Where's the Storm?

It has been said that the smallest of boats is safe in the roughest of seas, just as long as none of that rough sea gets inside that small boat! Developing an attitude that attracts success is an inside job. you see, having a godly attitude does not mean you will never face problems or storms.

I can't remember who wrote it, but an old poem I came across went something like this:

One ship sails east
and another  sails west,
While the selfsame
breezes blow.
But it's the set of the sail
and not the winds
That determines
where it will go.
And as the storms rage on,
as we journey through life,
It will be the set of our hearts
that determines where we go,
Not the storms or strife.

Your attitude is the set of your sail. You must choose the direction you want your life to travel and set your heart accordingly. There will be storms, but it will be your attitude toward those storms that drives you in one direction or another, not the storm itself.

Each of us will be surrounded with problems at times, and we will often find ourselves steeped in hot water. But remember that the event will soon pass. The event is temporary, but the effects of how we respond in the midst of the event will last much longer. A poor attitude in the midst of the storm can cause the storm to rage inside for a lifetime.

(From Wayne Cordeiro's "Attitudes that Attract Success")

I'd love to know what you think of this post:
