One of the main success factors is attitude. Not only is attitude a vital component in any and all success one reaps it’s also a powerful contributor to most failures in our lives. In a recent article written by Rev Bob Gass I read the following “How many jobs do people lose every day because of poor attitudes? How many are passed over for promotion because of the way they approach their work and the people around them? End of quote. At one time in my life I belonged to this group and lost job after job and with every loss my self-pity increased. Change only happened when my attitude changed, and this only happened when I had hit the bottom of the failure pit, it’s there I found God who told me to smarten up and change my attitude. I did and was able to eventually start my own business and prosper for more than 40 years. The lesson? Attitude is a choice!
Chuck Swindoll writes: “Attitude, to me, is more important than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It’s more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home. We cannat change our past…we cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play the one string we have, and that is our attitude. “ end of quote.
It’s our attitude that determines how we react to the challenges of life. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Good Attitude – Good results. Poor attitude – Poor results. If you’re currently reaping poor results I suggest you examine your attitude and if it needs changing – change it.
Instead, let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes. –Ephesians 4:23
