X factor is your attitude..

“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, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, 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 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% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.”

I totally agree with this Jah. This is the exact lesson that I am called upon to impress on my teenaged daughter right now who is thinking of quitting her boarding school because she thinks everybody hates her there. I keep telling her its not what people think of you that is important but how you react to it. I tell her not to bother about people who don't really mean much in her life but to think of those who really matter, your parents, your siblings, your teachers. Wallahu'alam bissawab.
