Researchers estimate that 50% of our lives is out of our control. That's a lot of percent! According to studies this 50% constitutes our DNA. In other words, we can't control who our ancestors are and there's no use trying to pretend that we can. We just have to accept it!
The encouraging news is that we do have influence over the other 50% of our lives and if we want to be happy then our first step is to accept who we are, and our next step is to get busy focusing on the what we can control.
