4. Stop Trying to Control Everything: Life is unpredictable, and no one knows what will happen at any time, and no one can make everything happen exactly the way they want all the time. Things tend to just happen and all we can really do is deal with them as best we can. The more we accept that we cannot control everything the greater the peace of mind we will have. Empowering yourself to positively cope with what life brings your way gives you the inner strengthen to get through it!
