90/10 rule by Stephen Covey

Everyone says I tend to be pretty optimistic. Well ok, its true, but the other choice of looking at life half empty is so much worst.

My friend Yasi passed the 90/10 email around. Basically…we control 90% of our life. Our decisions, reactions, and our outlooks determine how our life is. For example if you fail a test. You can either handle it by blaming everyone around you and making life miserable for everyone or accept your grade and work harder next time.

Very simple concept, 10% of things we have no control over such as someone else hitting our car, but how you handle the outcome is up to you.
