The John Maxwell Team




“Life is 10% of what happens to me & 90% of how I react to it.” –JOHN C. MAXWELL


I often say to people: life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% how you react to it. Well, that's my statement. I hope it's a statement of strength to you. Welcome to minute with Maxwell. My name is John.

Let's look at that statement for just a moment. Life is 10% of what happens to me, 90% how I react to it. Wow! Those aren't close numbers. Very little of how I overcome adversity is based on what the adversity is in my life. Almost everything, 90%, is determined not by what that crisis is, but by how I respond and how I react to that crisis.

You see, I have people constantly share with me their difficulties, their failures, and I want to always listen well and love well. But while they're sharing their failures with me, I'm always asking one question. And I wait until they're finished with their story of difficulty, and then I look at them and I just simply ask them: What did you learn? How did you respond? Because, you see, it's not the size of the crisis; it’s the size of the learning. That's where the difference is. 10% crisis issue, 90% how did I respond? 90%! If anybody said, I'm going to give you 90% odds of being successful in overcoming a crisis, you wouldn't ask to reduce the size of the crisis. You wouldn’t ask to reduce the size of who you are as a person.

Thank you for being with me today on Minute with Maxwell.
