10% of life is made up of what happens to you …
90% of life is decided by how you react …
The slides walked through an example of how a tiny accident at the breakfast table could totally ruin your day.
The accident (the 10%) was outside your control. The rest was determined by how you chose to react.
The scenario was totally believable. I could see myself in it. Especially when I'm as tired and pressured as I am at the moment, which is what made it so powerful for me. The point is that how you react is a choice.
Thank you for reminding me.
