to others, mainly because…
- you feel that nobody can do it as good as you can
So, what can you do to tame your inner control freak and remove a little stress from your life? For starters, acknowledge that you like to be in control, and yes, you are successful. You do have successful outcomes. You are probably even a top performer at your organization or company. But sometimes, these controlling tendencies can cause resentment within your peer group.
Next, work to acknowledge and be accepting of the fact that not everyone else may be as performance-oriented as you are. Are your peers hard workers? Absolutely. But different people measure success in different ways. For some, success at work comes from doing what they’re told and not rocking the boat. Others never want to be put in the position of managing others. This is OK!
According to Cheryl Cran, author of The Control Freak Revolution, “Some people mistakenly equate giving up control with giving up power, but you gain more power when you focus on what you can control,” she says. “Plus, you become resentful when you do everything, and it starts to affect your professional and personal success.”
Remember…giving up some control doesn’t mean you are giving up power. You are working smarter and channeling your energies into things you CAN control. This will lead to a more relaxed, less stressed you. And who doesn’t want that?
