How To Have a Great Attitue

Greet Each Day with a Smile

“Attitude” to me, is more important than circumstances, more important than successes or failures. What it is, is how I want to approach the world and how I want the world to approach me.

The winning attitude is not about what other people think or say, it is not in appearances, giftedness, or skill. Each and every day we have a choice, its all about how are we going to embrace the day. Do you choose success or do you just settle for the status quo.

I know that I can not change the past and I can not change how other people will act. But the one thing I can control, is my attitude. And with a little help of some extraordinary people in this Hub of inspiring quotes I share here, I can only wish that you find these words as motivational as I do in using the one thing I know I have, and that is positive attitude.

Keep your face to the sunshine, what a a positive thought.

The words of Theodore Roosevelt ring true. No one can make you feel inferior without your consent. Married to a president, she was one lady that worked hard at making people feel good about themselves. During WW2 she championed the idea of African American Airmen combat pilots. On her own after the war she was a great spokesperson for the creation of the United Nations. She did alright. Nice hub.
