The Strangest Secret was a recording by Earl Nightingale, and in a nutshell, the secret was…
“You become what you think about. Negative thoughts reap negative results. If you think positive thoughts, you will get positive results.”
In many ways, we’re alike; however, one little difference almost always makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude.
William James, over a century ago, said, “The greatest discovery of this generation is that a human being can alter their life by altering their attitude.” What most people fail to realize is that your attitude not only impacts your happiness and your success, it also can impact the happiness and success of all the people around you…your family, your friends, and your peers at work. Attitudes truly are contagious, and from time to time we need to ask ourselves…”is mine worth catching?”
There is no way to overstate the importance of a positive attitude in your life. However, no one can underestimate the difficulty in maintaining it. It’s not easy, and it’s a very personal thing, but it can be done.
