Attitude is Everything
The Difference Between Just Winning and Being a Champion
Thinking back to when I was growing up, I can always remember my parents discussing the importance of my attitude. If I was instructed to do something that I didn't want to do, I'd moodily carry out the task with resentment, blame, and questioning "why I had to do it".
"You had better fix your attitude", I can hear my mom as clearly as if she was standing here telling me today. From that perspective, I always associated "attitude" as something to just deal with and it would change after I got through whatever it was I was resisting. More of a reactive than a proactive situation.
It wasn't until I was on the track team in college that I had an "aha" moment and discovered that attitude is KEY.
