The Power of the Law of Control
« on: July 27, 2012, 05:33:29 AM »
The Power of the Law of Control

The first law that I discovered was the Law of Control. This law says that, “You
feel happy to the degree to which you feel you are in control of your own life. You
feel unhappy to the degree to which you feel you are not in control of your own
life.”

Modern psychology calls this “Locus of Control Theory.” Psychologists
differentiate between an internal locus of control and an external locus of control.
Your locus of control is where you feel the control exists in each area of your life.
This location determines your happiness or unhappiness more than any other
factor.

For example, if you feel that you are the primary creative force in your own life,
that you make your own decisions, and that everything that happens to you is a
result of yourself and your own behaviors, you have a solid internal locus of
control. As a result, you will feel strong, confident and happy. You will think with
greater clarity and perform at higher levels than the average person.

On the other hand, if you feel that your life is controlled by other factors or people,
by your job, your boss, your childhood experiences, your bills, your health, your
family or anything else, you will have an external locus of control. You will feel
like a victim. You will feel like a pawn in the hands of fate.

You will soon develop what Dr. Martin Seligman of the University of Pennsylvania calls “learned helplessness.” You will feel helpless and unable to change or improve your
situation. You will soon develop the habit of blaming others and making excuses for your problems. This type of thinking leads inevitably to anger, frustration and failure. We will talk more about this later in this chapter.
