Each morning when I open my eyes, I say to myself “I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today.” – Groucho Marx

We have no control over most of the events that will come our way today. We live and work in a complex, interdependent world. This independency links unequivocally to the actions of others.

If we permit the events of the day to determine our mood or our happiness, we are randomly abdicating authority over ourselves to others. Only you decide how you respond to life’s events. You have the authority, the power, to choose your actions. Why would anyone choose to be unhappy? Choose self-determination and happiness over abdication and sadness.
