Direct control, indirect control and no control refer to situations and concerns that are all in our circle of influence. Those things we have direct control over can be positively influenced by us changing our habits. Those things that come under the category of indirect control are matters revolving around other people’s behavior. These matters are positively resolvable if we are willing to change our methods of influence. The stuff that we don’t have any control over can be managed in a more positive way by simply changing the way we look at things.
