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, education, than
money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than
what other people 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 every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that
day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact people
will act in 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% of what happens
to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you…We are
in charge of Attitudes.

others. In doing so, you will attain these goals for yourself. A
paradox, but it works.

Let your faith become a life-style, not just an intellectual
