Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude
It’s your attitude, not so much your aptitude, that determines your altitude.Zig Ziglar
The statement “Your attitude determines your altitude” is so true. It’s true whether looked at as a positive statement or a negative one. If we want to rise to a higher level in any environment we find ourselves, it will be the level and quality of our attitude that will determine that higher level. We attract that which we portray. We attract that which we focus on. Now the question is, “what do you want to attract?”.
We are the sum total of the 5 people we hang around the most. Those people, including ourselves, have a huge influence on our attitude. Like attracts like and who we hang around is who we’ll be like. If we hang out with “Drama personified” that’s what we’ll become. If we hang out with people moving in a positive direction, always striving to be better today than they were yesterday, then that’s what we’ll become.
Every good thing in life has to be purposely pursued. Purposefully and intentional, daily discipline to be better will lead to the good things in life. The truth is, we choose our attitude every single day.
Success is something you attract by becoming an attractive person.Jim Rohn
Success in life and success in business hinges largely on our attitude. Current customers, clients, friends, colleagues, and all the potential ones will ultimately not want to stick around if being around us is a chore. A chore, in the sense that it’s hard, maintaining a positive attitude when people are around you. If we want to be a positive influence in life and business then we have to be willing to put in the daily effort to change in a positive direction.
For things to change for you, you have to change. Don’t wish it was easier, wish you were better.Jim Rohn
Great leaders ask great questions. In life’s circumstances and battles we find ourselves in and even the good times, we can always ask questions to “re-frame” the situation or, at least, make it a better outcome next time. Ask questions like, “What could I do differently next time?”, “What did I learn from this?”, “Is there something that I can change about me to change future outcomes?”. These are just a few of the questions you could ask. Determine some other questions for yourself.
There are so many directions we could go on attitude but, I’ll finish with this for now. We are the maker of our destinies. And, it will be our thoughts, our attitudes, and our actions that will determine our course. With that being said, choose your course wisely and forge great attitudes that will be the guide in every thought and action you take.
