WHEN I FOCUSED ON THIS, EVERYTHING FELL INTO PLACE

Zero in on your “Sphere of Control.”

That means focusing on things you actually have control over, like: 

  • Your actions
  • Your mindset
  • Your effort

… And letting go of everything else.

Here’s a graphic that shows how this sphere works:

When you focus on the things you control, you move FORWARD toward your goals.

A few health and fitness examples of your sphere of control:

  • Your workouts
  • The quality of the food you eat
  • Your performance and consistency

Plus, your efforts in your “things you can control” circle carry a bonus. They can power the “things you can influence” by helping you make gains there, too.

Some health/fitness-related examples in your sphere of influence:

  • Setting up your bedroom so it’s cool, dark, and quiet, to help you get a great night of sleep
  • Being consistent with your workouts and nutrition, to lose weight or get into shape
  • Keeping an up-to-date calendar (including time for workouts and self-care), to stop your schedule from getting out of control

There are also things you can’t control or influence, no matter how hard you try! To name a few: the weather, the passing of time, and your genetics. 

It’s much better to work WITH those things than drive yourself nuts trying to control them.

I do a quick scan of my “sphere of control” every few months. It helps me streamline my thinking so I can focus on the things that I can do to move me forward, faster.



What does it mean for you? What are your top 2-3 actions to put on “repeat” for the rest of the year? 

Let’s do this! 🙂 

Make it an amazing day,

7 “Bonuses” of Junk Foods

To be clear, when we’re talking about ultra-processed foods, we’re referring to manufactured foods or “food products.” They come in a package and usually are ready to eat, although sometimes you have to heat them up (like ramen soup, frozen dinners, or those “helper” boxed meals that you mix with
