Empower Yourself with Attitude

Thursday, April 09, 2009


"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. 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% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you . . .we are in charge of our Attitudes." Anonymous


"You have choice. You can select joy over despair. You can select happiness over tears. You can select action over apathy. You can select growth over stagnation. You can select you. And you can select life. And it's time that people tell you you're not at the mercy of forces greater than yourself. You are , indeed, the greatest force for you." Leo Buscaglia

"I am not bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to the light I have." Abraham Lincoln

"Remember. . .there is a deeper strength and an amazing abundance of peace available to you.
Draw from this well; call on your faith to uphold you. You will make it through this time and find joy in life again."
"Life continues around us, even when our troubles seem to stop time.
There is good in life every day. Take a few minutes to distract yourself from your concerns---long enough to draw strength from a tree or to find pleasure in a bird's song."
"Return a smile;
realize that life is a series of levels,
cycles of ups and downs--
some easy, some challenging.
Through it all, we learn;
we grow strong in faith;
we mature in understanding.
The difficult times are often
the best teachers, and there is
good to be found in all situation.
Reach for the good.
Be strong, and don't give up." Pamela Owens Renfro

"I am not discouraged, because every wrong attempt discarded is another step forward." Thomas A. Edison (He should know --it took him a thousand some attempts to create the light bulb)

A focused light can cut through anything!!!

    i agree that attitude goes a long way- how true this is "life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it."

    I love it! These are wonderful quotes. I absolutely agree, attitude (positive or negative) is so important. That is why I enjoy being a part of the Thanksgiving Community.

BTW, thanks for stopping by my page and your encouraging words.

Happy Easter!
