An attitude is the way you think or feel about someone or something. How do you feel about the job you are taking? What do you think of the weather today? What do you think about money? What is happiness in your mind? Maybe you are thinking and feeling the wrong way. You need to critically examine your thoughts and feelings concerning the things you lack, the hurdles you face, or those dreams that have eluded you so far. Your attitude is often one of the first things peoople notice about you.You may not be able to change your height or your body type, you may not be able to change the weather, but you can change your attitude. Many researchers believe that a positive attitude is not a product of genetics and heredity, but with proper training, an acquired trait. The best thing about your attitude is that if it is bad, it can be made better, if it is good, it can be made even greater. Our success is built on our attitude toward the life. As the Chinese former football head coach Bora Milutinovic said: Attitude is everything! So, my dear friends, please accept my request that from this moment keep a positive attitude towards everything in your life and enjoy it.

Thanks so much for this post! I agree. I try to have a positive attitude about absolutely everything. And do I mean everything. So this isn't always probable. Sometimes, the day just get so ridiculously tough that it's tough to look on the bright side: you wake up too late, you fail a test, you got in an argument, you lost something important to you... it's tough. But it's always possible. A positive attitude can always be in reach. A positive attitude is saying "I can do better next time". It's thinking that there's a light at the end of the tunnel... and if there's not, it's making a light. It's looking on the bright side. I think a positive attitude can be most gained through the experience of life. It's knowing that "things could be worse. Remember that one time things were terrible?" That might be why it's hard for a lot of people to see the light of a positive attitude.

I have always had a very positive outlook and it's helped me through some pretty rough times in my life. My mother used to say that I could find something positive to say about a pile of poop...and I could! Life is what you make of it and I've always found it helpful to have a positive outlook.

I try my best to have a good attitude. There are times when I am driving or when someone is rude and before I know it I can slip into anger or frustration. That is time to catch myself and get back on track. We are all human and every day is a new chance to improve.

You are quite right that we are all human.And there is no human who is perfect in every way in this universe. We are the human with many weaknesses. So we need to improve ourselves every single day. And every day is a new chance for us to improve just as you said. Keep on improving and perfect ourselves! Come on!
