ATTITUDE

“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”

This quote is so true on how we can change the mere outcome of any given situation. It is where we as people choose to change our attitudes in the moment that gives us our perspective on our reality. Life is a roller coaster, it twist, it turns, takes us fast and furious at times slow and calculated at others, turns us upside down and yet always seems to deliver us back safe and sound to the ground and as we look back we can say what a ride and persist forward to the next one. Choice in ATTITUDE will always be free will and it is with that free will we can make our lives a trodden path or the road less travelled and look beyond the obvious and know that we are who we are by the thoughts that create our attitudes.
