I have so many blogs that are labeled or just about perspective. I try not to use the same title, but I had to on this one.
To me, that is the #1 thing that MAKES a circumstance or situation. It’s how you look at it.
Today, at the last general session of the leadership conference I was blessed to take 21 students to, our speaker was all about perspective.
Make sad happy–
By giving and not taking
By helping others
And doing all you can to make a change.
Don’t think you can’t, believe you CAN.
You are not who you are because of what you look like.
True leaders don’t judge others who don’t make the cut.
It’s not about me, it’s about what I’m honored and blessed to give you.
Your life is limitless.
Attitude is not a cliche.

He gave it to us by the example he lives. He gave it to us by his actions. He was born with no arms and instead of looking at that as a disability …he said it was just a little struggle or difficulty. To overcome those –no matter what they are—we must work.
This is so true! We all have our hang ups whether physical or mental and we have to WORK, put effort to it to make it past them. It doesn’t happen overnight or in one day. It happens because we make our attitude a habit. Attitude truly is power. PERSPECTIVE is what drives our attitude or visa versa. To me, they are one in the same.
