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, an education, than money, than circumstances,than failures,than success,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 that we have a choice everyday regarding the ATTITUDE we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past.. we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. The only thing we can do is play the on string we have, and that is our attitude.. I am convinced that life is 10% of what happened to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you .. we are in charge of our ATTITUDES.
