Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other one thing.
Then, without realizing it, you try to improve yourself at the start of each new day; of course, you achieve quite a lot in the course of time. Anyone can do this, it costs nothing and is certainly very helpful. Whoever doesn't know it must learn and find by experience that a quiet conscience makes one strong.
If we value independence, if we are disturbed by the growing conformity of knowledge, of values, of attitudes, which our present system induces, then we may wish to set up conditions of learning which make for uniqueness, for self-direction, and for self-initiated learning.
COLLEEN C. BARRETT:
Work is either fun or drudgery. It depends on your attitude. I like fun.
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; we must first set our hearts right.
Small opportunities are often the beginning of great enterprises.
Nothing is easier than self-deceit. For what each man wishes, that he also believes to be true.
For everything there is a season,
And a time for every matter under heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
A time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together;
A time to embrace, And a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to seek, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to tear, and a time to sew;
A time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate,
A time for war, and a time for peace.
EDWIN H. FRIEDMAN:
The colossal misunderstanding of our time is the assumption that insight will work with people who are unmotivated to change. Communication does not depend on syntax, or eloquence, or rhetoric, or articulation but on the emotional context in which the message is being heard. People can only hear you when they are moving toward you, and they are not likely to when your words are pursuing them. Even the choices words lose their power when they are used to overpower. Attitudes are the real figures of speech.
Bite off more than you can chew, then chew it.
The remarkable thing is that we really love our neighbor as ourselves: we do unto others as we do unto ourselves. We hate others when we hate ourselves. We are tolerant toward others when we tolerate ourselves. We forgive others when we forgive ourselves. We are prone to sacrifice others when we are ready to sacrifice ourselves.
FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT:
The thing always happens that you really believe in; and the belief in a thing makes it happen.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.
HENRY DAVID THOREAU:
Thought is the sculptor who can create the person you want to be.
If you think you can, you can. And if you think you can't, you're right. also attributed to Mary Kay Ash
JAMES A. FROUDE:
You cannot dream yourself into a character; you must hammer and forge yourself one.
The most successful people are those who are good at plan B.
M. SCOTT PECK:
The truth is that our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.
If you are distressed by anything external, the pain is not due to the thing itself, but to your estimate of it; and this you have the power to revoke at any moment.
MARIAN WRIGHT EDELMAN:
No one, Eleanor Roosevelt said, can make you feel inferior without your consent. Never give it.
with thanks & regards,
I am wondering how do you teach employees about "attitude". Outside of raising the consciousness that Attitude is a choice - one that you can choose freely. What types of skill building activities have people done to help demonstrate this?
I have used the FISH philosophy in the past, but again, outside of raising awareness, is there skill building that can be done here?
