Everything depends on attitude. We are ambitious or
or dull, loyal or undependable, according to our attitude. We get good
grades or poor grades--according to our attitudes. Discouragement is an
attitude. Lack of industry is an attitude. Failure to follow instructions
is an attitude.

Thinkers - the people behind the words
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 percent what happens to me
and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you. . .
we are in charge of our attitudes.
