A is for Attitude
Because no matter how much knowledge you have, and how intelligent or strong or determined or beautiful or… you fill in the blanks…you might be, if your attitude is not in line with your goals, you are probably not going to be very successful. And no matter how little breaks you get, how little money, or time, or support, or equipment, or friends or … you fill in the blanks… you might have, if your attitude is one of a winner, you are certainly going to make it.
Success doesn’t have much to do with great circumstances or genes; success is really all about how you see yourself, your progress, your goal, your future. It’s really all about how you think about all these.
I wouldn’t say that I am a Ghandi fan, but these words of his pretty much sum up what I think on the matter: “Keep your thoughts positive because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive because your values become your destiny.”
If you think yourself a loser, that is where you will go, even if all the odds are in your favor. And if you think yourself a winner, well, that is what you are. Your life is truly the sum of your thoughts; you and I are what we think we are.
Let’s be careful out there…
