Attitude is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, then education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success,
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 home, a relationship.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for the day.
We cannot change our past.
We cannot change the fact that other 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.
