Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.. What occurs is less important than our reaction to it
No matter whether we succeed or fail, our reaction to both is what defines us. How we perceive things determines our reactions to them.
Ultimately, no one or nothing can make you happy or unhappy; it all depends on how we react.. We are ultimately responsible for our reactions and actions
“Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it”. But, when you strip it down, all it really means is that you have an input, then that input gets changed into something else by the function,which produces an output
Well, as it pertains to life, everything you experience is the input. Then your life experience, genetic predispositions, and other voluntary factors serve as the function that alters that input, and your left with your output, which is basically how your perceive it.
In fact, it argues that only 10% of the input is retained, and the function is responsible for 90% of the result. When you make positivity, gratitude, and empathy default characteristics in your life, they influence the function that runs subconsciously, altering all inputs into a more positive, grateful, and empathetic interpretation.
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Meaning of Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it
This quote indicates to one thing that really shapes our lives and that is our attitude. We can’t control what’s going to happen but we can control how we react to it, or how it affects us
But we must not let that moment take us down and tear all the confidence away from us. Instead we can take it as a lesson, so as we don’t make same mistakes the second time
Life has ups and downs and when we’re down, what we do is up to us.. which says we must react positively to falling by getting back up even if it means falling again.
A great technique is having an affirmation which can help you remember it consistently.. “I can change my thoughts” is a good affirmation to remind you of your capabilities.
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

Charles Swindoll is an author, educator, and Christian pastor.. This quote gives you a powerful key to achieve happiness and fulfillment along the way.
There are 4 powerful positive ways you can respond to whatever happens to you in life to turn anything into a force for good.. There is some inspiration about meaning in Viktor Frankl’s book, “Man’s Search for Meaning”(https://amzn.to/3hRXXLk)
“Life is 10 percent what happens to you and 90 percent how you react to it”, said the famous educator and author Charles R. Life, for each one of us, has different meanings and definitions
However, a minor setback can send our planned, structured lives spiraling out of control.. But should we let our lives be defined by a few upsetting events? Should a few setbacks, although big or not, dampen our spirits, should we hang on to the fact that everything’s lost? No, we should not
What we make of our lives, depends majorly on how we react to the situations happening in and around us. Sometimes life may throw such problems at us that all we would want to do is to snuggle inside our bed covers and not face the world, because in times of crisis, hiding from our problems always seems like a better option
Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. We have all heard the famous quote from Lou Holtz, “life is 10% of what happens and 90% of how you react to it.”
When you settle, you compromise your self-worth because you accept less than meaningful conditions. The basis is to move from being settled to an mindset of hell yeah in everything you do.
So, you take what is available now, hoping it will occupy your time until something better comes along.. It’s what you devote your time and attention to, that matters.
When things aren’t working the way you want them to, or you feel you’re surrounded by problems, it can be tempting to look outward and try to change the things that you feel are causing issues. Chances are the issues you’re facing aren’t so cut and dry
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do
It will make or break a company…a church…a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day
It Is Not What Happens To You It Is How You Respond To It. We have all heard the famous saying, “life is 10% of what happens and 90% of how you react to it.” In life, attitude is everything; it is what shapes our beliefs and our desires
We are always in control of our emotions despite any given situation.. Many people blame their circumstances for their shortcomings and as a result accept the harsh reality of their situation
What allows these people to succeed? They realize it is not what has happened to them in their lives, but the manner in which they react to these events. The way a person decides to respond to certain occurrences is what will shape his or her feelings, actions and results
Recently I was in a repair shop and I saw a familiar quote. Although I heard this quote before, I never really stopped to think about what it was saying.
Later on, I begin to think about my life as it relates to that quote. I did not grow up on the “privileged” side of the tracks
As a teen I saw a lot of people around me become teenage mothers, high school drop-outs, drug dealers, inmates, drug addicts, and so on. In the 11th grade, one of my teachers asked me about my home situation
Recently, we asked Ten Percent Happier app subscribers what topics they most wanted to hear about. One of the responses we received the most, in various forms, was “how can I be more accepting of life’s ups and downs?”
And why, at least in my experience, meditation has a lot more to offer.. If you think about it, the answer to “how can I be more accepting of life’s ups and downs?” is pretty obvious
Sometimes you get the big break / job / love affair / recognition, and sometimes you don’t. Sometimes what you have feels like enough, and sometimes it doesn’t
The book IKIGAI: The Japanese Secret To a Long and Happy Life by Héctor García and Francesc Miralles, is more of a case study on the lives of the long-living residents from Ogimi, a small village in Okinawa, than an explanation or guide to understanding Ikigai.. The book concludes with 10 ten rules of ikigai that the author’s distilled from the wisdom of these long-living residents
Your lifestyle will be very different to the centenarians of Ogami. You probably work, live in a city, have many responsibilities, financial stress, relationship problems and many things on your mind and so on
Keep in mind these aren’t rules that you must follow in order to achieve ikigai, but suggestions or habits you could adopt to improve your health and well being so you can discover and live your ikigai.. A question you can ask yourself is,” What rules can I easily implement that will help me with my day to day life?”
The 10% of the brain myth states that humans generally use only one-tenth (or some other small fraction) of their brains. It has been misattributed to many famous scientists and historical figures, notably Albert Einstein. By extrapolation, it is suggested that a person may ‘harness’ or ‘unlock’ this unused potential and increase their intelligence.
Though specific mechanisms regarding brain function remain to be fully described—e.g. memory, consciousness—the physiology of brain mapping suggests that all areas of the brain have a function and that they are used nearly all the time.
In the 1890s, they tested the theory in the accelerated raising of the child prodigy William Sidis. Thereafter, James told lecture audiences that people only meet a fraction of their full mental potential, which is a plausible claim.
A term life insurance policy is the simplest, purest form of life insurance: You pay a premium for a period of time – typically between 10 and 30 years – and if you die during that time a cash benefit is paid to your family (or anyone else you name as your beneficiary).. Term life is typically less expensive than a permanent whole life policy – but unlike permanent life insurance, term policies have no cash value, no payout after the term expires, and no value other than a death benefit
Here are three key questions you should answer before you get a policy:. – How much term life insurance coverage do you need?
That benefit is usually tax-free (unless the premiums are paid with pre-tax dollars).. You may have seen or heard ads that say things like, “A male non-smoker in his 30s can get a 20-year $500,000 term policy for under $30 a month.” Some people can get that much coverage for under $30 – but it’s not automatic
You may be familiar with that friend who seems to have given up drinking booze, smoking, eating sugar, and pretty much everything else under the sun. And they don’t even look miserable — what’s with that?
The ability to make changes stick and the self-control to issue that all-powerful “no” must be so difficult, right?. Put simply, it’s far too easy to waste our time, money, and energy by not committing wholeheartedly to an important life change.
We spend way too much money on clothes when we try to cut down on online shopping. We want to quit smoking weed but live so close to the dispensary.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a rare neurological disease that affects motor neurons—those nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that control voluntary muscle movement. Voluntary muscles are those we choose to move to produce movements like chewing, walking, and talking
ALS has no cure and there is no effective treatment to reverse its progression.. As motor neurons degenerate and die, they stop sending messages to the muscles, which causes the muscles to weaken, start to twitch (fasciculations), and waste away (atrophy)
– Muscle twitches in the arm, leg, shoulder, or tongue. – Muscle weakness affecting an arm, a leg, the neck, or diaphragm
When you feel down in the dumps or find yourself in a funk, how do you cope?. Do you turn to junk food, self-medication, shopping, etc.?
