John Maxwell: Making Attitude Your Greatest Asset-Part #3

Change Your Attitude by Changing Your Thoughts 

That which holds our attention determines our actions. We are where we are because of the dominating thoughts that occupy our minds. William James said, “The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.” 

Major premise: We can control our thoughts. Minor premise: Our feelings come from our thoughts. Conclusion? We can control our feelings by learning to change one thing: the way we think. It is that simple. Our feelings come from our thoughts. Therefore, we can change them by changing our thought patterns. 

Stan Musial, “Stan the Man,” was one of the greatest hitters in Major League Baseball. One day he came into the St. Louis Cardinals locker room where he met oneof the average-talent players on his team. The player turned to Stan and said, “I feel great today, Stan. My family is doing well; I’m feeling good healthwise. In fact, Stan, I feel like I can get two hits today. Do you ever feel that way?” Stan looked at him very positively and replied, “Well, yeah. I feel that way every day. That’s how I think.” 

Stan was surprised that everyone didn’t feel like they could get three to four hits every day. What he realized was there is a relationship between how we think and how we feel. Attitudes are nothing more than habits of thought. 

This cycle can be positive or negative. The process for developing a habit, good or bad, is the same. It is as easy to form a habit of succeeding as it is to succumb to the habit of failure. Observe the following two cycles and see the difference.
