9 lessons from the book It Takes What It Takes: How to Think Neutrally and Gain Control of Your Life by Trevor Moawad:

1. Let Go of the Past. Dwelling on past mistakes or failures holds you back. Accept them, learn from them, and keep moving forward.

2. Don't Get Emotional. Big decisions are best made with a clear head. Practice thinking neutrally – focus on facts, not feelings driven by fear or excitement.

3. The Present is All You Can Control. You can't change the past, and the future isn't here yet. Make the most of the 'now' by taking action and focusing on what you can influence in this moment.

4. Don't Label Things. Calling something 'good' or 'bad' stops you from seeing it clearly. Try to describe situations without judgment to understand them better.

5. Pressure is a Choice. Stressful situations come with the territory of life. You can choose to see them as challenges or as crushing weights – the outcome depends on your mindset.

6. Negative Thoughts are Normal (and Optional). Everyone has unhelpful thoughts from time to time. Notice them, but don't take them as the truth. Choose to focus on more helpful ways of thinking.

7. Focus on What You Want, Not What You Don't Want. Getting stuck on what you're trying to avoid makes it harder to find solutions. Set your sights on a positive outcome, then create a plan to reach it.

8. Small Steps Matter. Big goals can feel overwhelming. Break them down into smaller, achievable chunks and celebrate each little bit of progress.

9. Be Willing to Adapt. Clinging to how things 'should' be will lead to disappointment. Remain flexible and look for alternative solutions when things don't go as planned.
