THOUGHTS: It’s the attitude that makes the difference.

An excerpt from the book: Developing the leader in you by John Maxwell.

Arnold Palmer has won hundreds of trophies and awards for his great skills in golf. But the only trophy in his office is a battered cup that he got for his professional win at the Canadian Open in 1955. Beside it is the plaque that served him well throughout all those wins.

If you think you are beaten, you are.

If you think you dare not, you don’t.

If you’d like to win but think you can’t,

It’s almost certain you won’t.

Life’s battles don’t always go.

To the stronger or faster man,

But sooner or later, THE MAN WHO WINS


We cannot continue to function in a manner that we do not truly believe about ourselves. 


Nowadays, it’s so easy to find something that will piss you off. Initially, you go out of the house, and boom! Traffic is everywhere. A mud in the street, the scorching heat of the sun, an annoying colleague, etc.

According to Paulo Coelho, Considering the way the world is, one happy day is almost a miracle.

But this: Pollyanna Principle.

It is the tendency for people to remember pleasant items more accurately than unpleasant ones.

It is also described as the unrealistic optimism and having an excessive (and even harmful) belief that all things will have positive outcomes, no matter what.
