A Little Thing Called Attitude

 

I often read Acts of Faith by Iyanla Vanzant.  Over the years, it has helped me to put things into perspective.  I’ve read this book every year from the time it was introduced to me by a coworker over ten years ago.  Since you only read a page a day, the insights stay new and refreshing.  Each time I read something it feels like I am reading the book for the first time.  Acts of Faith is organized by daily passages that are separated into four categories: self, world, others, and money & abundance.  Today’s passage is such a good topic that I wanted to share.  Each page starts with a quote or a saying.  Today’s quote is:   

There is really a very little difference between people; it is called attitude; and it makes a really big difference.  The big difference is whether it’s positive or negative.   

~ W. Clement Stone   

Oh, how right Mr. Stone is!  I think we all could use an attitude adjustment from time to time.  A poor attitude not only stops your personal growth, but hinders the development of your personal brand.  People will not see what you truly have to offer because their vision will be blinded by your poor attitude.  All experiences, whether negative or positive, teach us lessons.  Some lessons are harder to learn than others.  But, we should not let those tough lessons sour our attitudes.  Yes, I know.  Having a positive attitude at all times is very much easier said than done.  Just remember, a little goes a long way.  Ask yourself, could I use an attitude adjustment?  And one more thing, friends don’t let friends walk around with bad attitudes!  ;o)
