Who said, "Life is ten percent of what happens to you and ninety percent of how you react to it."?

Found at least a few attributions for this one. I think I'll have to go with Swindoll.

"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 everyday 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 that we can do is to 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, from Strengthening Your Grip

Life is ten percent what happens to you and ninety percent how you respond to it.

Attitude ranks second in my personal philosophy, KASHEM.

Knowledge
Attitude
Skills
Habits
Experience
Motivation

When I was in sales training for life insurance the company used the KASH formula. I modified it over the years and added experience and motivation to suit my personal needs as deer hunter.

I am no longer a salesman but a negotiator. Pyrons Funnel is used as a model for integrative (problem solving) negotiations.

Information getting

Results from Laura Moncur's Motivational Quotations

In the attitude of silence the soul finds the path in an clearer light, and what is elusive and deceptive resolves itself into crystal clearness. Our life is a long and arduous quest after Truth.
Mahatma Gandhi (1869 - 1948)

Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
William James (1842 - 1910)

I happen to feel that the degree of a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic.
Lisa Alther, Kinflicks, 1975

The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind.
William James (1842 - 1910)

A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.
Patricia Neal
--------------------------------

When I was growing up it was really difficult to develope a productive attitude about work. The first money that I ever earned was from selling walnuts that my brother and I picked up in our home town. We had stored the nuts in the back of a pickup truck and my Dad hauled the load to a buyer. We watched the buyer run the nuts through a hulling machine and bag them up. He weighed the nuts and paid us for the net weight of the shelled nuts. We earned about $3.50 gross (for a truck load). It didn't take us long to spend $1.75 that had taken us hours to earn. Since walnuts are harvested in the fall we decided try our hands at grave digging. It took us ten hours to dig a 6' grave and we earned $6.00 gross for our labor. That was the first and last grave that I ever dug. :mrgreen:

Try to realise it's all within yourself
No-one else can make you change
And to see you're really only very small,
And life flows on within you and without you.

We were talking-about the love that's gone so cold and the people,
Who gain the world and lose their soul-
They don't know — they can't see — are you one of them?
When you've seen beyond yourself — then you may find peace of mind
Is waiting there —
And the time will come when you see
we're all one, and life flows on within you and without you.
— George Harrison
