Attitude Counts

“There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.” ~ W. Clement Stone
One of the things I try to teach students as well as model for them is that attitude is the one thing that makes a huge difference in outcomes.  Becoming positive and staying positive can only bring more positive results.
I need to remind myself of this today, because I’ve been getting quite a bit of “attitude” lately, especially today.  I try to shrug it off personally, and I usually do, but it kills me to see it, because I know what the attitude is creating in my students.
They are creating a reality of negativity and failure, and they will have to live in it.  What a waste!
It’s not always easy staying positive, but it truly can make the difference between success and failure.
