The Quotes Challenge Day 2 – Attitude Determines Your Altitude

For my Day 2 of the Quotes Challenge, I want to emphasize one of the things that can make you a better person:

This is an actual item I currently have on my office desk. At times I am tempted to vent out my stress but I am always reminded to be the bigger person.

“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”

Zig Ziglar

We may experience hardships, challenges, trials, stress, and mishaps. We may even make mistakes when we least expect it, and we may not even perform in a level that we expect ourselves to attain.

Most of the time, people around you can tolerate this. After all, no one is perfect. But what they do mind is your attitude in dealing with the rough times. This is all that matters.

On many occasions, managers talk little about the skill set of a certain employee. The important part of their assessment is the employee’s work attitude. Develop the right attitude and the skills will follow.

Let’s see the bigger picture and talk about how we deal with our life. Our attitude solidifies our strength and character. True character is tested through affliction and fire. Real strength comes from the weakest moments of our lives. So without the correct attitude, we are as good as lost.
