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 become more than you ever dreamed. You have greatness within you … and your attitude is the key to unlocking that potential. Changing my attitude changed my life. And if a better attitude can work miracles in my life, it can work miracles in yours!
I’d like to share with you these words from Dr. Charles Swindoll, who captured the essence of attitude—and how it dominates the direction of our lives.
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 or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company … a group … a community… a home. You can follow some of these points to change your attitude too.
1. Success begins in the mind
2. You should watch your words
3. Stop complaining
4. Associate with positive people
5. Confront your fears and grow
6. Get out there and fail
7. Keep trying till you accomplish your goal
8. Turn your problems into opportunities
9. Take active steps to change your dreams into reality
10. The power of attitude can change your destiny.
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 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 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you … we are in charge of our Attitudes.
Pretty powerful words, aren’t they? Do what Charles Swindoll suggests and “play on the one string you have”—your ATTITUDE.
Now is the time to take control of your attitude.
Now is the time to start creating miracles in your own life.
Go ahead—believe in yourself. Have the courage and persistence to follow your dreams. And above all, never, never forget that … Attitude is Everything!
