Life Just 10% Of What Happens And 90% Of How You React - Poem by Bashyam Narayanan

Life 10% what happens and 90% your reaction on the happenings

We are free to choose
Our response in any given situation
But we are not free to
Choose the consequences of those actions

Our actions,
Those governed by right principles
Bring positive results
Dishonesty in dealing can
Bring social consequences,
Depending on whether or not
We are found out
Also are our natural consequences
Fix result of our actions,
Which Indian Philosophy puts as Karma

That means our choice of response, in a way,
Is our choice of consequences
The important and decisive factor in life
Is not what happens to us
But, the way
We take towards what happens
