Attitude

“What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude toward it. Every opportunity has a difficulty, and every difficulty has an opportunity.” ~J. Sidlow Baxter

“When the character of a man is not clear to you, look at his friends.” ~Japanese Proverb

“Any food can criticize, condemn, and complain but it takes character and self control to be understanding and forgiving.” ~Dale Carnegie

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind” ~William James

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, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, 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 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% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.” ~Charles R. Swindoll

“It’s not stress that kills us, its our reaction to it.” ~Hans Seyle

“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” ~Brian Tracy

“When anger rises, think of the consequences.”

“He who loves his work never labors.” ~Jim Stovall
