Quote of the Day: "The longer I live, the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it." – Charles Swindoll. I like this one and it helps to think about this theory when bad stuff happens to you, ie. its not what is happening, its how you look at it / respond to it that matters. It also reminds me of that quote that says something like 90% of success is just showing up; and I'd add: Just showing up prepared. The other 10% is timing, luck, fate, God, or whatever you'd like to call that unknown force at work.
