a good reminder...

"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 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% w hat 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 quotes (American Writer and Clergyman, b.1934)

while i was on my mission, i had this quote in my planner. i read it probably 3-4 times a week. i love it! i believe in having a good attitude and the direct result that attitude will play in your life!
