SUCCESS CAPSULE: CHOOSE


"The long I live,” says author Chuck Swindoll”,the more I realize the impact of attitude on life" ."Attitude to me.” he says,"is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think or say or do. Attitude is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, or a home.

Dear friend, the good thing is that we have a choice regarding the attitude we will embrace. Attitude is not a gift.  It is a choice.

A research was carried out on employees who lost their jobs in one hundred companies and it was discovered that most of them lost their jobs due to a negative attitude. You see, it is not always what happens to us that hurt us, it is how we respond to them that hurts us.

Arnold Palmer, renowned golfer, has a framed plague on the wall of his office, it reads;

If you think you are beaten, you are 
If you think you dare not, you don't               
If you'd like to win, but think you can’t
 It’s almost certain you won't         
Life's battles don't always go to the stronger of faster man     
But sooner or later, the man who wins
Is the man who thinks he can.                                     
 (Anonymous)                       

Dear friend, take control of your thoughts and your feelings today. Philippians 4:6 says;”Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God”

When your attitude changes, circumstances will change for the better.
