Simple Wisdom Tip #54: Check Your Attitude

I recently came across this old quote by Charles Swindoll that I think is terrific.  It is a great reminder as we charge into another fresh, spring of life that is full of opportunities.  See what you think.

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude, to me, is more important 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 the day.  We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact 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.”
