There are three types of events in this world:
- Events you can control;
- Events you can influence; and
- Events you can do nothing but accept.
Don’t confuse the events, it will only make you angry.
More often than not, you can influence an event.
Don’t make the mistake of believing that you can control much in this world. Life has a funny way of shaking that belief to the ground.
Likewise, don’t fall victim to believing you have to accept much in this world, you can almost always stand up and influence change.
The sage among us is the one that can easily distinguish between these events.
