Attitude

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 success, than what other people think, say or do.

It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company…a friendship…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… The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude.

It is like flying a kite. Lulos lulos kapag malakas hangin. Pulon pulon kapag mahina ang hangin. (NOTE: Lulos is our word in my hometown for unwind the string, while Pulon is rewind the string into its spool)

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.

Be happy. Think positive.

And always have an attitude of humility.

“I have a dream I want to see come true.  I won’t give up, no matter what I do. If there’s a long, long way I have to go. I’ll keep run, run, running this I know. I’ll keep run, run, running, chasing my dream. If there’s a big high mountain I’ve got to go up. I’ll keep climb, climb, climbing to the top” – Jack Hartmann
