Values n' Life

Sunday, March 12, 2006


The attitude you present to the outside world matters a whole lot. It affects the way you see things, how you relate to others and how you relate to people in general. It shows who you are, It shows . The following quotes capture the essence of such an attitude. "They Can because they Think they Can." (Virgil) "A positive attitude is the outward manifestation of a mind that dwells primarily on positive matters. It is a mindset tipped in favour of creative activity rather than boredom; joy over sadness, hope over futility. A positive attitude is that state of mind which can be maintained only through conscious effort". (Elwood Chapman, "Attitude: Your Most Precious Possession") "You can do anything if you have enthusiasm. Enthusiasm is the yeast that makes your hopes rise to the stars. Enthusiasm is the sparkle in your eyes, the swing in your gait and the grip of your hand, the irresistable surge of will and energy to execute your ideas. Enthusiasts are fighters. They have fortitude. They have staying qualities. "I think negative people should be taxed. They require an incredible amount of energy. In conclusion the following story and quote can summarise my thoughts. A man found an eagle's egg and placed it under a brooding hen. The eagle hatched with the chickens and grew to be like them. He clucked and cackled, scratched the earth for worms, flapped his wings and managed to fly a few feet in the air. Years passed. One day the eagle, now grown old saw a magnificent bird above him in the sky; it glided in graceful majesty against the powerful wind, with scarcely a movement of its golden wings. Spellbound the eagle asked "who's that?" "That's the king of the birds, the eagle" said his neighbour. "He belongs to the sky. We belong to the earth - we're chickens". So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that's what he thought he was. "whatever you vividly imagine, ardently desire, sincerely believe and enthusiastically act upon, must inevitably come to pass" (Paul Meyer)
