It’s up to you


I am not what happened to me I am what I choose to become.

C.G. Jung

Calm yourself


The best answer to anger is silence.

Marcus Aurelius

You control yourself


You cannot control the behavior of others, but you can always choose how you respond to it.

Roy T. Bennett

Control your reactions

You will continue to suffer if you have an emotional reaction to everything that is said to you. True power is sitting back and obversing everything with logic. If words control you that means everyone else can control you. Breathe and allow things to pass.

Bruce Lee


Your karma

How people treat you is their karma. How you react is yours.

Wayne Dyer


It’s up to you!

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

Charles Swindoll


Make the best out of it

Things work out best for those who make the best of how things work out.

John Wooden


Control your attitude

You cannot tailor make your situation in life, but you can tailor make your attitudes to fit those situations.

Zig Ziglar


Bruce Lee Week #6: Create your world

To hell with circumstances, I create opportunities.

Bruce Lee

There are a lot of things that can not be controlled. Life will put you in situations that you do not like at all. But although you can not control those situations, you can control your reactions to them.

How you react to situations and given circumstances defines what you can make out of them. You can turn a bad situation into a good opportunity. Having a flat tire? Great, you will learn how to change a tire! Your usual bus route is cancelled due to whatever reason? Awesome, time to learn a new route.

Okay, those examples are pretty mundane, but you get the point. It is about you feel and react towards what life throws at you that makes you happy or not. It is very important to realise that there is a lot out of your control and to just let it go. That’s just how it is, so don’t worry and make the best out of it.

Also, don’t wait for right moments all the time. Often, there is no right time. The right time is an imaginary moment you created in order to prolong decisions and bold actions. Create the right moment by acting!


It’s about your reaction

Bottom line is, even if you see ’em coming, you’re not ready for the big moments. No one asks for their life to change, not really. But it does. So what are we, helpless? Puppets? No. The big moments are gonna come. You can’t help that. It’s what you do afterwards that counts. That’s when you find out who you are.

Joss Whedon
