Control Your Attitude


Uncertainty is a part of daily life, but at times like this uncertainty can be fraught with a greater level of apprehension and fear.

For most of us, these things can be tidied up with the thought of “this too shall pass.”

Amidst the uncertainty of tomorrow, I have decided to play on the one string that I can, and that is my attitude.

ATTITUDE — The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me 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 attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past . . . we cannot change the fact that people will act in 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.

In closing, allow me to also share with you this Chinese proverb – “Life is an echo. What you send out, comes back.”

      Powerful statement indeed Bachir.

      Life is an Echo’s an Echo of your own doings . It’s reflects what you do good or bad, so it’s better to help others, respect elders, love others because from that you will get more of what you gave others.

      Absolutely Karolina. Attitude is everything. Your attitude determines how much success you can achieve in all aspects of your life. … Your attitude is also one of the first things people notice about you and impacts all the business and personal relationships you will have.

      The importance of attitude is that it is the basis for everything in our lives. Our attitude determines how we react to adversity, our ability to grow and to learn, our ability to overcome challenges, and create bonds with others.
