What Determines Where You Are Going?

Posted: March 17, 2012 in Motivational

To put the world right in order, we must first put the nation in order; to put the nation in order, we must first put the family in order; to put the family in order, we must first cultivate our personal life; to cultivate our personal life, we must adopt the right attitude towards all that comes our way. I know much has been said about attitude and how it determines your altitude and the way it also determines your character. I know scholars have down on books and articles just to expose this animal attitude and how much it can do to our future and also present. And today i want to add to your library of Attitude and hope that you will either adopt a positive attitude today or you will continue having the positive attitude or you will share this with a friend whom you think needs to change his or her attitude.

Success or failure depends more upon attitude than upon capacity. Successful men act as though they have accomplished or are enjoying something. Soon it becomes a reality. Act, look, feel successful, conduct yourself accordingly, and you will be amazed at the positive results.” -William James

In the movie, A Bronx Tale, the kid, Calogero ‘C’ Anello, makes a statement near the end in which he says, “The saddest thing in life is wasted talent, and the choices that you make will shape your life forever.” The ability to do or be anything you want in life is a lesson sometimes learned much later then early.

Do not fool yourself into believing you have no abilities to achieve great things. There is quite a bit inside each of us, inside of you, that given the right frame of mind can propel you to greater heights. It all happens with a huge positive attitude inside.

Think of the iceberg floating out in the large open sea. The area above the water may appear small with only enough capacity to carry a few seals. Aimlessly it drifts with the ocean currents, ships avoiding contact where possible. But underneath the iceberg is an immense structure of ice that goes mostly undetected.


That huge area underneath is your attitude. It can be a negative one or a positive one. Its your choice on what its going to be. A negative attitude will keep you floating aimlessly, never achieving much of anything in life. A positive attitude will propel your abilities to greatness.

We always tend to under estimate the power of our attitude. It can be the difference between languishing in an unsatisfying job position and having a very fullfilling work life. It can be the difference between being lonely forever after a divorce to finding a new life filled with love and happiness.

It can be the difference in everything.

Now let us finish by looking at very interesting facts here:

If you would assign each alphabet a number respective to its position this is what you would have;

 A for 1

B for 2

.

.

.

Y for 25

Z for 26

Let us look at some parameters that most people think determine success but in the real sense they don’t.

1. Knowledge – if you right the word knowledge and assign the individual letters their numbers this is what you will have.

K = 11
N = 14
O = 15
W = 23
L = 12
E = 5
D = 4
G = 7
E = 5
Total 96 points

2. Hardwork – if you right the word hardwork and assign the individual letters their numbers this is what you will have.

H = 8
A = 1
R = 18
D = 4
W = 23
O = 15
R = 18
K = 11
Total 98 points

Now if we look at the word attitude this is what we get.
A = 1
T = 20
T = 20
I = 9
T = 20
U = 21
D = 4
E = 5
Total 100 points

A Young student approached the famous French scientist and philosopher, Blaise Pascal, and declared, “If I had your brains, I would be a better person.”

Pondering the depth of that statement, Pascal paused momentarily before replying, “Be a better person, and you will have my brains.”

And that young student became on the most famous philosophers of their time. Pascal had helped him change his attitude.

All these writings are mainly to hammer our point today;

THERE IS NEED FOR THE ADOPTION OF THE RIGHT ATTITUDE
