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 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 lay on
the one string we have,
and that is our attitude ...

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me
and 90% how I react to it.
And so it is with you ...
we are in charge of our attitude.
