“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind.”

~William James

 

A 'Yes' Face 

During Thomas Jefferson's presidency he and a group of travellers were crossing a river that had overflowed its banks. Each man crossed on horseback fighting for his life.
A lone traveller watched the group traverse the treacherous river and then asked President Jefferson to take him across.
The president agreed without hesitation, the man climbed on, and the two made it safely to the other side of the river where somebody asked him:
"Why did you select the President to ask this favour?"
The man was shocked, admitting he had no idea it was the President of the United States who had carried him safely across.
"All I know," he said, "is that on some of your faces was written the answer 'No' and on some of them was the answer 'Yes.' His was a 'Yes' face."
"The most significant decision I make each day is my choice of an attitude. When my attitudes are right there's no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme and no challenge too great."

- Charles Swindoll

 

“I discovered I always have choices and sometimes it’s only a choice of attitude.”
