You can’t control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you you.

Brian Tracey

April 30th - Change your attitude and change the world.

It’s not what happens to you, but how you react to it that matters.


Our attitudes to what happens is something we have control of.  Attitude is everything !  

Don’t worry about things you cannot control.  Think about what you do have control of and that is your attitude.

You can’t prevent a storm from happening, but you can prepare for them. You can’t control how someone else behaves, but you an control how you react. When you put your energy into the things you can control, you’ll be much more effective.

We can influence people and circumstance but we can’t force things to go our way. And while we can plan a good party, we can’t force people to have fun.

The phrase, Make it Happen, reminds me I’m control of my actions.I’ll either do what I an to make it happen or deal with the things I have no control over.

Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you have power over instead craving control over what you don’t.  

Steve Mariboli 

The most amazing thing about our attitude is that we have complete control over it.  We are the ones that decide how we feel, how we look at things, how we react.

Your thoughts and perception of the world influence all that you eo, and all that you are, and all that you can be.  Changing your attitude is changing the way you see things.  To begin the change, you must start looking for the good in every situation, rather than the negative.  There are times you may have to look hard to see the good but when you find it, then focus on it.  Keep it in the front of your thoughts.  Thinking about the good will keep your mind away from being angry, from feeling sorry for yourself, from reacting in the wrong manner.

The choice is always ours.  You will be amazed how much life changes when you change your attitude.  You can do incredible things!

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

Winston Churchill

These days I'm looking for the good in a contractor who left and unfinished job -- and hasn't been back. At least we hadn't given him any $ yet, so there's that!
I keep saying, tomorrow's another day!

While mining here I found this gem:

Thanks again for the good reminders you drop daily. The above I need to keep in my mind more and more.
Love to you sweet lady, we do enjoy the visits to your house.
