The game changing spark is attitude. In reality, attitude is more important than what is happening around us, our appearance, our skills and everything else. It has the power to make or break us.
Picture anyone who has achieved success. You can bet that at some point they had to choose to overcome something, and it took attitude. That’s the remarkable thing, not only is attitude the key, it is a choice. It may be a difficult one, but it is a choice.
We cannot change what we, or others, have done. We cannot change our histories. What we can change is our attitude, and with that our reactions. I am reminded of a saying, “Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it”.
When faced with daily challenges, it is our reactions to people, thoughts and situations that have the greatest impact on results. The most powerful people are those who have learned to manage themselves, and, by doing so are able to manage their reactions. This is where our true power lies. It’s all in our attitude.
