STOP AND THINK – You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you. (Brian Tracy, Canadian author on personal and business success)

This is not a new idea, but it is certainly important for all of us to understand and apply. A lot may happen to you in life that you don’t like and can’t control. Trying to take control often doesn’t work for you. But if you can control your attitude, Tracy says, “You will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.”

You were taught . . . to put off your old self . . .  to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God (Ephesians 4:22-24)
