Last Tuesday our CFO, shared this formula which from come the author of Chicken soup. I forgot the authors name. I'll just edit this post once I remember it. The formula was E + R = O , E stand for events , R for reaction and O for Outcome. She explained the formula by telling us that , Events are unchangeable, Reactions is our option, Outcome is the result of our Reaction. Meaning; I cannot change the events but I have the power to change my reaction, by instructing my mind, by changing my
perspective in order to come up w/ a good outcome no matter how bad the events has been. If the reaction is negative , chances are you'll get a negative result too. But if your response over a particular event is good despite disappointing facts, then you'll see a good outcome too. We are what we think and we act.
