Attitude

The longer I live,
the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
Attitude, to me,
is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past,
than education, than money,
than circumstances,than failures,
than successes, than what other people
think or say or do.
It is more important than appearance,
giftedness, or skill.
It will break a company…a church…a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice
every dayregarding the attitude
we will embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past…
we cannot change the fact that people
will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the
one string we have, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10%
what happens to meand 90%
how I react to it.
And so it is with you.
We are in charge of our attitude.
