About this author

Some people are able to overcome dire circumstances and others are not. How much is determined by genetics and how much by one's environment? My question is based upon my true life story:

My mother was a hooker who turned tricks every day in our tiny apartment.

My sister "came out" as a lesbian, long before it was acceptable, and was thrown into a convent and then a mental hospital for evaluati... Read more of this blog post »

BookBunnyPR: AUTHORS for January Buddy Read 39 136 Jan 06, 2014 01:53PM  
Charles R. Swindoll
“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.”
