Attitude

unnamed.jpg

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 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 me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you … we are in charge of our Attitudes.” Charles Swindoll

  1. This should be my motto. I have struggled my entire life with having a pessimistic outlook, and in the last year and a half or so I have realized that it’s up to me to change this. It’s something I struggle with constantly, but making a choice to change my attitude has completely changed my life. It’s worth it!
