"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, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, 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 everyday 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% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes."

-Charles R. Swindoll

It can be so easy to get bogged down in the negative of what's around you and allow your attitude to suffer. I am a big believer that attitude can make or break a person whether it be in terms of spirit, relationships, goals or even a career. A great attitude can be not only personally helpful and allow you to get through a tough day or an unfortunate circumstance. A positive attitude can also be professionally appealing; many marketing professionals have told me that a great attitude can create a pleasant work environment that produces energy, creativity, and team efficiency.

By choosing a positive attitude, much like the positive side of a magnet, you'll draw good things toward you.
