“The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do”
– Steve Jobs

I don’t know about you, but the greatest challenge in my life has been – and yes, continues to be – keeping my attitude in check. I’ve found the secret to my success. As my attitude towards my career and personal like improve and I get more enthusiastic – and I get more thankful for what I already have – my confidence increases by leaps and bounds. Not only that, but as my confidence level increases, I discovered I’m more successful.
I’ve also discovered two truly remarkable facts through the years. The first is, without a doubt, I am in charge of my attitude. The second came as a surprise to me, but it is true nonetheless. My attitude is also greatly influenced by those individuals with whom I surround myself.

For this reason, I am careful about who I spend my time with. When I spend time with negative people, those lacking a good attitude and aren’t grateful for what they have, I tend to spiral into a similar attitude and it doesn’t take long for that to reflect in my performance and in my personal life.
