First and foremost, a good attitude is THE mandatory ingredient for success.
Once I got my attituded straigntened out, I learned that one should always consider the source when taking advice. Throughout my life I've seen so many people take advice from losers. What a shame!
If you want help in making the right decision, look to someone who is extremely successful in that area and ask them for advice. Don't ask your friend who is in the same boat as you and especially don't take advice from someone who might be jealous. Always consider the source of everything you hear. Always!
So many times, I've heard a divorced woman giving her married friend advice in regard to marrage. There's two problems with that. First, the divorced woman wasn't so good at it - her marrage failed. Second, the divorced woman doesn't want her narried friend to be happier than she is. She's jealous!
Recognize your faults and never think that it's the rest of the world dumping on you. You are where you are in life because of you, your decisions and actions--no one else's.
When I fail at something--the blame falls here, nowhere else. It totally amazes me how many people can't take responsibility for their own actions. They have to put the blame elsewhere. They have more excuses than a barroom loser and they believe that the other person is stupid enough to believe them. They may get humored, but seldom believed. Remember: Successful people always find a way. Losers always find an excuse!
Successful people always accept their own mistakes and never make excuses! You will find the door to opportunity opens to those who realize this.
You'll find when you change your attitude to positive, everything becomes easier to accomplish. People will be willing to help you succeed and life will be more pleasant.
