There is nothing as potent to pave the way to success as being in control.
There is nothing so blocking to success than to insist on being in control.
To some being in control is an all positive thing; it enables you to define the path to follow forward and ensure the necessary decisions are being made and the focus is on relentless execution towards a goal. The bigger, the better.
To others being in control comes with such a daunting sense of responsibility that you would rather not have it and potentially not do anything at all for the sheer fear of what happens if or when something goes wrong.
Some loathe not being able to be in control and will walk away from a potential opportunity just for the lack of being able to be in control. Others loathe being controlled and not being in a position to challenge the course of action, i.e. exert control, and will refrain from putting themselves into that position.
And some just hate that excess talk about control can ultimately block every path to future success.
Because at the end of the day some sort of control is needed to achieve great success.
Because if there is one thing that remains certain, it is that great success does not arise from a completely lack of control.
