fine as soon as possible.
Attitude
By Charles Swindoll
“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 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 or 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 thing 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.”
