What's your attitude?

Happy Friday Y'all!
I'm borrowing a post from a friend, Jay Strickland today.
Thanks Jay. I enjoyed the post very much and felt that it was worth repeating to my blogging friends as well.

Is your Attitude Affecting your Altitude?
The following is written by Chuck Swindoll on the subject of attitude. I believe this captures the most critical predictor of success and the most easily changed element to turn away from failure as a foregone conclusion. Is your attitude affecting your altitude?

“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 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 every day 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% how I react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our attitudes.”

Lot's of party pictures next week and don't forget about The Nester's Christmas Tour of Homes on Monday!!

  1. That's one of my favorite things from Chuck Swindoll. I have used that in speeches, and I never get tired of reading it. Thanks!
