Positive Attitude

“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, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, 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 everyday 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% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.” – Charles R. Swindoll

Our attitudes define us. Attitude is a matter of our choice. Our attitudes often determine the outcome of our actions, which, of course, are fueled by our attitudes. Very often, we can even turn situations around simply by changing our attitudes. Below is a presentation that I made some time back, which is based on words penned by Wanda Hope Parker. A simple, yet practical approach to shaping our attitudes. Hope you like it.
