We’re into the final lap of 2023, and it’s time to set our sights squarely upon the finish line. If you want to cross over into 2024 with a tangible sense of achievement, there’s one crucial strategy: laser-focus on your “Sphere of Control”.
Understanding Your Sphere of Control
Your Sphere of Control comprises those aspects of your life that you can directly manipulate and change. These crucial components fall into three broad categories:
- Your actions
- Your mindset
- Your effort
To illustrate, consider the following graphic that visually encapsulates this concept:
The Power of Concentration
By channeling your energy into the things you control, you inevitably move FORWARD towards your goals. Let’s delve into some examples within the realm of health and fitness:
- Your workouts
- The quality of the food you eat
- Your performance and consistency
Extending Your Influence
An exciting aspect of the Sphere of Control is its ripple effect on your “Sphere of Influence”. Your dedicated efforts can generate significant benefits in areas you can affect but not directly control. Here are a few examples of influential areas in health and fitness:
- Creating a conducive sleep environment
- Consistent workouts and nutrition plans for weight loss or fitness
- Maintaining an up-to-date calendar, including workout and self-care slots
Accepting the Uncontrollable
There are certain elements in life that are beyond our control or influence. These include things like the weather and time’s passing. It’s healthier to accept these factors and work with them rather than futilely attempting to control them.
The Value of Routine Audits
Regular audits to harness your ‘Sphere of Control’ are instrumental in decluttering your thought processes and accelerating your progress towards your goals. I typically perform this introspective exercise every few months.
