Wearing Overalls

"There are really only two dimensions to the concept of attitude -- you either behave as though you are a victim of circumstance, or you take full responsibility for your situation." - Richard Rudd

I believe it was Thomas Edision who said, "Opportunity is missed by most because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work." A very appropriate quote when I hear people tell me nothing good ever comes their way.

Tough life to live when you view from a negative perspective.

Many times we fail to have good things happen in our life because we simply fail to put on those overalls and work to be in a position of opportunity. An author, albeit slightly odd in my opinion, Carlos Castaneda said, "The trick is in what one emphasizes. We either make ourselves miserable, or we make ourselves happy. The amount of work is the same."

So yes, we work at being negative or work at being positive about our life. It is work we have to undertake either way. So why would we choose to be negative if it take work to accomplish either type of attitude.

Are you willing to fit into those overalls? Will you work to put yourself in a position of opportunity? Or are you simply going to work hard at the negative aspects of your life?

Stand on the side of the road watching or get in the flow of life.

You have the ability to make things happen in your life. You control the attitude and the happiness which emanates from within. Put on those overalls and work hard on a positive attitude. Let life offer more then you ever imagined.

Stay inspired my friends.
