The importance of attitude

I doesn't matter what you do for a living, there are going to be days when just getting up is a challenge. Today is one of those days for me. I have such a sore throat, I can barely speak. And tired? I've already had 4 naps.

Yet one must persevere. We don't attain worthwhile results by lying around in bed.

Here's what I used to motivate me this morning...

"Attitude is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearances, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is, you have a choice every day regarding the attitude you 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 enevitable. 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 is 10 percent what happens to me and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you...
