Attitude by Charles Swindoll

The following inspirational quote is about attitude 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 other people think or say or do.

    It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will 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 the past … we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.

    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.”

When my attitude is good, everything is better. And I have learned that I can only control myself, especially my attitude. My attitude is best when I practice gratitude for everything I have now, had in the past and gratitude for what will be provided to me in the future. The saying, “Attitude is everything” is so true.

Try looking on the bright side and having a good attitude from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep and you will see a difference … a positive difference.
