Occasionally in life you have the privilege and good fortune to have a relationship with a special person who influences you. Tim Larkin did that for me and many others. He recently passed away. Tim was a lifelong friend, mentor, business associate and role model. He was always optimistic, enthusiastic, energetic, and willing to take time for others no matter how busy he was or what you needed.
He was one of the very good guys in life. I could go on; however, I want to share with you one of his favorite topics,as captured by Charles R Swindoll, well known pastor, radio host, and author.
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 that the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, 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, or a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we 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 plan on one thing that we have, and that is our attitude.
Tim personified a positive attitude in business and life, and he manifested it with an unabated respect for people and focused on helping them achieve their potential.
People do make the difference in our life and business!
