So let me share some of my favorite lines from this interview:

“The foundations of which you are starting starts with the discovery of the true issue of it and the growth you want to see. It starts with you and who you are. But while with great ability, I have confidence that you can achieve anything that you want. But understand that as you embark upon that journey, if you don’t have the right foundation, it will be a great trouble to you and a danger to the whole fabric of the environment that you’ve laid for yourself. So why not put yourself and set yourself up for success with intention?” – Dr. Ian Brooks

Whatever you are facing, 90% of it is because of your response or your reaction to the situation. When you react with the knee jerk reaction, things start piling up and you’ll feel everything is out of your control. But actually, everything is happening because of your reaction to the situation. And in any moment, that is 90 percent of your things that are in your control based on how you react to it. And only 10 percent is what is out of your control.” – Dr. Rozina

Remember, the world is constantly in transition and constant change, and how we react to these changes determines the quality of our lives.

When you choose to step back, calm down, and respond with intention during those challenging times of transition, you can turn them into an opportunity for growth and self-discovery.

Dedicated to your health and happiness, 

Dr. Rozina
