Is attitude everything?

Post by Guest »

"The longer I live, the more I realise 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 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 thing 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. . .."

I thought this was a provocative(?) thought inducing quote. Is attitude everything?

On talking about it on my site there was mentioned that some people seem to have a pre-occupation with other people's lives.

My reply was that I had noticed the pre-occupation by some, with another's life. This might also be true and could be applied for those who watch the 'Soaps' on TV. There are those few people, which seem not to be unable to differentiate(sp) between the fictional character portrayed and the real life actor.
