I hope you all read this - - - someone much smarter than me put it down for us all.


"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 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 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.

EXCELLENT posting, george!! I could not agree more! Too often folks wanna play the "victim" role when bad things (or bad people) happen to them! Yes, there are TRUE victims in this world who were no way responsible to what happened to them, but even true victims have a responsibility in how they react and respond to bad things.....you can use tragedy as a crutch or a way out OR you can use it to make you stronger and as a learning tool!! :D :D
