is a state of mind; our mind is like a garden and our thoughts are the seeds. We
can grow flowers or we can grow weeds. A great attitude becomes a great mood; a
great mood becomes a great day; a great day becomes a great year; a great year
becomes a great life.
bad attitude can literally block love, blessings, and destiny from
finding you. Don't be the reason you don't succeed.
Yes, our life is a
creation of our mind which is like a parachute, it does not work, if it is not
open; it is like an umbrella in the rain, it won't protect us unless it is fully
opened. We have to take care of our thoughts when we are alone, and take care of
our words when we are with people.
is not the problem. The problem is our attitude towards the problem.
The first place we
lose the battle is in our own thinking. If we think it will happen then it will
happen; if we think we have reached our limits then we have. We have to change
our thinking. We need to see everything that is holding us back, every obstacle
and every limitation as only temporary.
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 than the past, education, money, than
circumstances, failure, successes, than what other people think, say or do. It
is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It could make or break a
company, organization or a home. However, the good news is, we have a choice
everyday regarding the attitude we decide to embrace for that day.
We cannot change our
past, we cannot change the fact that some people will act in a certain way; we
cannot change the inevitable; the only thing we can do is play on the one string
we have, and that is our attitude. I do believe that life is 10% what happens to
us and 90% of how we react to it. We are in charge of our attitudes.
