Take the right path to good attitude leading you to success!
Do you know what attitude does? It can make or break you. If your attitude is one of very little self-confidence it can cause you to think you can't do anything. You may think you are not capable of great things because you always fail. You know what that does to you? It makes you fail. It is not that you can't do it. It is that you have set yourself up for failure by believing you would fail right from the start! We all know those people who act cocky like they are the best and they seem to have a lot of success. We look at them and say they are lucky. Everything goes their way. Does it? Or is it that they believe in themselves? They believe they won't fail and will be successful. So they are!
How do you develop that attitude in the first place? Some people are lucky enough to have had parents who instilled that attitude in their children right from the start. You know those parents who always told their kids they could do anything? Then there were the kind of parents who held their children back. They would tell them "Oh you can't do that," for whatever reason. Sometimes it was a teacher who developed that positive attitude in a student. Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said he had a teacher light a fire under him, and he went from having absolutely no self-confidence, to being known for positive thinking world wide!
If you don't have that attitude you can develop it no matter how old you are. You can teach yourself to think positive. You can read positive thinking books. I highly recommend the books written by Norman Vincent Peale, Zig Ziglar, Donald Trump, Anthony Robbins and The Bible. You can go to seminars, listen to audio books in your car and view dvds about becoming a success. But, remember all the books and seminars can't make you really believe in yourself...............you have to do that yourself!
Today, make a little list of five, only five good things about yourself. You don't have to share it with anyone. Just yourself. And they have to be GOOD things. Read it in the morning when you first get up. Then every night look at it again, and add another attribute about yourself. I am sure you will discover many good things about yourself as you work on this little exercise. It is just the beginning, but I am sure you will start to understand what I am talking about.
