Attitude… Well worth repeating, plus comments at the end.
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. To me, attitude 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 think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church and a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitudes we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past; we cannot change the fact that people will act a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The ONLY thing that 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!”

This is likely MORE important today than it was in his day (1934), likely due to population shift/growth, Speed of communications, Global Marketing and Internet Marketing.
Likely further enhanced buy the stress levels of the entire global population, including (apparently) all of the animal kingdom.
