It’s All in the Attitude

April 29, 2007 at 7:11 pm (My ramblings, School)

I am playing catch up on my homework since I was unable to do any last week. I am taking a leadership course and one of the books we are reading is John Maxwell’s book, The Winning Attitude. I have learned so much and this is an area I have really been trying to work through. He says, “the attitude is an inward feeling expressed by behavior.”
Here are a couple of snippets that I wrote out on an index card and taped to my computer screen at work:

Our attitude:

  • Determines our approach to life
  • Dictates my performance
  • Determines our relationship with people
  • Is the only difference between success and failure
  • At the beginning of a task will affect its outcome more than anything else
  • Can turn our problems into blessings
  • Can give us an uncommonly positive perspective
  • Is not automatically good because we are Christians

How’s your attitude today?
