it won't make any difference to you or anyone else unless you act,

In the long run men hit only what they aim at.
Therefore, though they should fail immediately,
they had better aim at something high.

They were fashioned by those who dared to look hard at their wishes
and gave them horses to ride.

Richard Nelson Bolles

believe in them,

Go ahead!
Have a bad attitude!
Revel in it!
Jump right into it with everything you've got!

See if anybody cares!
And if somebody comes up to you and comments on your bad attitude ...

The same goes for a positive attitude.

In the end, it all depends on the RESULTS you want.

Jace Carlton

"We who lived in concentration camps
can remember the men who walked through the huts
comforting others, giving away their last piece of bread.
They may have been few in number,
but they offer sufficient proof
that everything can be taken from a man but one thing:
the last of the human freedoms—
to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances,
to choose one’s own way."

Viktor Frankl

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us,
but by how we react to what happens.
A positive attitude is a catalyst ...
a spark that creates extraordinary results.


I've never lost.
I've just been a little behind
when time ran out.

Vince Lombardi

A positive attitude is a powerful force for good,
giving life to everything it touches.


The greatest discovery a person can make
is that it is possible to alter one's life
by altering one's attitude.
