    The motif behind it is how we react!!!
    I too copied and pasted the part I said. I believe your source is ultimately wrong.
    10% of life is made up of what happens to you. 90% of life is decided by how you react.

    Actually my source is not one single source, I checked several ones...

    I havent actually found a single source that says what you insinuate..

    LOL first you said:

    One has control of 90% of his life. The other 10% is just luck.
    and NOW you changed it into:

    90% of life is decided by how you react. 10% of life is made up of what happens to you.

    So for me its kind of clear that your 'source' is not trustworthy...

    They both mean the same thing. Only in different context. The first time I was paraphrasing to what I remember. The second time I looked it up.

    I guess there are two theories on it... and that must be the opposing one.

    If you wish to believe that you have no control over your life it's up to you. I doubt Bill Gates went from a poor lad to one of the richest men in the world by chance. You are your only limitation. The only true thing that can make a change in your life is you. Not what is around you.

Any others experience this?
    I guess everyone does this, right? But the question is, "how much?"
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    Woww thanks ^^ When put like that, you just made something great that I agree with out of something I completely dissagree with
    Really it is inspiring haha! Of course I want to have control over my life, but rationally it seems as if there are more factors we can't control.

    If anything it shows to TAKE CONTROL! ^^

    You aren't stubborn. That's a very good thing.
