At Hyde, attitude is pretty much everything. This piece on attitude by Charles Swindoll can be commonly seen and heard around our campuses:
“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 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.”

3) Where has it controlled me?
4) Who among my peers might I acknowledge as having a positive attitude?
