Daily Lift #251

We Control our Response

To a great extent, we create the world in which we live. While many events are beyond our control and we are unable to have a direct influence on them, to a large degree we still have the ability to control our attitudes towards any given situation. Hence, the emotional consequences of events is largely up to us.

It is unrealistic to expect perfect control, but anyone who works calmly and persistently on his thoughts will be able to improve.

(see Gateway to Happiness, pp.48-9)
