The longer I live the more I realise 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. It’s more important than failures and successes than what other people think or say or do. It’s more important than knowledge, appearance or skill.
It will make or break a company, an institution, a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice regarding the attitude we will embrace every day, today in fact.
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 believe that life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it.
We are in charge of our attitudes.
