There are moments in your life where you may feel like you are not sitting in the driver’s seat. It may seem to be that you are just cruising through your own life sitting in the backseat, with no hand in where it goes.

Whatever the situation, you can be and most certainly are the one with the power to control and navigate your own life. Whether you are recovering from a trauma, are looking to dig yourself out of stagnancy, or seek to put yourself on the path toward your long-term goals, this is all doable once you take back control of your life.

It will take time, effort, discomfort and a number of baby steps. However, starting small will undoubtedly take you toward the path you seek to be on in the long-term.


If you feel your life is out of your control, then it’s time to take a step back and assess your situation. Take a long hard look at where you are at right now and where you would like to be—once that is done, your plan of action must follow accordingly.

Determine Your Goals

Have any short-term or long-term goals? Create realistic goals for yourself, and then plan out how you will go about achieving them. The important thing is to take it step by step; don’t bite off more than you can chew!

Enhance Self-Care

Your mental and physical well-being plays a crucial role in the quality of life and how equipped you are to take control of it. Invest in a healthy diet, consistent physical activity and frequent breaks to de-stress from the rigors of daily life when need be.

Foster Healthy Relationships

Cut out the people from your life who are holding you back with their negativity—or at least aim to take a break from them. It’s important to establish and maintain relationships where the other person is supportive, understanding and a positive influence, particularly when it comes to attaining life goals.
