“Attitudes are nothing more than habits of thought, and habits can be acquired. An action repeated becomes an attitude realized.”A� Paul Meier
Nothing in this world can stop the man with the right attitude and nothing can help the man with the wrong attitude unless he decides to change. We all have an attitude whether we are aware of it or not, attitudes that have developed throughout the course of our lives. It is these attitudes whether positive or negative that largely determines how far we go in life and who helps us as we go in pursuit of our dreams.
Let me put this as clearly as possible – no one is responsible for your life but you!A� You are ultimately responsible for how your life turns out, and it is your attitude that helps to shape things, for better or worse. Each of us create our own life largely by our attitude.
Have you ever seen two people, born and grown in the same circumstances (leta��s say poverty) – they start life the same way with no means yet one of them end up prosperous and the other remains in poverty for the rest of their life?
What made the difference? One developed the right attitude for life while the other lacked it. It is their attitude that separated them.
I read James Allen’s book, ‘As a Man Thinketh’ in 2010 and have read it nearly seven times after that. Allen wrote, “people are anxious to improve their circumstances but are unwilling to improve themselves; they thereforeA� remain bound.”A� It is our attitude that keeps us bound not our circumstances. Therefore we should be anxious to improve our attitudes so we can be improved.
Having the wrong attitude is like driving with the emergency brake up, the car is moving but it will not drive at its maximum speed because something is holding it back.
Our attitude tells the world what we expect in return. You get what you expect. The good thing is you can control your attitude. Set it every morning. The world will reflect the attitude you present to it. It is then our attitude towards life that determines lifea��s attitude towards us. Our life is a mirror, people treat us how we treat them, they react to us how we react otc viagra cvs. to them and our surrounding reflects us.A�
What we give we get, what we sow we reap. Don’t blame, complain or argue about your circumstances, focus instead on changing you, remember your life is a reflection of you, if you don’t like the answer that life is giving you change the question. Jesus puts it this way, by your faith it is done unto you. The problem is always us we have to change ourselves for our circumstances to change.
So develop the right attitude today. Put aside money to buy books that will help to develop you as person. Listen to audio books and attend seminars that focus on positive self-development. Develop yourself and as you become better you will begin to attract better people in your life and opportunities will show up for us.A�A�A�A�A�A�A�A�A�A�A�A�
Jim Rohn once said, “work harder on yourself than you do on your job. If you work harder on your job you will make a living, but if you work harder on yourself you will make a fortune.a�? Start today by becoming the best you can so you can be an asset to someone; your wife, husband, children, friends, employee and the world.
William James said, “human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind.a�?
