Updated on November 9, 2013

Attitude is the way and manner a person think, this has a whole lot to do with who or what you will become in life.

Your action in life is driven by your thought; though: thoughts are the introduction of possibilities, if you can think then you can act it.

Your life is like a plain paper that is blank, you have to draw, write a plan of what you want it to be, which it must be.

Attitude determines altitude (height of achievement).

Your change of success and process in life is determined mostly by your attitude to the INEVITABLE adversities and opposition that comes your way or MUST come your way!

There are three things about a winning attitude:

  • Enthusiastic attitude: having great eagerness, Strong interest or admiration
  • Expectant attitude: hopeful, expecting the best even when the worst is presented before you
  • Grateful attitude: Expression of thankfulness, gratitude and appreciation

David display the winning attitude in him when he volunteered to fight Goliath, even when people thought he was too young and not as skilled as Goliath (I Samuel 17:33) he believed with his God on his side, he could defeat him.

Listen to this: Sir Edmund Hillary is the first man to reach the top of the Mount Everest. He achieved this great feat in 1953 but that was not his first trip up the great mountain.

The first time in 1951, some of his fellow mountaineers died. Shortly after, a dinner was organized in his honor by the British parliament and there was a huge picture of the mountain place inside the hall.

Edmund Hillary looked at the picture, shook his fist at it and said with a breath of confidence:”You won this time.

You’re as big as you’re ever going to get…I’m still growing.” That is a winning attitude! A winning attitude never gives up in the face of failure, delay or ridicule.

The Bible say a righteous man will fall seven times and rise again “Success is never final and failure is never fatal. It’s courage that counts” (John Wooden).

Never give up until you conquer! Always have it in mind, you will definitely get there, though you are not there now.

Always laugh by force, which is a winning attitude! No matter this year has been, keep trusting God and remain positive! Hold on and hold out!

    Praise the LORD! I liked how you listed the three attitudes: enthusiastic, expectant, and grateful - and we can only have these attitudes because of our wonderful LORD and Saviour Jesus Christ. Because of Who He is, and because of what He has done, and because of what His Words says, we can have these attitudes - and it is also only with a humble heart that we can be enthusiastic, expectant, and grateful because out of His great mercy and love for us, we know that He is.
