The fact is, things happen to us each and every day that we have no control over. Ultimately the impact that any of those outside situations has on our life depends on how we react and respond to them.
We can choose to sit and dwell in the 10% of our life that we can’t control and stay stuck in our past trapped by our harmful habits. Or, we can focus on improving the 90% of our life that we can control which is our thoughts and actions. By doing this we can radically alter the quality and the trajectory of our lives.
“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
