"When you feel frustrated or upset by a person or situation, remember that you are not reacting to the person or the situation, but to your feelings about the person or situation. These are your feelings, and your feelings are not someone else's fault. When you recognize and understand this completely, you are ready to take responsibility for how you feel and change it. And if you can accept things as they are, you are ready to take responsibility for your situation and for all the events you see as problems. (...) All problems contain the seeds of opportunity, and this awareness allows you to take the moment and transform it to a better situation or thing."
-from The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success by Deepak Chopra, M.D.
