Pensar ( Wednesdays with Mirante)

What's Good?
Hey guys I really got allot of my questions answered today by a mentor of mine. I can comfortably accept his advice because he has fought against adversity such as myself. I look at his success as something I can Acquire if I change my attitude and outlook on all the potential that God has given me. We spoke about happiness and how it is truly treasure and that there is a major difference to when getting something by cheating and when actually working hard for it. He gave me some poems and words of encouragement. I feel obligated to share this with you guys because most of us are still struggling with life whether it's school, work or home.

"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. It will make or break a company... a church... 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... 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% how I react to it.
And so it is with you... we are in charge of our attitudes." - Charles swindoll
