Attitude

Michael Hyatt

Gratitude is where every positive attitude starts. Negative emotions such as anger, fear, and sadness dissipate the moment you begin to be thankful. What can you be thankful for right now? Be thankful for everything you can possibly think of…

Frank Crane

Here are ten resolutions to make when you awake in the morning.
They are Just for One Day. Think of them not as a life task but as a day’s work.
These things will give you pleasure. Yet they require will power. You don’t need resolutions to do what is easy.
1. Just for Today, I will try to live through this day only, and not tackle my whole life-problem at once. I can do some things for twelve hours that would appall me if I felt I had to keep them up for a lifetime.
2. Just for Today, I will be Happy. This assumes that what Abraham Lincoln said is true, that “most folks are about as happy as they make up their minds to be.” Happiness is from Within; it is not a matter of Externals.
3. Just for Today, I will Adjust myself to what Is, and not try to Adjust everything to my own desires. I will take my family, my business, and my luck as they come, and fit myself to them.
4. Just for Today, I will take care of my Body. I will exercise it, care for it, and nourish it, and not abuse it nor neglect it; so that it will be a perfect machine for my will.
5. Just for Today, I will try to strengthen my mind, I will study. I will learn something useful, I will not be a mental loafer all day. I will read something that requires effort, though and concentration.
6. Just for Today, I will exercise my Soul. In three ways, to wit:
(a) I will do somebody a good turn and not get found out. If anybody knows of it, it will not count.
(b) I will do at least two things I don’t want to do, as William James suggests just for exercise.
(c) I will not show any one that my feelings are hurt. They may be hurt, but Today I will not show it.
7. Just for To-day, I will be agreeable. I will look as well as I can, dress as becomingly as possible, talk low, act courteously, be liberal with flattery, criticize not one bit nor find fault with anything, and not try to regulate nor improve anybody.
8. Just for Today, I will have a Programme. I will write down just what I expect to do every hour. I may not follow it exactly, but I’ll have it. It will save me from the two pests Hurry and Indecision.
9. Just for Today, I will have a quiet half hour, all by myself, and relax. During this half hour, some time, I will think of God, so as to get a little more perspective to my life.
10. Just for Today, I will be Unafraid. Especially I will not be afraid to be Happy, to enjoy what is Beautiful, to love and to believe that those I love love me.

May I be magnanimous with good opinions instead of being characterized by a critical spirit. Everyone I meet is fighting some kind of a battle. Help me to be gentle with the people placed in my path – in my actions, words, and attitudes.

Charles Swindoll

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitudes we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past…we cannot change the fact that people will act 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…I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you…we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Dennis and Wendy Mannering

Attitudes are contagious…Is yours worth catching?

John Maxwell

People’s attitudes determine how they approach life day to day.  Your attitude, more than your aptitude, will determine your altitude.

Albert Einstein

Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.

G.K. Chesterton

An inconvenience is only an adventure wrongly considered; an adventure is an inconvenience rightly considered.

Charles Dickens

Reflect upon your present blessings, of which every man has many — not on your past misfortunes, of which all men have some.

Thomas Jefferson

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

William Arthur Ward

A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition.

Mark Twain

Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.

Patrick Henry

A leader must lead. Where others see obstacles, he must see opportunities. When others see problems, he must see possibilities … Civilization is not built on a negation but on an affirmation- an affirmation of the bright and promising possibilities that the future holds for those who are enterprising enough to pursue them.

Dale Carnegie

It isn’t what you have or who you are or where you are or what you are doing that makes you happy or unhappy. It is what you think about it.

Winston S. Churchill

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.

Lou Holtz

Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.

Martha Washington

I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.

G.K. Chesterton

We are perishing for want of wonder, not for want of wonders.

Tony Dungy

You can’t always control circumstances. However, you can always control your attitude, approach, and response. Your options are to complain or to look ahead and figure out how to make the situation better.

Marcus Aurelius

The soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.

W. Clement Stone

There is very little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude.
