On a personal reflection. I found occasionally I drifted on the ‘what if’ rather than recognizing what if is out of my control. Focusing on what if has no value. I can recall early in my policing career thinking of the what if and quickly realized I had no control over what might or could happen and I was wasting valuable energy. My best response was to accept I only had control of me and to put what if in my rear view mirror. To remain focused on the areas I actually had control of which was to accept I could control my own destiny and to only deal with what if only, when it became a reality. Then to take it as a challenge to be overcome. The saying ‘If its to be, it's up to me’ certainly applies.
