Our attitude has a lot to do with how we experience life. It serves as a lens through which we see life, and it's best when that lens is focused on a positive environment and possibilities. Our attitude can enable us to make the most of difficult situations, as well as finding and creating enormous value in our world.
There is absolutely nothing that forces us to adopt one particular attitude over another. When we get in the habit of consciously choosing to have a positive, empowering attitude, we become free to achieve the things that are most meaningful to us.
Our attitude is always ours to determine. Doesn't it make sense to select an attitude that will foster peak performance and effectiveness no matter what may be going on around us?
Don't let anyone or anything else control something as critically important as your attitude.
Martha Washington (1732-1802) said, “I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.”
Now, and always, choose an attitude that will enable you to soar high and have great success.
