From the page: Do not let people fool you.
YOU can control how you react.
Its true and a lot of people need to read that haha but I really hate how they write "this will change your life" in these type of things.. Thats getting old -_-
It's all about how situations are perceived and taking the appropriate action.
Fucking SHIT! Forwarded spam was enough, what fucker thought it would be good to share as a webpage?
This is just the kind of thing my mum would send me as an e-mail. :p
...i have to read this lecture everyday...till i learn how to control myself!!:D
you are what you eat. blah blah blah
Very good way to put this, I knew that we are pretty much in control of what we decide to do with our lives and how we live our lives and the choices we make, did not know that we have 90% control over our reactions. Thanks for sharing and so well written.
Another idea to consider is the 80/20 rule. Most often 20% of our actions provide us 80% of the results. So, if you want a big impact.....take these steps.
1. Define what you want
2. Understand why you want it (this will give you the motivation)
3. Consider all the actions you could do / should do to achieve this outcome.
4. Select the 20% action items which you MUST take to get the outcome
5. Take the action!

Good words to live by!
There are no problems, only situations that we have to deal with. We make the problems by the way we deal with situations.
The entire "Self Improvement" category seems to suck. I don't even know why I added it to my list.
Would have been better if the philosophical message was kept apart from some made up ratio. Be more self aware of why your actions.
Sometime it is difficult to control ones reaction , however this is a good reminder.
Bah, everyone has control over their lives who has physical control over their bodies. Although you cannot always control the situations you are put into, you can always make a conscious decision on how to act once they are upon you.
It can change your life.
