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 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 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.Send a kiss

  1. I agree. Attitude is everything. This has been a litany in my house.

    “I do have control. I decide. I may not be able to control what people say or do but I do control how I react to them.”

    My mother drives me crazy. I take her grocery shopping. She’s old, bitter and unhappy with life,she complains and is nasty to me. Some trips I go home angry and with a head ache. Some trips I go home laughing about the silly things she says.

    She acts the same all trips, my attitude is what changes.


  2. Lots of wisdom here.
    The cool thing is when we realize that in fact, we do have a choice – a choice to be grateful or bitter, angry or forgiving. We do not need to get upset about people or things as a natural default. Choices are ours for the making. How cool is that.
    I wrote something similar in a recent post in my ‘sunflowers’ series. Don’t know if you had a chance to read it. If not, here is the link:
    Thanks for sharing, and have a wonderful day!


If you have something to say I'd love to hear from you.
