Is your attitude pulling you down? Are you an optimist, glass half full, or a pessimist, glass half empty?
We have all experienced ups and downs in life. How we deal with them is what is important. How do you handle them? Do you say this business is not going to work? If so, you’re letting your attitude get in the way! When we set our minds to the negative side, we are bound for failure.
Think about the most successful person you know! Ask yourself this, how did that person become successful. Was it because they took every failure and said, “I quit, this will never work.” Of course not, they analyzed what went wrong, learned from it, and made sure they did not make that same mistake twice. Their attitude was not to fail!
“The satisfaction and happiness you derive from life depend on your aims, attitude, and actions. Those who wait for life to supply satisfaction and happiness usually end up with boredom and sorrow instead. ”
Take a moment and answer these questions.
1. Do you believe the only way to prosperity is to work harder?
