Power of Attitude

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 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 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 and your life.

We are in charge of our ATTITUDES!

Negative Attitude:
Every 60 seconds you spend angry, upset or mad
is a full minute of happiness you'll never get back.
(unknown philosopher)

Positive Attitude
“I've learned that people will forget what you said,
people will forget what you did,
but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
(Oprah Winfrey)

The “Win or Lose” Attitude
from The Girl Who Played with Fire...
a novel written by Stieg Larsson.

“Then came the moment that every boxer has experienced with dread.  The feeling that could turn up any time in the middle of a bout.  The feeling of just not being good enough.  The realization that you are about to lose.  That's the crux of almost every fight...the moment when strength drains from you and the adrenalin pumps so hard that it becomes a burden and surrender appears like a ghost at ringside.  That's the moment that separates the pros from the amateurs and the winner from the loser."

"Few boxers who find themselves at the edge of that abyss,
manage to turn the match around, turn certain defeat into victory. 
Paola Roberto was struck by this insight.”
