"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, say or do.
Your Attitude is more important than appearance, your talents or skills. It makes or breaks a company...a church...a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day what attitude we chose to 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. We could only change our attitude about all of the above.
All we can do is play 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. The same applies to you.Charles Swindol said "Take charge of your attitude and see your life changing"
When my son was diagnosed with autism the doctor told us to give up on him and go have other children. He also told us to prepare our child to live in a group home setting for the rest of his life.
So I played my one string of attitude, took responsibility and changed our lives forever. Today, my son studies abroad, he is honor student, speaks four languages, he is world traveler with a wanderlust for cultures and experiences, and overall great son. He is planning to attend college and start his own business.
