Attitude

You can change your attitude without any muscular effort. You don’t need any money, time, fuel, space or other resource. You don’t need anyone else’s permission. You don’t need a detailed plan of action for changing your attitude. It’s not complicated. You don’t even need a lot of experience.

You can instantly change your attitude. When you do, you’ll discover that there’s a significant amount of leverage in that attitude. A small change in your attitude can make a big change in your world, in much the same way that a small change in the direction of a ship’s rudder can make a big change in the ship’s final destination.

So how is your attitude today? Is it anything less than entirely positive? What possible reason could you have for maintaining a negative attitude? It makes no sense to be negative, when there’s no cost or effort involved in maintaining a positive attitude.

Develop an attitude that lets your setbacks move you forward, an attitude that turns your weaknesses into strengths and your mistakes into wisdom. You’re already moving full speed ahead. Make sure your attitude guides you to the desired destination.

— Ralph Marston
