I’m a big believer that our successes and failures in life have a lot to do with our attitude. While we can’t control the things that happen to us, we can control how we react and whether or not we will learn from our challenges or let them break us down.

I could speak about the effects my attitude had on my life for days, but I’ll leave this one up to the experts.

Check out what Pastor Charles Swindoll had to say about it:

“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.”

Do you have the right attitude for success and happiness?
