July - Dec’12

Airplanes have instruments called attitude indicators. These instruments measure the position of the aircraft in relation to the horizon. When a plane is climbing it has a nose high attitude and when it is descending it has a nose down attitude. Pilots keep close watch on the attitude indicator, because they know it helps to determine the altitude of the plane. If they wish to change the altitude of the plane they must adjust the attitude.

The success we find each day is deeply influenced by the attitude we have about life. We can choose to go through life with a nose down attitude and see nothing but the ground or we can go through life with a nose up attitude and continually see the stars. We can’t control all the things that impact our lives, but we do have responsibility for the attitude we have. Words can never adequately convey the incredible impact of our attitude towards life. “Life is ten percent what happens to us and ninety percent how we respond to it.”

This reminds me of the two shoe salesmen who were sent to an underdeveloped country to introduce their product. The first one got off the ship and immediately noticed no one seemed to have shoes. He went straight to the telegraph office and sent his company the message, “Will return on the next ship, no one here wears shoes.” The second salesman got off the ship and noticed the same thing. He went immediately to the telegraph office and sent an opposite message, “Send all the shoes we have, everyone here needs a pair.”

The difference between the two was a matter of perspective. One surveyed the situation and could see only problems. The other saw beyond the problems to the possibilities.

So therefore to conclude, I must say that the greatest part of our happiness depends not on our positions but our dispositions!!!

With that said, I wish everyone a wonderful new year 2013 filled with prosperity, joy and contentment.
