You are in Control of You

I’ve kept this quote hanging on a bulletin board in my home for more than 15 years. It is a timeless truth. Read it and live it. 

“Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, 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.” 
Charles Swindoll (Strengthening Your Grip; Words/Insight for Living)

One thought on “You are in Control of You

  1. Patriciam McCardy

    I remember reading a paragraph from Goethe that said “You are the decisive element. It always reminds me that I have a choice of how I am going to react to anything and everything. It always allows me to approach each hurdle with a choice as to how it is going to affect me, my day and the way I move forward with my family and friends. Attitude is everything
