  1. Attitude
    by Charles Swindoll

    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 others 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 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.

  3. Living Positively
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    We may not realize it, but the building blocks of our life
    Are those little attitudes that lie within our mind.
    Positive or negative, they are ours to hold and use,
    As we approach each day without fail or excuse.

    They shape our souls and guide us through our path in life,
    So make sure your outlook is one full of joy and light.
    The peace you gain will be yours throughout the days,
    As living positively leads you in many ways.

  5. Your Attitude
    by William Arthur Ward

    Great persons rise above adversity and attain new heights of achievement by
    Turning tribulations into triumphs,
    Failures into fortunes,
    Setbacks into successes,
    Obstacles into opportunities,
    And burdens into blessings.

    They refuse to be hampered by handicaps,
    Dismayed by discouragements,
    Overcome by opponents,
    Defeated by disappointments,
    Or destroyed by disasters.

  6. Our disposition, more than our position, affects our present happiness and future contentment.

  7. Age And How You See Things
    by William Arthur Ward

    Regardless of age, you are still young at heart

    As long as you exclaim:
    Instead of
    "What's the use!" . . .

    When you say
    "Hot dog"
    Instead of "Oh well" . . .

    When you yell,
    Instead of "So what?". . .

    When you contend
    "Everyone's important"
    Instead of
    "You can't fight City Hall" . . .

    When you insist
    "Folks are swell"
    Instead of
     "You can't trust people anymore" . . .

    When you greet others with
    "What a great day to be alive!"
    Instead of
    "The world is shot to pieces". . .

    When you proclaim
    "What an opportunity"
    Instead of
    "What a predicament."

  9. Interruptions
    by William Arthur Ward

    Interruptions can be viewed as sources of
    Irritation or opportunities for service,
    As moments lost or experience gained,
    As time wasted or horizons widened.

    They can annoy us or enrich us,
    Get under our skin or give us a shot in the arm.
    Monopolize our minutes or spice our schedules,
    Depending on our attitude toward them.

  10. Today's attitudes are the seeds of tomorrow's disposition - and of next week's habits.
    Positive Thoughts

  11. What You See
    Poet: Henrietta R. Eliot

    For what you find in these sweet days,
    Depends on how you go about it;
    A glad heart helps poor eyes to see,
    What brightest eyes can't see without it.

    One child sees sunlit air and sky
    And bursting leaf buds, round and ruddy;
    Another looks at his own feet,
    And only sees that it is muddy!

  13. Look Up
    Poet: Unknown

    I saw a little muddy stream
    That turned to fairest blue,
    Because the surface caught the gleam
    Of heaven's azure blue.

    And so this life, whatever it be,
    Might turn to heaven fair,
    If we would lift our eyes and see
    The beauty everywhere.

  15. The Biggest Difference
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    What makes the biggest difference in someone's life?
    The person's attitude for sure
    It can be positive and optimistic
    Or, it can be negative, and close every door.

    Your attitude can be one that is
    Down, complaining, and blue
    Or you can find the little things
    That brings happiness that's true.

    You can be contented with life
    Or you can always be wanting more
    You complain how life's not fair
    And find everything a bore.

    What do you focus your attention on
    Will determine your attitude
    Focus and find the positive
    Live with gratitude.
