You Control You

You always have the freedom to decide your own attitude. There is no person, no law, no wall, no prison, no circumstance that can prevent you from exercising control over your own mind.

Your circumstances do not control you. You control you. The world around you is as good, or as bad, and you decide to make it. You could be born in a palace, and end up making nothing of your life. Or you could grow up in a slum, and rise to become a person of great accomplishment.

You can be patient amid frustration. You can be focused amid confusion. You can be disciplined amid debauchery (kegiatan-kegiatan yang tidak berakhlak). You can be positive in the face of despair, and loving in the face of hatred.

The person you are inside, does not depend on the things happening on the outside. A life of success comes from remaining steadfast (tegas, teguh) to your own purpose and using, rather than being consumed by, the whims of circumstance.

- Ralph Marston
