You can choose to be a person who has resulted simply from what has happened, or from what you’ve chosen to be and do about what has happened. – Neale Donald Walsch
It’s really up to you.
How you react to life events is a decision you make! Jack Canfield shares the following formula:
E + R = O
Event plus our reaction to that event results in an outcome. The event is what it is; how we choose to be (sad, happy, indifferent etc.) and to do (shout, smile, lash out, learn…) is a choice we make every time.
Our peace is entirely up to us because we control our reaction to all external stimuli. How do you choose to react? Rather how do you choose to be?
