On Sunday, I read 'YOUR ROAD MAP FOR SUCCESS" by JOHN C. MAXWELL and a part of the book struck me. For over 30 minutes I was pondering on the next step when a voice told me to share it because it might be just what somebody reading this needs.
YOUR CURRENT ATTUTIDE IS A CHOICE
Most people with bad attitudes usually point to something other than themselves to explain their problem. But you can't rightfully blame your attitude on anything or anyone but yourself. It's not what happens to you but what happens in you that counts. Your attitude is not based on
You may not be able to control what happens to you, but you are completely responsible for your reaction to what happens to you.
The past is gone and outside your control. You are responsible for not allowing it to control you in the present.
Since everyone faces limitations of some kind, you need to learn to live with them.
No one but you is responsible for the choices you make today. You may have been hurt or abused in the past, but it's up to you to overcome that injury, just as you would a physical one, and move beyond it.
I'd enjoin the "bookies" amongst us to try to read this book, it's one of the few motivational books I can vouch for.
