If you can manage yourself,
you can manage other people.
But if you cannot manage yourself,
what makes you think you can manage other people?

whether you can manage other people or not,
but you must learn to manage yourself.
Let us start here.

Change a little to gain a lot
"It makes no difference what you have done 
in the past. From this day on, you can,
if you choose, change a little to gain more."- Shad Helmstetter

Manage yourself first
"How you manage yourself, what you do,
how you act, each and every moment,
every word you speak, motion you make,
and action you take, or do not take, 
will determine how well anything in your life works for you."-
Shad Helmstetter

You Can Never Control Everything

Life is bigger than you. If you try to control everything, 
you are going to be frustrated. 

Peace, not worry.
Life, not worry.
Joy, not fear.

If you want to live a peaceful life, 
you must accept what is bigger than your power. 
You must accept what you cannot control.

Things will happen. Some will happen to you, 
others will happen to other people. 
People will hurt you. People will do things to you 
and you won't know why. That is okay. 

Do not go crazy about it. Instead of driving yourself crazy, 
why not use your time to love yourself? Why not? 
Is that too big to ask for? 

Control what you can control. 
Let go of what you cannot control. 
Trying to control everything 
is the beginning of failure. 
Because no one can do it, not even you.
