Focusing on Variables outside control is Stealing Time from Actions

If we allow ourselves to focus on variables outside of our control, we take the focus from things we can change. Let me repeat. When you think about things outside of your control, you take resources away from things that can make your life better.

You have a finite amount of time and if you focus on that you cannot change, you steal time away from actions that bring change to your life.

IF: you focus on what you cannot change
  THEN: you steal time away, from actions that bring change.
