I sat in my room going through stuff on YouTube and stumbled on a comic that stated, ‘life is all about attitude’. It did not make much sense to me until a friend made this statement, “the older we get, the more our attitude becomes the driving force of what happens in our lives”. Hey bro! Life is all about attitude; it always had been and always will be about attitude.
Last time I wrote about “The Log in Your Eyes”, now I would be linking it up with “Attitude” and I have come to a conclusion that we must make a positive mental shift in attitude in order to conquer whatever life throws at you. As the dictionary defines it, attitude is a way of talking and behaving. However, its significance in our lives is much more. Every day, it’s our decision to choose what attitude to live by; the only difference between a good and bad day, is your attitude. We definitely can’t change our past, nor can we change something inevitable but we are capable of getting better solutions to situations through the right attitude.
Attitude determines outcome. The truth must be told, be it a doctor about to carry out a surgery on a patient, or a businessman launching a new venture; their attitude to work and to other people creates that winning edge for them. Attitude reflects behavior; one’s attitude towards another determines the other person’s attitude to him in return. In a nutshell, I feel attitude is more important than facts; it is more important than the past, education, money, circumstances, failures, or successes. I am strongly convinced that life is, only 10% of what happens to you, and 90% of how you react to it.
Attitude commands respect, positive attitudes make dreams come true. In life people may hear your words, but they feel your attitude. Be observant before you speak; think before you act. Life is not all about you but it’s all about your attitude towards other people.
