Using external and internal locus of control

"Cultivating Control" explores the difference between an external vs internal locus of control. Some of us can always find a way to blame external factors when things don't go our way. But studies show that people who take responsibility for their situation and believe that they’re in control of their destiny feel less stressed, less depressed, and more empowered. Learn how to enhance your coping abilities and reduce stress in your life.
