Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

The One Thing We Can Change
by Charles R. Swindoll

As a wise man is strong, 
and a man of knowledge 
increases power.
Proverbs 24:5

This may shock you, but I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. 

It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me, or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. 

The attitude I choose keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. 

When my attitudes are right, there's no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.

Yet we must admit that we spend more of our time concentrating and fretting over the things that can't be changed than we do giving attention to the one that we can change—our choice of attitude.
