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.
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.
Age And How You See Things
by William Arthur Ward
Regardless of age, you are still young at heart
As long as you exclaim:
"What's the use!" . . .
When you say
Instead of "Oh well" . . .
When you yell,
Instead of "So what?". . .
When you contend
"You can't fight City Hall" . . .
When you insist
"Folks are swell"
"You can't trust people anymore" . . .
When you greet others with
"What a great day to be alive!"
"The world is shot to pieces". . .
When you proclaim
"What an opportunity"
"What a predicament."
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.
