Day 51: Master Yourself

Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.

~ Charles Swindoll

I love today’s inspirational quote because it speaks of something that I hold as a universal truth.  Life happens.  I can’t control it.  The only thing on this planet that I can control is how I react to it.  There is no arguing this fact.

Once I learned this, I believe I became a more effectual person.  My life made sense.  Nothing that happened paralyzed me.  Nothing anyone else did held power over me.  With this realization, I became the master of myself, and I can tell you, things have been leaps-and-bounds better since.

Don’t spend your life being the victim.  You’re not helping yourself.  At all.  Instead, when life shits on you, brush it off and takes the steps you need to improve it.  Control your reaction to it.  Master yourself.  It’s the only way to truly realize your potential.
