On Attitude

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude is more than facts; it’s more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances and 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, it will cause a church to soar or sink.  It will be the difference between a happy home and a home of horror.  It’s attitude, and the remarkable thing is, you have a choice every day regarding the attitude you will embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past, we cannot change the tick of the clock and we cannot change the march towards death.  We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitables.  I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me, and 90 percent how I respond to it.”

–Charles R. Swindoll
