It's Not What Happens To You...

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
“It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.”
-  Epictetus

“There is the story of the alcoholic father with two sons. One follows in his father’s footsteps and ends up struggling through life as a drunk, and the other becomes a successful, sober businessman. Each are asked: “Why are you the way you are?” The answer for both is the same: “Well, it’s because my father was an alcoholic.” The same event, the same childhood, two different outcomes. This is true for almost all situations  –  what happens to us is an objective reality, how we respond is a subjective choice. The Stoics  –  of which Epictetus was one  –  would say that we don’t control what happens to us, all we control are our thoughts and reactions to what happens to us. Remember that: You’re defined in this life not by your good luck or your bad luck, but your reaction to those strokes of fortune. Don’t let anyone tell you different.”
- Ryan Holiday,
