A very successful businessman talked to my marketing class last semester. He quoted Charles Swindoll and said,
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important 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 church a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we embrace for that day.
We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one thing 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 our ATTITUDES. - Charles Swindoll
I hope to live with this motto in mind in the upcoming year. Have a fabulous 2006!!
