We are often overwhelmed with our life’s progress, home life, kids, career, life’s never ending bumps. The good news according to Linda Cattelan is there are a few things that you can control in your life that will make a huge difference in both your personal and professional life.

  • What You Do – You are judged by your behaviors and actions. Control your behavior and be professional and the results will be forthcoming.
  • What You Say – It is a good practice to listen more, say less and think before you speak.
  • What You Think About and What You Believe – If you are not happy with your current situation or the direction you are headed, you can change your thoughts and thereby your beliefs.
  • How Well You do Your Job – If it is to be, it’s up to me” should be your motto. Take responsibility for your own future.
