Building Your Desired Future 2 What’s your attitude to life? • 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 What Choices are You Making? • 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. • 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 attitude. Let’s begin the conversation
