You Have the Power – One-Liner Wednesday


It’s not what happens to you that matters, it’s how you respond to what happens to you that makes a difference.” ~ Zig Ziglar

How much difference does it make?

As Lou Holtz said, “Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.”

You may not have control over everything that happens in your life, but you certainly have control over how you choose to respond.

    So very true! Response is everything.

    Lou Holtz forgot the exception to his rule;
    Chuck Norris, he happens to life and life responds to him.


  3. How about, “Life is ten per cent of what happens to you, 45 per cent of the time you waste worrying about what might happen to you, and 45 per cent of you how you respond to it”. Or something like that!
