I’d go even further and say that not only have we full control over our response, but that we are responsible for it, no matter what.

All the things you mentioned — the weather, other drivers, cancer — aren’t within our control. But in order to not be tossed around by life, we have to take responsibility for these things, even if they aren’t our fault.

By accepting the stimulus as it is and focussing on your response, you can gain control of your life instead of merely reacting to external circumstances.
