What are the grammatical structures of the "The longer I live" and "The more I realize" in the following sentence?

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.

Also, why is it "on life"? Why not "in life"?

"In life" can be used to describe the context of a statement (e.g. you won't get far in life...), but "on life" specifies that life is affected by attitude. Attitude has an impact, and life is the thing being impacted.
