Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.
Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.
Never assume the obvious is true.
Rule your mind or it will rule you.
Attitude: It is our best friend or our worst enemy.
John C. Maxwell
Our attitude toward life determines life’s attitude towards us.
John N. Mitchell
A positive attitude can really make dreams come true – it did for me.
The greatest discovery of all time is that a person can change his future by merely changing his attitude.
Success is that old ABC – Ability, Breaks and Courage.
There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.
W. Clement Stone quotes
Attitudes are contagious. Are yours worth catching?
Dennis and Wendy Mannering
If a person gets his attitude toward money straight, it will help straighten out almost every other area in his life.
Billy Graham quotes
Anywhere is paradise; it’s up to you.
Just because you’re miserable doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy your life.
The only disability in life is a bad attitude.
Take charge of your attitude. Don’t let someone else choose it for you.
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
Affectation is a greater enemy to the face than smallpox.
There are no menial jobs, only menial attitudes.
William J. Bennett.
Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles.
A happy person is not a person in a certain set of circumstances, but rather a person with a certain set of attitudes.
We cannot change our past. We can not change the fact that people act in a certain way. We can not change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.
Charles R. Swindoll
Whenever you fall, pick something up.
What is the difference between an obstacle and an opportunity? Our attitude towards it. Every opportunity has a difficulty and every difficulty has an opportunity.
J. Sidlow Baxter
Nothing is at last sacred but the integrity of your mind.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
It isn’t our position but our disposition which makes us happy.
Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it.
Lou Holtz quotes
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
Luck is a matter of preparation meeting opportunity.
It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you place the blame.
The problem is not the problem; the problem is your attitude about the problem
You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.
You must start with a positive attitude or you will surely end without one.
You are about as happy as you make up your mind to be.
We become what we think about.
When our attitude towards ourselves is big, and our attitude toward others is generous and merciful, we attract big and generous portions of success.
W. Clement Stone
The knowledge that you have emerged wiser and stronger from setbacks means that you are ever after secure in your ability to survive
Being Challenged in Life is Inevitable, being Defeated is Optional.
Nothing 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.
Someone’s opinion of you does not have to become your reality.
You cannot tailor-make the situations in life, but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations.
The greatest revolution of our generation is the discovery that human beings, by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.
In order to keep getting more of what you already have, keep doing what you are doing. If you want something different, you must do something different.
The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity; the optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.
All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think, we become.
For peace of mind, resign as general manager of the universe.
Success or failure in business is caused more by mental attitude even than by mental capacities.
Walter Dill Scott
Have patience with all things, but chiefly,. have patience with yourself. Do not lose courage in considering your own imperfections, but instantly set about remedying them and every day begin the task anew.
Saint Francis de Sakes
If your attitude toward the world is good, you will obtain good results. If your attitude is excellent, excellent will your results.
Virtually nothing on earth can stop a person with a positive attitude who has his goals clearly in sight.
The subtle difference in our attitude can make a major difference in our future. It can be as simple as the language we use.
Your beliefs about yourself and your world create your expectations.
Your expectations determine your attitude.
Your attitude determines your behavior and the way you relate to other people.
And the way you behave toward and relate to other people determines how they relate to and behave toward you.
Why Mothers are so Special – Very Nice story with Moral
Mum and Dad were watching TV when Mum said, “I’m tired, and it’s Getting late.I think I’ll go to bed.”
She went to the kitchen to make sandwiches for the next day Lunches. Rinsed out the popcorn bowls, checked the cereal box levels, filled the sugar container, put spoons and bowls on the Table and started the coffee pot for brewing the next morning. She then put some wet clothes in the dryer, put a load of clothes into the washer, ironed a shirt and secured a loose button. She picked up the game pieces left on the table, put the phone back on the charger and put the telephone book into the drawer.
She watered the plants, emptied a wastebasket and hung up a towel to dry. She yawned and stretched and headed for the bedroom. She stopped by the desk and wrote a note to the teacher, counted out some cash for the excursion and pulled a text book out from hiding under the chair. Mum then washed her face with 3 in 1 cleanser, put on her Night Solution & age fighting moisturizer, brushed and flossed her teeth and filed her nails.
Dad called out, “I thought you were going to bed.”
“I’m on my way,” she said. She put some water into the dog’s dish , then made sure the doors were locked and the patio light was on. She looked in on each of the kids and turned out their bedside lamps and radios, hung up a shirt, threw some dirty socks into the hamper, and had a brief conversation with the one up still doing homework. In her own room, she set the alarm; laid out clothing for the next day, straightened up the shoe rack. She added three things to her 6 most important things to do list. She said her prayers, and visualized the accomplishment of her goals.
About that time, Dad turned off the TV And announced to no one in particular. “I’m going to bed.” And he Did without another thought. Anything extraordinary here?
Life is all about making priorities, what are your priorities?

~Lost Pounds, Gain Happiness ~
You may know Ben Davis as a marathoner, ironman or a role model to lose weight. But to me, he’s a great inspiration for everyone.
Ben was once ‘huge’ as he described himself, with 360 pounds. He was upset with himself and life was a mess. Till one day, he decided to make a change – he runs.
Like all things in life, the starting is always hard and slow. But later he ran 7 miles, 15 miles, 20 miles and even a marathon with his father and brother. Now, he lost 120 pounds and is a happy healthy guy.
Ben is not just an inspiration and motivation for those who want to lose weight, but to people from all walks of life. His courage and persistence turn what may seem difficult, to possible.
Learn from Ben’s experience: “If you really want to do it, just do it! You can”
Enjoy this motivational video~
It doesn’t matter how many say it cannot be done or how many people have tried it before; it’s important to realize that whatever you’re doing, it’s your first attempt at it.
~ Living Out Your Dream ~
“Dream Rangers” is not just a commercial to me (created by Ogilvy, Taiwan for TC Bank), but a touching motivational video too.
Based on a true story, this video shows 5 Taiwan senior citizens who went all out to realize their dream despite of their old age and illness. They were feeling weak, unwanted and depress until they decided to ride motorcycles again and go travel, just like when they were young.
The video is so heart-warming that left me speechless, just tears in my eyes. So I think you should just go ahead with the video, get inspired~
After you watch the video, ask yourself: “What is stopping you from achieving your dream? Are you brave and determined enough to pursue it?”
I hope you get motivated and be courageous just like the “dream rangers”~
You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.
You Can Shine
~ Motivational Video ~
This is actually a famous Pantene TV commercial. No… I’m not promoting Pantene but the message of the commercial – You can shine.
The story is about a deaf and mute girl who insists to learn violin despite of being teased and bullied by her classmate. An uncle encouraged her and she decided to go all out to pursue her dream.
Watch this motivational video now.
Believe in yourself that you can do it, even when there are obstacles and challenges in your journey of fighting for your dreams.
No person has the right to rain on your dreams.
Marian Wright Edelman
~ Touching Inspirational Video ~
Below is a TV commercial named ‘Funeral’, by the late award winning film director Yasmin Ahmad.
The reason I picked this video is because I visit Yahoo Answers quite often and I noticed there are visitors who are asking for inspirational quotes related to death.
Yes indeed. Having to deal with the loss of a loved one is extremely difficult as the heart is sorely wounded. We need motivation and emotional support to go through the hard time.
In this video, the mother of three expresses her gratefulness towards her late husband in the funeral. She faced the death of her loved one with optimism and courage. It’s not easy to do but she accepts the loss with appreciation and positive attitude.
I hope this heart-warming video will inspires you as much as I do.
Making a Difference-The Young Man and the Starfish
Once upon a time there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his journal writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work.
One day he was walking along the shore. As he looked down the beach, he saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself to think of someone who would dance to the day. So he began to walk faster to catch up.
As he got closer, he saw that it was a young man and the young man wasn’t dancing, but instead he was reaching down to the shore, picking up something and very gently throwing it into the ocean.
As he got closer he called out, “Good morning! What are you doing?”
The young man paused, looked up and replied, “Throwing starfish in the ocean.”
“I guess I should have asked, why are you throwing starfish in the ocean?”
“The sun is up, and the tide is going out. And if I don’t throw them in they’ll die.”
“But, young man, don’t you realize that there are miles and miles of beach, and starfish all along it. You can’t possibly make a difference!”
The young man listened politely. Then bent down, picked up another starfish and threw it into the sea, past the breaking waves and said, “It made a difference for that one.”
There is something very special in each and every one of us. We have all been gifted with the ability to make a difference. And if we can become aware of that gift, we gain through the strength of our visions the power to shape the future. We must each find our starfish. And if we throw our stars wisely and well, the world will be blessed.
Our life is actually a reflection of our thoughts and actions.
Long ago in a small, far away village, there was place known as the House of 1000 Mirrors. A small, happy little dog learned of this place and decided to visit.
When he arrived, he bounced happily up the stairs to the doorway of the house.He looked through the doorway with his ears lifted high and his tail wagging as fast as it could.
To his great surprise, he found himself staring at 1000 other happy little dogs with their tails wagging just as fast as his. He smiled a great smile, and was answered with 1000 great smiles just as warm and friendly.As he left the House, he thought to himself, ” This is a wonderful place. I will come back and visit it often .”
In this same village, another little dog, who was not quite as happy as the first one, decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door. When he saw the 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him, he growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. As he left, he thought to himself, ” That is a horrible place, and I will never go back there again .”
ALL THE FACES IN THE WORLD ARE MIRRORS. JUST OBSERVE WHAT KIND OF REFLECTIONS DO YOU SEE IN THE FACES OF THE PEOPLE WE MEET?
TRUE INSPIRING STORY..
WHEN A LIZARD CAN, WHY CAN’T WE?
This is a true story that happened in Japan (I am not sure abuout the authentcity about its truth.).
In order to renovate the house, someone in Japan breaks open the wall. Japanese houses normally have a hollow space between the wooden walls. When tearing down the walls, he found that there was a lizard stuck there because a nail from outside hammered into one of its feet. He sees this, feels pity, and at the same time curious, as when he checked the nail, it was nailed 5 years ago when the house was first built !!!
What happened? The lizard has survived in such position for 5 years! In a dark wall partition for 5 years without moving, it is impossible and mind-boggling. Then he wondered how this lizard survived for 5 years! without moving a single step–since its foot was nailed! So he stopped his work and observed the lizard, what it has been doing, and what and how it has been eating.
Later, not knowing from where it came, appears another lizard, with food in its mouth. Ah! He was stunned and touched deeply. For the lizard that was stuck by nail, another lizard has been feeding it for the past 5 years… Imagine? it has been doing that untiringly for 5 long years, without giving up hope on its partner.
Imagine what a small creature can do that a creature blessed with a brilliant mind can’t. Please never abandon your loved ones.
Lesson from the Story: Never Say you are Busy When They Really Need You … You May Have The Entire World At Your Feet. But You Might Be The Only World To Them.. A Moment of negligence might break the very heart which loves you thru all odds.. Before you say something just remember.. it takes a moment to Break but an entire lifetime to make…
There’s the story of a top salesman who made a terrible mistake. He’d bought a vast amount of fruit. He thought it would be a bargain but had totally overestimated and his company was left with tons and tons of this rotting fruit. He arrived at his office the following day and started to tidy his papers, clearing his desk. He gets a call from his manager, “Could you pop up and see me?” he says. “Of course” he mumbles and slowly makes his way up the stairs to his boss’ office. As he enters the room he says “Look I know I got it wrong – I’m sorry – I’ve written my letter of resignation – here it is ” and puts it on the desk. His manager looks at the letter, rips it in half, rips it in half again and puts it in the bin. “You must be joking” she says smiling” We’ve just spent £20,000 on your training – there’s no way you’re leaving until you’ve made that back for us.”
