Seaward says: "One of the most important lessons I've learned is that it's not what happens to us, but our reaction to what happens to us that causes us stress." He shows us how to learn this lesson, too. Then he continues: "And that means we have the power to control our level of stress. We, in fact, have the power to choose not to react at all to that which happens around us. It is not what life brings to us that determines our level of happiness and self-fulfillment. It is the attitude we bring to life. The most important decision we can make each day is our choice of attitude. It is what will spur us on or stand in our way." Since we are in charge of our attitude, we are the architects of our lives."
