ATTITUDE

This was an article given to me to read during a job training session several years ago, and it really stuck with me. I thought it was appropriate for the situation I am in right now and the people I am dealing with:

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on my life. Attitude, to me, is more important than fact. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearances, giftedness or skills. It will make or break a company, a church, a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding 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 you and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in charge of our attitudes.” (Charles Swindoll)
