"Attitude ... is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do ... 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."
Your attitude will make or break our school. You have a choice every day regarding the attitude you will embrace for that day. The one tool we have to deal with others is our attitude. Life is 10% what happens to us and 90% how we react to it. You are in charge of your ATTITUDE.
