Attitude determines altitude, so take the steps needed to make yours great!
It’s not just a cliché, your attitude really does determine your altitude. So, take action now to get an attitude that leads to success. Your success and your attitude are both things you control. Think about it, you have very little control over other people on the planet.
Anyone who has ever attempted to parent a child or manage a staff has a clear understanding of just how difficult it is to control those others. However, your attitude about others and your reaction to what others do is completely within your control. Since these things are in your control, step up, stand firm, and adopt the attitude of a successful victor in all you do.
When your attitude is right, those around you see it and will recognize success is coming your way.
A few summers ago my daughter, who was a college sophomore, got her first “real” job as an administrative intern at a great company. She got to work early each day and stayed late most evenings. My daughter worked hard at her job and she was well compensated. She did such a great job her boss offered her additional employment opportunities. Her boss, who was a smart, determined, and powerful woman, took my daughter under her wings and mentored her. None of this would have happened without my daughter having an attitude for success.
The attitude for success is not something that comes naturally with age or experience. It is not something that appears by chance. The attitude for success shows up when a person decides to have it. The attitude for success is free of charge and available to all who want to have it. So, step up and claim your attitude for success. If you do, success itself will follow.
In your life at home and at work, your attitude determines the results if your actions.
When you wake up each morning, the world is before you, waiting to see what you have to offer and what you will give. You can choose to offer an attitude of gratitude for the adventure that is life. You can choose to have a bad attitude and think only misery and failure are your travel companions. You can choose to have an attitude for success and then work towards that success. In the end, both choices actually require the same amount of work. If that is the case, doesn’t it make sense to have a good attitude and expect greatness to come?
It is important to realize that you have a choice. You determine your view of the world. Your view of the world is not limited by what you see when you open your eyes. When you close your eyes and dream things it makes no sense to dream, that is also part of your view. If you limit your view merely to the things you can see with your eyes, you lose a great deal. Instead, take a bigger look at the world, get a bigger attitude and win.
When you truly understand that your attitude determines your altitude, you understand that your destiny is in your hands. That means you can achieve what you dream, no matter the obstacles in your path if you get the right attitude.
All this means the question for you this magnificent day is, when are you going to take action now and get an attitude for success?
