Quotations about attitude

Your mental attitude is something you can control outright and you must use self discipline until you create a positive mental attitude -- your mental attitude attracts to you everything that makes you what you are.

 - Napoleon Hill

Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force.

 - Tom Blandi

A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our worlds; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before the change.

 - Earl Nightingale

I am convinced that attitude is the key to success or failure in almost any of life's endeavors. Your attitude, your perspective, your outlook, how you feel about yourself, how you feel about other people - determines your priorities, your actions, your values. Your attitude determines how you interact with other people and how you interact with yourself.

 - Carolyn Warner

You can't build a great company without great people. But how do you know them when you see them? Over the past few years, a number of companies in a wide range of industries -- from airlines to steel, computers to hotels -- have asked themselves what separates their winners from their losers, good hires from bad, and they all arrived at the same answer: what people know is less important than who they are. Hiring, they believe, is not about finding people with the right experience; it's about finding people with the right mind-set. These companies hire for attitude and train for skill.

 - Peter Carbonara

Thomas JeffersonNothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.

 - Thomas Jefferson

The remarkable thing we have is a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past . . .We cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

 - Charles Swindoll

The art of being yourself at your best is the art of unfolding your personality into the person you want to be. Be gentle with yourself, learn to love yourself, to forgive yourself, for only as we have the right attitude towards ourselves can we have the right attitude towards others.

 - Wilferd Peterson
