“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 R. Swindoll
I would like to try this,however I think most of my daily habits in the realm of my " I can'ts" stem from some very deep rooted core beliefs about myself. Would this help,or should I try something else?

Wise words my friend, thank you for sharing. It is sad how people can become slave to themselves, if they only realised that the 90% of lives experiences, that they create (with their reactions), was something that is purely in their power.
It is something that is completely malleable by their own will.edit on 7-3-2014 by iRoyalty because: (no reason given)
The trick isn't some magical, new ager, mystical hogwash but simple mind over matter. Your mind can create your reality and being happy, for the most part; I know life isn't always roses but being happy is a state of mind and a choice! I'm not suggesting that you can use your mind to change the reality that the desk you’re sitting at isn't really a desk but a new sports car but how you interpret the images and sounds that are the inputs to your mind can help you begin to see opportunities where previously you thought there were none; the nay sayer will always find reasons for why an opportunity is not as good as it promises to be. Remember that not every opportunity will eventuate in the desired outcome, but never following an opportunity will ensure you never get anywhere you desired.
I don't think you can do that all by yourself. I've got the Spirit, the Spirit is my potential.

This is so true ! It's not always so easy to do or practice though. I will push myself harder.
I gota remind myself all the time...especially when I'm going through hard times...
Your post is inspirational, Thx. :-)
