I believe that if we keep our
faith, we are grateful, we trust, the
right attitude, God opens up new doors
for us. Attitude is more important than
the past, than education, than money,
than circumstances, than what people do
or say. It is more important than
appearance, giftedness, or skill.
We cannot change our past. We
cannot change the fact that people 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. Choosing to have positive and
grateful attitude determines how we are
going to live our life. I have learned
that people will put restrictions on our
ability, on our natural ability, on our
talent, on our character; let us not
allow anyone to put us in a box or draw
our path for us.
We don't see things as
they are; we see them as we are.
- Anail Nin
Nothing can stop us from
achieving our goal if we have the right
mental attitude; and nothing on earth
can help us if we have the wrong mental
attitude. I have learned to change
something if I donít like it; and to
change my attitude if I cannot change
something. Each of us has to seek out
our own special ability or a higher life
in the midst of the humble and
inevitable realty of daily existence.
A great attitude becomes a great
mood; which becomes a great day,
which becomes a great year;
which becomes a great life.
It is our attitude, not our
natural ability or aptitude that
determines our altitude, what we can
accomplish. We cannot always have a good
day but we can always face a bad day
with a good attitude. I always try hard
to train my mind to see the good in
everything. It is a positive choice that
I believe my happiness depends on the
quality of my thoughts. I believe that a
trusting and a patient attitude go hand
in hand. Patience is not just about
waiting for something; it is about how
we wait; it is our attitude while
waiting. It is in trusting God that we
become more patient.
