An excerpt from his book..
“I got shot. What’s your problem?”
Does that sound sardonic or terse or dismissive? I don’t mean it that way. I did get shot – and it is my problem. A .38 caliber bullet fired at point-blank range, slammed into my chest, clipped my lung, narrowly missed my heart, and lodged in my spine; paralyzing me from the chest down – and I had to deal with it. I still have to deal with it every day. That is my problem.
Now, what is your problem? What do you have to deal with today – or every day? Do you have something lodged in you – maybe not in your spine, but perhaps in your heart or mind – that causes you pain and makes you feel paralyzed one way or another?
What position are you taking relative to your problem? In other words, what is your attitude relative to your situation? You see, in my book, attitude is a position not a mood; and it is the position we take toward our circumstances that turns bad days into good days.
Are you tired of people in wheelchairs talking about attitude?
Well, don’t put this book down, because what it says about attitude will rock your world.
Okay, maybe it won’t rock your world, but it will change your world – at least it will change the way you look at things…
…and that will rock your world.
