How to get your life together
1. Know that you can control your choices
That’s the first thing you need to remind yourself in order to get your life together. See some times we often believe that we don’t have any control over anything that happens in our lives, but that’s not the case.

It’s important that you understand that it’s you who is in your control but not anyone else. You can’t possibly control the actions or others but only yourself. And this would definitely have a positive impact on your mind and you will feel more control over yourself.
2. Don’t complain or make excuses
