Attitude Matters




“Believing in negative thoughts is the single greatest obstruction to success.”
Charles F. Glassman

Your attitude determines the state of the world you live in. It is the foundation for every success and every failure you have had and will have. It will make you or break you. Your attitude controls your life. But the good news? You control your attitude.

Each of us has an overall pattern of thinking that is either positive or negative. The pattern you choose affects every aspect of your life. First of all, your basic attitude affects your belief in your potential for success. A negative attitude causes you to doubt your ability to achieve, while belief in your potential makes you willing to take the necessary action for success.


Attitude gives us the power to become who we want to become, and determines who others think we are. You are where you are and what you are because of the dominating thoughts in your mind. Your mental picture of yourself determines the measure of confidence you bring to using your potential and working toward your goals.


Regardless of who you are, beginning at an early age everyone is insulted, left out, taken advantage of, and discounted by others. And to add to the burden, uncontrollable, negative events naturally happen in life as well. Once you have a bad attitude, you expect failure and disaster. And that expectation turns you into a magnet for failure and disaster.


However, when you make the decision to view your world with an attitude of gratitude, you are training yourself to focus on the good in life. Take control of your attitude, your state of mind, and you take control of your results.


As I start each day, I try to remember the words of Winston S. Churchill ….“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”

“Our beliefs about what we are and what we can be precisely determine what we can be”
Anthony Robbins
