“ATTITUDE” by Charles Swindoll


(I feel a bit of a hypocrite to be posting this since I am not a churchgoer, nor have I ever listened to this man’s Radio sermons. However I’ve always loved these words that he wrote.)

“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 the fact that people will act 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.”

A corollary statement: Life (or success) is 10% inspiration and 90% perspiration.

I totally agree. Sometimes we all need an attitude adjustment.

Really good words, Ginnie. I do think that my attitude is all that I can change. And maybe that may rub off on someone else.

These days "Attitude" seems to have a very different meaning.

I love this Ginnie. And I believe it too. If only everyone could have an attitude of happiness, love and gratefulness,what a wonderful world this would be. Love Di ♥

Absolutely true. You cannot help what happens to you - but you can always control your attitude and reactions to it.
