How’s Your Attitude?
When was the last time you heard a message so encouraging that it had you soaring, perhaps even laughing out loud? Chuck Swindoll’s message, “Taking on Life with a Great Attitude,” draws its inspiration from the life of Caleb, who trusted God’s promise and, at the age of 85, said, “I’m still as strong today as I was. . . . Give me this hill country” (Joshua 14:11–12). Caleb’s faith reminds us that when we choose to follow the Lord, we can expect victory—and our attitude should show it.
This set includes Chuck’s message on CD, as well as an 8”x10” color print, a coffee mug, and a bookmark, all displaying Chuck’s legendary “Attitudes” quote. When you face a tough set of challenges, these words will remind you that a great attitude can make all the difference!
The longer I live, the more I realize the importance
of choosing the right attitude in life.
Attitude is more important than facts.
It is more important than your past;
more important than your education or your financial situation;
more important than your circumstances, your successes, or your failures;
more important than what other people think or say or do.
It is more important than your appearance, your giftedness, or your skills.
It will make or break a company. It will cause a church to soar or sink.
It will make the difference between a happy home or a miserable home.
You have a choice each day regarding the attitude you will embrace.
Life is like a violin.
You can focus on the broken strings that dangle,
or you can play your life’s melody on the one that remains.
You cannot change the years that have passed,
nor can you change the daily tick of the clock.
You cannot change the pace of your march toward your death.
You cannot change the decisions or reactions of other people.
And you certainly cannot change the inevitable.
Those are strings that dangle!
What you can do is play on the one string that remains—your attitude.
I am convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to me
and 90 percent how I react to it.
The same is true for you.
