Independence 90/10

  1. 1. Independence<br />The 90/10 Principle<br />
  2. 2. Independence<br />You already know<br />this principle!<br />You just don’t realize that you know it….<br />Remember the 90/10 Principle and<br /> it will change your life <br />(or at least, the way<br /> you react to situations) <br />
  3. 3. Independence<br />What is this Principle? <br />10% of life is made up of what happens to you. …<br />90% of life is decided by how you react… <br />
  4. 4. Independence<br />What does this mean? <br />On average, we have NO control over 10% of what happens to us. <br />
  5. 5. Independence<br />A driver may cut us<br /> off in traffic. <br />We cannot stop the car from breaking down.<br /> The plane will be late arriving, which throws our whole schedule off. <br />
  6. 6. Independence<br />We have NO control over this 10%.<br />The other 90% is different.<br />You determine the other 90%.<br />How?... By your reaction. <br />
  7. 7. Independence<br />You cannot control a red light. <br />or yellow – Shanel & Montrel<br />However, you can control your reaction. <br />Do not let people fool you.<br />YOU can control how you react. <br />Let us use an example… <br />
  8. 8. Independence<br />You are having breakfast with your family. Your daughter knocks over a bowl of cereal onto your shirt. You have no control over what has just happened. What happens next will be determined by how you react. <br />
  9. 9. Independence<br />You yell. You harshly scold your daughter for knocking the bowl over. She breaks down in tears. After scolding her, you turn to your wife and you criticize her for placing the bowl too close to the edge of the table. A short verbal battle follows. You storm upstairs and change your shirt. Back downstairs, you find your daughter has been too busy crying to finish her breakfast and getting ready to go to school. <br />She misses the bus. <br />
  10. 10. Independence<br />Your spouse must leave immediately for work. You rush to the car and drive your daughter to school. Because you are late, you drive 50 miles per hour in a 35 mph speed limit zone. <br />
  11. 11. Independence<br />After a 15-minute delay and throwing the $110.00 traffic fine away, you arrive at school. Your daughter runs into the building without saying goodbye. After arriving at the office 20 minutes late, you realize you forgot your laptop and part of your uniform. Your day has started terribly. <br />As it continues, it seems to <br />get worse and worse. You<br />look forward to <br />coming home. <br />
  12. 12. Independence<br />When you arrive home, you find a small wedge in your relationship with your wife and daughter. Why? Because of how you reacted in the morning. Why did you have a bad day? <br />
  13. 13. Independence<br />Did the coffee cause it?<br />Did your daughter cause it? <br />Did the policeman cause it? <br />Did you cause it? <br />The answer is “D” <br />
  14. 14. Independence<br />You had no control over what happened with the bowl of cereal. How you reacted in those 5 seconds is what caused your bad day. Here is what could have and should have happened:<br />
  15. 15. Independence<br />The spilled cereal splashes over you. Your daughter is about to cry. You gently say: “It’s okay, honey, you just need to be more careful next time.” Grabbing a towel you go upstairs and change your shirt. You grab your laptop, and you come back down in time to look through the window and see your child getting on the bus. She turns and waves. You arrive 5 minutes early and cheerfully greet the staff. <br />Notice the difference? <br />
  16. 16. Independence<br />Two different scenarios.<br />Both started the same. <br />Both ended different. <br />Why? Because of how you reacted. You really have no control over 10% of what happens in your life. The other 90% was determined by your reaction. <br />
  17. 17. Independence<br />Here are some ways to apply the 90/10 Principle: If someone says something negative about you, do not be a sponge. Let the attack roll off like water on glass. You do not have to let the negative comments affect you. React properly and it will not ruin your day. A wrong reaction could result in losing a friend, being fired, or getting stressed out. <br />
  18. 18. Independence<br />How do you react if someone cuts you off in traffic? Do you lose your temper? Pound on the steering wheel? (one person actually had the steering wheel fall off) Do you curse? Does your blood pressure skyrocket? Who cares if you arrive 10 seconds later at work? Why let the cars ruin your drive? <br />
  19. 19. Independence<br />Remember the 90/10 Principle and don’t worry about it. You are told you lost your job. Why lose sleep and get irritated? It will work out. Use your worrying energy and time to find a new job. <br />
  20. 20. Independence<br />The plane is late. It is going to mangle your schedule for the day. Why take out your frustration on the flight attendant? She has no control over what is going on. Use your time to study, to meditate, or get to know the other passengers… why stress out? It will just make things worse. <br />
  21. 21. Independence<br />Now you know the 90/10 Principle. Apply it and you will be amazed at the results. You will lose nothing if you try it. <br />The 90/10 Principle is incredible. Very few know and apply this Principle. The result? You will see it by yourself! Don’t expect others to understand.<br />
  22. 22. Independence<br />Millions of people are suffering from undeserved stress, trials, problems and headaches. To walk in koinonia, WE MUST understand and apply the 90/10 Principle. It can change your life! …Enjoy it... It only takes Yah’s will combined with our willpower to give ourselves permission to experience this Principle.<br />
  23. 23. Independence<br />Absolutely everything we do, give, say, or even think, is like a Boomerang: Gal 6:7 Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. <br />It will come back to us... If we want to receive, we need to learn to give first... Maybe we will end with our hands empty, but our heart will be filled with love... And those who love life, have that feeling marked in their hearts … <br />
  24. 24. Independence<br />SPACE – THE FINAL FRONTIER?<br />The space between the stimulus and your response is precious.<br />It’s the opportunity to decide to make the right or wrong decision that affects you and those around you.<br />For the times when you failed to use that space for good, let’s learn from it. <br />For the times you overacted and caused undue stress, now is the time to learn, repent, and move forward.<br />90/10 in 2010<br />
  25. 25. Independence<br />90/10 in 2010<br />THE END!<br />
