YYou know that thing where you’re trying to act all casual and cool, but secretly you want to micromanage the hell outta an event you’re hosting, a project you’re working on, your kid, your spouse, your boss, etc.? Guess what, my friend? You’re dealing with some control issues. And, listen, the reason I know a thing or two about this shiz is because I’ve battled this little beast for nearly 40 years. So, I feel you. But, sweet baby Jesus, there is hope. Trust.

The thing about “control” is that sometimes it actually DOES contribute to your happiness. Sometimes it really DOES make things easier, more efficient, and timely and in turn, leaves you feeling powerful and fulfilled. Like, Ninja-Warrior-style. And then there are the other times. The times when trying to control a situation (or person) create massive anxiety, overwhelm, and bitterness.

Have a listen to this episode where I discuss seven steps to figuring out the most powerful role Control can play in your world. It’s time to stop trying to control the ex, your mom, or your home. No more angst and frustration. Say hello to surrender and a shit-ton of freedom.

This pod explores:

  • How to distinguish when controlling a sitch is an awesome idea and when you need to back-the-fuck-off
  • The secret role Fear plays in the need to control + how to operate from courage instead
  • How to let go of the “rules” you’ve unknowingly created so you can feel waaaay more freedom
  • The best thing you can do instead of trying to control shit out of your control
