The opposite of control is surrendering to circumstances.
Everything around you seems to be spinning out of control. It’s probably time to surrender to circumstances.
It’s important to realize when you are not in control. Weather, a medical emergency, an accident – and surrender to the fact that life often happens by chance.
Your job isn’t to be in control every minute, but to deal with the outcome of the situations. In other words, surrender and let others drive. Allow someone with far greater skills to take the wheel while you work in a support role.
