The power of attitude

The longer I live, the more I realize the power of my 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 say or do.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home, a family or friendship.

 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, the one string we have control over and that is our attitude. I'm convinced that life is 1% what happens to me and 99% how I react to it.

NOTE: Please remember to choose your attitude carefully because 1) It's contagious, it'll affect people or infect them(especially children). 2) Your emotions can definitely be positively effected by choosing a positive attitude/outlook. 3) You will enjoy life more and those around you. I encourage you to test it out for yourself!
