Understanding the concept of the sphere of control can help you learn to identify which things are truly within your control and learn to accept which things you have no control over.

Things I can’t control
Very helpful to learn most things are out of my control so why stress about them. I must learn to appreciate this and let the thoughts go especially other people’s thoughts as I have no control over them.

Control
I learned that I either have complete control, influence, or no control. Once I determine the sphere I’m in, act accordingly.
