Product Description

Who is that person in your life who seems to want to control you? Perhaps it’s a parent or sibling. Maybe it’s one of your friends. Maybe it’s even yourself! Why is it so easy to slip into controlling behavior? And how do we manage and change it productively? This lecture will give you more understanding about why we control externals, what control means, and how to recognize it accurately.

Controlling behaviors are based in fear and shame. Controlling behavior is a mechanism to cover things up—to compensate for how we feel internally. In reality, we control externals (people, things, etc.) in an attempt to control our own uncomfortable emotions. Fear is powerful, and control is so easy to slip into.

Surrender—the opposite of control—is a principle of power. It means surrendering the illusion that you can control outcomes, or anything else outside of yourself. Surrender is based in emotional honesty – the recognition of reality. As paradoxical as it seems, control begets weakness while surrender builds great strength. This course will give you specific techniques and steps to assist you in the process of surrendering your control and thereby deepen your connections to yourself, others, and God.
