Quote of the Day

"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...”

~ Charles Swindoll

I'm always a bit scared to quote religious leaders,  especially ones whose work I don't know well,  but whatever else he may believe,  here he and I agree 100%.  I see this all the times in my readings - how we feel about something,  the attitudes we have,  are much more significant than the events themselves.
