"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, 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 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 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”
