The words “control” and “controlling” get a bad rap.
Personally, I prefer to be in control and so should you.
Control is merely the byproduct of responsibility.
The more responsibility you take for an outcome, the more control you will have over that outcome.
Certainly we all have others whom we rely on or can credit for our success and we all can recall when someone else dropped the ball and/or did us wrong but… if you are willing to silently take ALL of the credit, and publicly take all the blame, you’ll have the right attitude necessary to regain and maintain complete control of your practice.
Responsibility = Control
