A Check-up from the Neck-up

by Dominic Kotarski

Attitude, Attitude, Attitude, it’s all about attitude. Attitude is your overall outlook concerning your current situation and your future success.

Attitude is more that a mental cognition. It’s an Energy. It’s the way you walk, the way you talk, it’s how you engage and how others see you, feel you and react to your passionate energy; assuming of course that you exude a positive Attitude.

In Dutch they call it uitsraling, pronounced (out-straling) which not only encompasses your attitude but how you appear or display this attitude. If someone is said to have a “goede uitstraling”  you are also talking about their warmth, their energy, their charisma, charm, aura. We don’t have a word in English that describes all of these attitudinal qualities in one. Just because we don’t have one doesn’t mean we shouldn’t exude it. If we could coin a new word then this would be a good one to invent.

The ol, “if it’s to be, it’s up to me!” is the right attitude to carry you throughout your current situation. You find out pretty quickly what kind of attitude you really have, not when things are going good or in your favor but when things are getting tougher than you’re used to or expected.

All you can do is rise up and keep thinking as positive as you can and fight your quitting urges. There’s only learning and there’s no such thing as defeat unless of course you give up. But even then you still need a positive attitude to carry you through to your next venture.

So whatever situation you find yourself in today remember, Your attitude will determine your success or your failure and your attitude is up to you and in your realm of control. So control it and get things moving in the direction you desire.

Your attitdue is just about the only thing you can fully control. Therefore make it your primary aim to sweeten your relationship with your mental outlook, and don’t forget to…Go get em Tiger!!
