You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this and you will find strength.
Marcus Aurelius

You have control over your mind, your thoughts and your actions. Do your best to make sure that you keep perspective on what you can and cannot control. Don’t adopt the victim mindset, wherein you allow other peoples’ words and actions to dictate how you feel or act. You are in control. You can and should take into account what others do and say and what you expect them to do and say in the future, but you should most definitely not let it control how you feel or how you act. This is fundamental to being an achiever with staying power through good times and bad.
