When Ken walked out of his home last Friday he had no idea what this day would hold. Ken had worked at this job in the steel factory for 30 years; so walking out of the door had become something he, no doubt, took for granted.
Ken started to work that morning in a part of the factory where no other people were working. All of a sudden the steel i beams began to shift. The next thing Ken knew 25,000 pounds of steel was on his legs. Since no one was around he pulled out his cell phone and called 911.
It wasn't long before the other workers in the shop saw the police cars etc pulling up to the factory. They ran to the back to see what was going on. Much to their horror they saw Ken pinned under 25,000 pounds of steel.
Ken was rushed to the hospital where both of his legs had to be amputated above the knees.
The following day Ken's boss went up to the hospital to see him. When he asked, "Ken, how are you?" Ken smiled and replied, "Well, I'm shorter than I was yesterday."
Now I say this is a "Wow Attitude!" We may not be able to control every situation and it's outcome, but we can control our attitude and how we deal with it.
Ken's "Wow Attitude" is a perfect example of living this out.
