Attitude is Everything from the Book: Lists to Live By
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.
Your attitude determines what you think about facing a challenge.
People with a negative attitude see a challenge as overwhelming or threatening. A positive attitude lets you see a challenge as an opportunity rather than a threat.
Your attitude determines your confidence.
People with negative attitudes have so often thought I can't or I doubt that belief in their individual potential is nonexistent. Each time you act from a positive attitude, your self-confidence is enhanced, your ability to achieve is proven, and you know you can succeed.
Your attitude affects how you see opportunity.
People who have a negative attitude have buried the ability to see opportunity. A positive attitude, by contrast, opens your eyes to so many opportunites that your challenge becomes which opportunity to choose.
