"Attitude is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than what people do or say.
It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.
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 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."
Charles Rozell "Chuck" Swindoll is an evangelical Christian pastor, author, educator, and radio preacher.
