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, 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 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 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 Attitudes”

  1. It’s really good insight – a positive or negative attitude can make or break you. It makes me think of a sassy child ‘don’t give me that attitude!’ – in many respects its difficult for both child and parent to grow from the situation with their attitudes- the child because they are being too stubborn to listen and the adult because the expect respect and don’t try to be empathetic to the situation.

  2. Someone at work has the 10%/90% line posted in their office. It’s so true, we can choose how we react to stuff. Well, provided we’re aware of our choice. So many of us don’t realize until later on how much power over ourselves and our emotions than we thought we had.

  3. Oh how true this message is!

    It’s fruitless to try and control life – it’s a force that can’t be tamed. What do have the power to control is our attitude, which influences our thoughts, which influence our actions.

    Empowering post Bella!

  4. impressive poem, thanks for sharing this gem Bella … that 10-90% ratio has been taught in workshops for many decades but planting it in this beautiful poem makes it memorable again!
