Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it
There are times in our life when things do not go our way and during those challenges, how we look at that situation and what we do is up to us. Our reaction to every event is the key. So how do we react positively? How can you ensure that any event becomes 10% what happens and 90% how we react? We can do this with the practice of Affirmation, where repeating an Affirmation can change the way we think of our-self and of others.
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.Charles R. Swindoll
By Gurbani Singh: Hey everybody! Once again, i do not do this normally but i felt the need to say thank you to everyone who is reading my posts. Although it is not hard to write them, it makes me happy to see that my work is helping others and influencing others in good ways.
To be honest, before writing this post i did not know who Charles R. Swindoll was, and i have to say, he is pretty cool! He is a Christian pastor, author, educator, and radio preacher, which just means that he talks about his religion and beliefs on his radio station. He founded Insight for Living which airs a radio program of the same name on more than 2,000 stations around the world in 15 languages! That is so crazy, i have never heard of this man and he has accomplished so much!
Anyways, now we can officially talk about his quote. Like some other quotes i have done, this is more of a casual but meaningful quote. There are so many things that will happen to you in life, whether it is a casual homework assignment, your final to graduate, getting married, accepting a job offer. But when things do not go your way and you have challenges, your reaction and the way you respond to the situation and its environment is what matters most.
So go ahead, and practice, as dumb as it sounds, your quick thinking skills and how fast you can make proper decisions in a fast and timely manner.
My name is Gurbani Singh. Since I am a teenager, I often find myself searching for positive quotes for girls. After reading these I have made it a goal to post Positive and Inspiring quotes daily. I hope that these are as encouraging to you as they are for me to learn from and apply to our daily lives.
If you are a parent, I hope you find my posts inspirational and motivating.
Encourage your kids to read and write what this means to them & how they can apply this quote to their lives. Also, consider learning and practicing breathing meditation as a way to help relax and reflect on the message.
