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.
