“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” ~Charles R. Swindoll.
When I read this quote, I think of perspective. While you can’t always control what happens around you or to you, you can control how you react. This plays a huge part on how this affect you.
Are you going to be grateful for the lesson learned or complain?
We can choose to see things in a positive perspective. This is a more healthier, and productive alternative to choosing to have a bad attitude or what-have-you.
This obviously doesn’t apply to everything though.
