Everything about success and failure comes very close to being about attitude. People have been known to succeed with very little else. Attitude is what sets the stage for what we want, or expect, to happen. A cheerful, expectant attitude, says to the world that we expect the best in our dealings with everyone we come in contact with. Our actions, moods and feelings determine the actions, moods and feelings of others. The best news of all is that our attitude is something we can control. Whether or not we realize it, we can and do establish our attitude each morning when we start our day. And all the people we come in contact with throughout the day- family, friends, co-workers, customers- reflect back to us the attitude we present to them.
No wonder the saying goes: Life is like a mirror; it reflects back whatever image we present to it.
