Lecture description

According to the "Circles of Control, Influence and Concern" model, if we cannot control something, don't get upset about it, and if we cannot control something, don't focus on it or get upset about it. Healthy perspectives involve focusing on what we can change, not on what we cannot. Our lives will remain disempowered as long as we are swayed by things outside of our control. In this video, Kain discusses the circles of concern and control - and just see how they might be relevant to your life!
