“Attitude”

2 Sep

The principal at my school included a sheet with this quote on it in our start-of-the-year folders. It’s a quote I’ve always loved and it’s been quite useful to me this past week as I deal with the stress that naturally comes with a new teaching position. Because of this, I thought I would share it here for all of you.

“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 everyday 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 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.”
