28. Start concentrating on what you can control
One thing that we can always control in our life is input but not the outcomes. So, there is no point in wasting our time and energy on things that are beyond our control.
By investing more time in things that can make a difference, we can get rid of fear, anxiety, feeling of helplessness and passive action. By planning how to influence an outcome, you can foster a deep self-trust and inner peace.
29. Start focusing on opportunities
Listen to your intuition and do not pay heed to negative thoughts. Jeff Bezos never focused on why his online bookstore ideas will fail. Similarly, Mark Zuckerberg never focused on why Facebook will not work on a global scale. These people never changed their thinking in line with people who criticized their ideas. Instead, they focused on the possibility of positive outcomes.
Start focusing on what you want and not what things that are impossible. Everyone’s life has ups and downs! It depends on you to choose aspects that make you happy and successful in the long run.
30. Start noticing how wealthy you are right now
“That man is richest whose pleasures are cheapest.” Henry David Thoreau
Be grateful to things that you are blessed with right now. You have caring and loving parents, good health, access to modern technology, money to travel places, the choice to eat good food, wear branded clothes, friends you can count on even when times are tough and the list goes on.

But, we often take these things for granted! On the other hand, there are people working day and night just for basic amenities like food to live. We cry for things that we don’t or can’t have. While you are chasing money, ignoring health and family, a cancer patient may see health as wealth. Count your blessings! Start thinking of things that make a good life and you will find those things coming your way.
