It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult undertaking which, more than anything else, will determine its successful outcome.
William James quotes
My pacifism is an instinctive feeling, a feeling that possesses me because the murder of men is disgusting. My attitude is not derived from any intellectual theory but is based on my deepest antipathy to every kind of cruelty and hatred.
Albert Einstein quotes
The spiritual attitude of a man to a god and a dog to a man.
Ambrose Bierce quotes
The art of being yourself at your best is the art of unfolding your personality into the person you want to be. . . . Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude toward ourselves can we have the right attitude toward others.
Attitude is the way you mentally look at the world around you. It is how you view your environment and your future. It is the focus you develop toward life itself.
Your mental attitude gives your entire personality a drawing power that attracts the circumstances, things and people you think about most!
Every issue, belief, attitude or assumption is precisely the issue that stands between you and your relationship to another human being; and between you and yourself.
Just remember all...that words are powerful, so very powerful, that it can change attitudes (for the better or for the worse), with or without provocation. They can be triggers, reminders, movers, and emotives...Be kind with your words and listen to positive messages in things that we have in common... Communication in the ways that make a positive impact and even possibly profitable (new friendships, good feelings, etc.) for all parties, is the key.
Any fact facing us is not as important as our attitude toward it, for that determines our success or failure. The way you think about a fact may defeat you before you ever do anything about it. You are overcome by the fact because you think you are.
Ability is what you're capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
