A positive attitude is a
passport to a better tomorrow.
When you experience
a negative circumstance or event, do not dwell on it. Be
proactive--put your attention on what you need to do to bring the
situation to a positive result.
Your mental attitude
is something you can control outright and you must use
self-discipline until you create a Positive Mental Attitude--your
mental attitude attracts to you everything that makes you what you
are. -Napoleon Hill
world has a way of giving what is demanded of it. If you are
and look for failure and poverty, you will get them, no matter
you may try to succeed. Lack of faith in yourself, in what
life will do for you,

Expect victory and you make victory.
There is so much about my
fate that I cannot control, but other things do fall under the
jurisdiction. I can decide how I spend my time, whom I
interact with, whom I share my body and life and money and energy
with. I can select what I can read and eat and study.
I can choose how I'm going to regard unfortunate circumstances in
my life-whether I will see them as curses or opportunities.
I can choose my words and the tone of voice in which I speak to
others. And most of all, I can choose my
thoughts. -Elizabeth Gilbert
When you choose to be pleasant and positive
in the way you treat others, you have also chosen, in most cases,
how you are going to be treated by others.
There are two types of
people--those who come into a room and say, "Well, here I
am!" and those who come in and say, "Ah, there you
are." -Frederick L. Collins
You can't always
control circumstances. However, you can always control your
attitude, approach, and response. Your options are to
complain or to look ahead and figure out how to make the situation
better. -Tony Dungy
Some days there won't be a song in your
heart. Sing anyway. -Emory Austin

Waldo Emerson, "Worship," The Conduct of Life
God is always more
interested in why we do something than in what we do.
Attitudes count more than achievements. -Rick
Warren, The Purpose Driven Life
An attitude of positive
expectation is the mark of the superior personality.
in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and
through people. Every dollar we will ever earn must come
from people. The person we love, and with whom we want to
spend the rest of our life, is a human being with whom we must
interact. Our children are individuals, each different from
any other person who ever lived. And what affects them most
is our attitude--the loving kindness they see and feel whenever we
are around them.
If you'll begin to develop and maintain an attitude
that says yes to life and the world, you'll be astonished at the
changes you'll see. -Earl
people don't realize is that we can change our attitudes
towards life. It takes some work, but it can be done. The more
we accept other people and their faults and quirks, the less
judgmental we become. The more we decide to share the goodness
that's within us, the less selfish we become, and the less likely we
are to hoard or hang on to material things. The more we learn
about other people's emotional or physical problems, the more
understanding and compassionate we become. Your
one of your gifts to the world, all day, every day. What kind of
gift do you give? And is it a gift that remains steady
no matter what happens to you? -tom walsh

Motivation determines what you
Attitude determines how well you do it.
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 everyday 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 percent what happens to me
and 90 percent how I react to it. And so it is with you. . .
we are in charge of our attitudes. -Charles
It is easy
enough to be pleasant,
when life flows by like a song.
But the person worthwhile
is one who will smile,
when everything else goes wrong.
pessimist is one who makes difficulties of
his or her opportunities;
an optimist is one who makes opportunities of his or her

way a thing
will be because we act according
to our expectations. -Federico

If you don't enjoy getting up and working
and finishing your work
and sitting down to a meal with
family or friends, then the chances are
you're not going
to be happy. If someone bases his or her happiness
unhappiness on major events like a great new job, huge
amounts of money,
a flawlessly happy marriage or a trip
to Paris, that person isn't going
to be happy much of the
time. If, on the other hand, happiness depends
on a good
breakfast, flowers in the yard, a drink or a nap,
are more likely to live with quite a bit of happiness.

begins with you, personally.It is in the way
you look at things.It is the mental stance you take
as you face your day.It is finding magic in things. It is talking with people and discovering their inner goodness.
It is the thrill of feeling a part of the life around you.The attitude
of adventure will open things up for you.The world will
become alive with new zest and meaning.You’ll become
more aware of the beauty everywhere.Nothing will seem
unimportant.Everything will be revealed as having pattern and purpose.
