This is a Franklin Quest book, published by the makers of the Franklin Planners, giving key basics on how to successfully take control of your future.
A desire to be in charge of our lives is born in each of us; recent psychological studies show that a sense of being in control of ourselves and our circumstances is essential to our mental well-being.
But how do we really gain control of our lives? Too often such control seems to elude us -- we end up feeling helpless before outside forces and "circumstances beyond our control."
Gaining Control gives you practical tools to use in your personal search for control and fulfillment. In this book you'll learn:
*About the inherent power in the things you've written on your Belief Window, that set of governing principles and ideas that color and influence everything you do.
*How to read what's on your (or another person's) Belief Window, so that you can better understand why you act as you do.
*How to use a simple tool, The Control Model, to determine whether or not the things that are written on your Belief Window are true.
*How to use The Control Model to help you make better decisions and more accurately predict behavior and outcomes.
The principles given in Gaining Control will help you solve problems more effectively, make better personal or management decisions, and more successfully deal with difficult business or family relationships.
