I cannot control people who do not wish to be controlled – Self Talk Part 3

Much anger is the world is generated by people trying to control or change other people who do not wish to be controlled or changed. Rather than thinking in terms of “control,” think instead of other methods of changing and influencing others such as: persuading, educating, rewarding, enticing, compromising, being positive role model, advising, urging or convincing. Remember, people have free will and in most cases they have a tight to do things we consider wrong or stupid if they are willing to accept the consequences.
