Attitude: My, You Do Have An 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 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 the past we cannot change the fact that people will act a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on 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 of Charles Swindoll very much feels to me almost the same sentiment expressed by Robert Fulghum in his Credo: Imagination is Stronger.
