A Choice of Attitude

I have long kept this quote from Chuck Swindoll where it would occasionally pop up as a reminder in my task management software. Words to live by that are especially useful when life is challenging;

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. 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 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 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% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you … we are in charge of our Attitude.”

  • Chuck Swindoll

What are the circumstances you’re facing today that can benefit from a change in perspective? A change in your reaction? A choice of your attitude?
