The Impact of Your Attitude...

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Gold DRE# 01437147

I came across this quote recently and I really liked it, so I thought that I’d share it with you…

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.  Attitude, to me, is more important than the 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 percent what happens and 90 percent how I react to it.  And so it is with you – we are in charge of our attitudes

Thanks for sharing this Randy. I really needed it today. Attitude is important in every facet of life, and dictates how we deal with life as it comes to us.
