Attitude

November 10, 2010

This is quote by Charles Swind0ll.   I had wanted to post it to the Face book page however it is too long to post there. I have decided it is so interesting and true that I wanted to use it in full as a blog. Please let me know what you think of it in the comments section here.

“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, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, 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 every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will react in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the 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”

Hello world!

April 26, 2010

Welcome to my new Blog. I will be writing about the work of F.M. Alexander (1869-1955) his discoveries and his philosophy for personal change, growth and use of our conscious thinking in all areas of life. Alexander was most interested in the individual and the capacity for a person to attain the highest refinements of self-development possible. His work is inspiration itself and he dazzles us with his logic and clarity of mind.

I will also be writing about Voice and how our habits of speech and singing both for the professional (Public Speaker, Clergyman, Actor, Singer) and the layperson can benefit from this man’s work.  A beautifully modulated speaking voice is a great asset in life and the capacity to speak is itself, the single most important aspect of being human. It defines us. Each person has a unique timbre and manner of speech for good or ill based largely upon habits.

I hope this Blog gets my readers thinking in new ways and looking at life from a broader view than most of us have been taught to do. I look forward to you writing back and sending your ideas and comments.
