You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.
You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.

Mental strength is really important because you either win or lose in your mind. And I'm not solely talking about sporting matches, boxing events - anything you do, you do it first with your mental strength.

Robert A. Heinlein
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
