positive attitude is everything

A positive attitude is everything when it comes to success.

Zig Ziglar said it this way over and over again: “A positive attitude won’t give you everything you want in life, but it will bring you more than negative thinking will.”

A positive attitude is everything when it comes to success.

Former Boston Red Sox all-star third baseman Wade Boggs said: “A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It’s a catalyst that sparks extraordinary results!”

A positive attitude is everything when it comes to success.

Olympic gold medalist Scott Hamilton kept it short and sweet: “The only disability in life is a bad attitude.”

A positive attitude is everything when it comes to success.

The Importance of a Positive Outlook

My favorite positivity quote comes from Charles Swindoll:

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 failure, 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 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.

YOUR response affects your outcome, NOT the events in your life!

A Positive Attitude IS Everything When It Comes To Success

Our attitude has a tremendous impact on who we are, what we do, and who we become. Sow an attitude, reap an action. Sow enough actions, reap a habit. Sow a habit, reap your character and your future.

Bottom line, our attitude today determines our character tomorrow.

One more time… a positive attitude is everything when it comes to success.
