Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitude toward life.  The longer I live, the more convinced I become that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we respond to it.

I believe the single, most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude.  It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position.

Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress.  It alone rules my fire or assaults my hope.  When my attitudes are right, there’s no barrier to high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.
