Attitude is Everything

In his book, "Make Today Count", John Maxwell re-tells a story from his high school days when his basketball coach took him aside at the beginning of his senior year and told him that he wanted him to be the captain of the team.

He was excited but a bit surprised at the same time because he knew that he wasn't the best player on the team.

His coach went on to explain that he may not have been the most skilled player on the team but he had the best attitude and that influenced the other players.

It's important to understand that we choose the attitude we have and if it's our intent to have a great day then we have to have a great attitude to match.

Individuals who possess a positive attitude are able to better focus on the positive aspects of a relationship, as opposed to the negative things. In fact, the negative may even improve - simply because the attitude remains positive.

Hard Court Tip
Personal and business relationships can improve and benefit simply by adopting a positive attitude, thinking positive thoughts, and reacting to situations in a positive way.
