Things to Think About - Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent of how I react to it

Things to Think About
By Pepper de Callier

“Life is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent of how I react to it.” Charles Swindoll

Over the years, I have written much about personal responsibility and its role in achieving a fulfilling life and career, and I am always drawn to quotes that help us realize that, as this one does.

Regardless of what happens to us, how we react is completely up to us—joy, anger, reflection—it’s up to us, and when you view life this way, it can make one’s journey so much more fulfilled, knowing that, while many things can happen to us, no one has control over our reaction—only we do.

Good luck on your journey!
