Shit happens. So what next? | 92/100

Robert Greene and 50 Cent describe this process as ‘turning shit into sugar’ in their fascinating book, The 50th Law. Marcus Aurelius captured the same idea in his private journals thousands of years ago:

“You have power over your mind – not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

Events are just events: they’re neither good nor bad.

How you react to them, what you choose to do next – that’s what counts. That’s where you decide whether you’re going to turn shit into sugar.
