Fact Or Fluff...

The longer I live, the more I realise 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, that 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 social group or a home.

The remarkable thing is, we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the past... we cannot change the fact that people will act 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 all in charge of our attitudes!
