Today I went to listen to a sage woman. She imparted much knowledge on the subject of attitude. One of the pieces she shared struck me as quite profound and so I wanted to share these words with you.

"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact attitude has on life." Attitude to me is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what others think, say or do. 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 can not change the past...the fact that people will act in a certain way...we cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is to play 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." - Chuck Swindoll
