We've long believed that outlook and attitude are important, which is one of many reasons we have had an Inspiration blog on our MHProNews.com site since early on. I had this clipping in a notebook, and during our recent packing to move process, saw this and felt it was an ever timely item to share.
The following is quoted from Texas A&M Coach Bob Starkey's “Hoop Thoughts” website.
"The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, then circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, say, or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.
The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you. We are in charge of our attitudes."
I can see why a coach would love this quote, don't you? Why not share this with your peers and colleagues and remind them that:
manufactured housing is about half the cost of conventional homes, according to the U.S. Census Bureau statistics.
That incomes are down, but expectations go on for the American dream of home ownership.
10,000 are retiring daily, and many of those don't make enough to make ends meet on.
We could give a host of reasons why we ought to have a good attitude, but the fact is that attitude comes from within, not without. Do you see the glass as half-empty or half-full? Start looking for the good, start making the most of what you have every day.
Eagles fly high, its chickens that don't fly.
Attitude can make or break you or a team member, so it truly does determine someone's altitude. ##
