Choosing our response to circumstance

“Whether a problem is direct (problems involving our own behaviour), indirect (problems involving other people’s behaviour), or no control (problems we can do nothing about, such as our past and situational realities), we have in our hands the first step to the solution. Changing our habits, changing our methods of influence and changing the way we see our ‘no control’ problems are all within our circle of influence. It is inspiring to realise that in choosing our response to circumstance, we powerfully affect our circumstance. When we change one part of the chemical formula, we change the nature of the results.” (Stephen R Covey, Author of ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People : Powerful Lessons in Personal Change

“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.” (Mahatma Gandhi)
