Attitude (From Bali With Love)

Below is a poem that I had to learn, memorize and recite for my 10th grade English class. I think about it often and this week, it crossed my mind again so I wanted to share it with you all. 

Attitude is more important than facts.
It is more important than the past, than 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, every day 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.
- Charles Swindoll

Thoughts? I hope you enjoyed it. Now, go into the world with a beautiful and positive attitude.
