Every action has a reaction. Every cause has an effect. Every choice has a consequence. The choice is yours to make. The consequence of that choice is not up to you.
ATTITUDE is part of the cycle of cause and effect because it is both cause and effect.
ATTITUDE is the result of what you think and what you feel. More specifically how you feel about what you think and what you think about how you feel.
ATTITUDE is 99% choice.
You can’t always choose what happens to you, but you must choose how you respond. If something in said to you which causes an emotional reaction, be it anger, fear, sadness or happiness, YOU ALONE choose WHAT YOU THINK about those words and the person who spoke them. YOU ALONE choose how long you hold on to and live in the EMOTIONAL REACTION.
HOWEVER - the ATTITUDE you respond with (your chosen thoughts plus your chosen emotions) WILL CAUSE another chain reaction.
NOW YOU ARE THE CAUSE - your choices are in play, but the consequences are no long in your control.
Leaders are influencers who must choose wisely and choose their ATTITUDES carefully.
