For a person to build a rich and rewarding life for himself, there are certain qualities and bits of knowledge that he needs to acquire. But there are also things — harmful attitudes, superstitions, emotions — that he needs to chip away. A person needs to chip away everything that doesn't look like the person he or she most wants to become.
We tend to live up to our expectations.
It is our attitude toward life that determines life's attitude toward us. We get back what we put out.
If you'll begin to develop and maintain an attitude that says yes to life and the world, you'll be astonished at the changes you'll see.
Getting rich, or becoming outstanding at anything is all a matter of attitude. You must make up your mind once and for all - you commit yourself - and then just stay with it until you finally have what you set out to get.
Everything in the world we want to do or get done, we must do with and through people. Every dollar we will ever earn must come from people. The person we love, and with whom we want to spend the rest of our life, is a human being with whom we must interact. Our children are individuals, each different from any other person who ever lived. And what affects them most is our attitude-the loving kindness they see and feel whenever we are around them. If you'll begin to develop and maintain an attitude that says yes to life and the world, you'll be astonished at the changes you'll see.
Your world and everything in it is a reflection of your own mental attitude toward yourself.
Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitudes and expectations.
Don't take the attitude of waiting for people to be nice to you - be nice to them. Don't sit in front of a cold stove waiting for the heat. Put in the fuel. Act first.
Our environment, the world in which we live and work, is a mirror of our attitude and expectations. If we feel that our environment could stand some improvement, we can bring about that change for the better by improving our attitude. The world plays no favorites. It's impersonal. It doesn't care who succeeds and who fails. Nor does it care if we change. Our attitude toward life doesn't affect the world and the people in it nearly as much as it affects us.
We can help others in the world more by making the most of yourself than in any other way. We must be the epitome-the embodiment-of success. We must radiate success before it will come to us. We must first become mentally, from an attitude standpoint, the people we wish to become. We will receive not what we idly wish for but what we justly earn. Our rewards will always be in exact proportion to our service.
Each of us creates his or her own life largely by our attitude.
People think, 'She's a model. She must have such an attitude. She must be so stuck up.' But I'm normal. I cry. I'm not rich. I drive a 1987 Chevrolet Celebrity.
Hard work spotlights the character of people: some turn up their sleeves, some turn up their noses, and some don't turn up at all.
False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil.
Wit is the salt of conversation, not the food, and few things in the world are more wearying than a sarcastic attitude towards life.
Christopher Michael Cillizza
I eat like a maniac when I am sick. My attitude is if I am going to die anyway in the next 24-48 hours, I mind as well live it up.
It doesn't matter; even if you do tend to wear the same things all the time, it's how you wear them and your attitude that counts.
Just remember that, ultimately, dressing is always about attitude, feeling comfortable and confidence
Wicksell's old-fashioned liberalism is reminiscent of John Maynard Keynes' attitude toward conscription during World War I. Keynes opposed conscription, but he was not a pacifist. He opposed conscription because it deprived the citizen of the right to decide for himself whether or not to join in the fight. Keynes was exempt as a civil servant from conscription; so there is no need to question his sincerity. Apparently his belief in the rights of the individual against a majority of his compatriots was very strong indeed.
I don't in any way underestimate the difficulties, because it's only gotten harder. But I do think you just have to go into politics with the attitude that you're going to speak clearly and authentically about what you see the country needs...and seek out whatever possible partners you can, even in the other party. I've looked at successful presidents going back. Some of our most successful governed through periods when their party was in charge, and when the other party was in charge. There's no magic formula.
In fact, [Donald's Trump] cavalier attitude about nuclear weapons is so deeply troubling.
[Donald Trump] attitude towards our longest defense alliance and NATO, that we should somehow walk away from it.
I try to keep a positive attitude about everything.
We inherit a lot from our parents: mom's eyes, dad's chin, and the attitude of whichever parent isn't punishing you at the moment. All of those things we have our mom's to thank for."If evolution really works, how come mothers only have two hands?"
Algy, you always adopt a strictly immoral attitude towards life. You are not quite old enough to do that.
Seriousness is the only refuge of the shallow.
Between the optimist and the pessimist, the difference is droll. The optimist sees the doughnut; the pessimist the hole!
The basis of optimism is sheer terror.
Pessimist: One who, when he has the choice of two evils, chooses both.
