John Maxwell: Making Attitude Your Greatest Asset-Part #4

Manage Your Attitude Daily 

Maintaining the right attitude is easier than regaining the right attitude. Elbert Hubbard said, “Be pleasant until 10 o’clock in the morning, and the rest of the day will take care of itself.” Legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden said, “Things turn out the best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” 

Take Responsibility for Your Attitude 

This reminds me of my early years as a pastor in Lancaster, Ohio, where I served for eight years. If it snowed on Saturday night, the roads were going to be icy and church attendance suffered. I remember one evening it started snowing. The weathermen said it would continue for the next four to five hours. I kept pacing back and forth in front of the window, and my wife, Margaret, said, “John, relax, there’s nothing you can do about the snow.” All throughout the evening she encouraged me to relax, until finally she asked what was so important about the sermon I had to preach the next morning. I said, “I’m speaking on rejoicing in the Lord always.” I’ll never forget her answer. She looked at me and said, “John, you need to change your attitude or change your sermon, one of the two. That attitude and sermon are not compatible.” Well, obviously, I would rather change my attitude, but sometimes I had to change my sermon. The first rule in winning is don’t beat yourself. Your attitude is totally in your control. 

You can’t control the length of your life—but you can control its width and depth. 

You can’t control the contour of your face—but you can control its expression. 

You can’t control the weather—but you can control the atmosphere of your mind.
