Attitude is everything…

Good morning. It has been a snowy weekend up atop the mountain, and with that brings a lot of discontent in the distance running community. Just when the trails were starting to open up again, they’ve been recovered by a fresh layer of snow. Most runners don’t like it.

A long time ago I was given a handout of team policies. One thing that particularly stood out to me was the notion of control. There are just things we can’t control, and we’ve got to roll with the punches and succeed in the face of anything. The attitude you take in life is going to be a key component of your happiness, as such, I thought it would be a good idea to kick the week off with a great piece on 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 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

Make it so,
Carson Boddicker
