has ups and downs and when we’re down, what we do is up to us.

There is a wonderful Japanese proverb:

“Fall seven times, stand up eight”

which says we must react positively to falling by getting back up even if it means falling again.

So how we make life ten percent of what happens to us and ninety percent of how we can react to it?

A technique is having an affirmation which can you remember it consistently.

“I can change my thoughts”  is a affirmation to remind you of your capabilities.

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 for the graduate program, 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.

“Life is 10% what happens to you
and 90% how you react to it.”
