Your attitude to life and your goals is everything. A great quote from “Three Feet From Gold” by Sharon L. Lechter and Greg S. Reid is :
“10% of your attitude is determined by what life hands you and 90% by how you choose to respond.”
Reading about the athletes in the Paralympics in London this year, the one thing which stood out was the way they chose to handle being disabled. Many of them had accidents which meant they lost limbs but they decided to embrace life and carry on regardless. They could just as easily have decided life was unfair and become negative and resentful but instead they chose the opposite.
All of us have a choice as to how to respond everytime something bad happens. Learn to choose the positive aspect, to carry on whatever the setback and we will overcome all obstacles thrown in our way.
Choosing to be positive means that our attitude is always upbeat and we know we can achieve our goals whatever happens.
