6 Attitude you must have towards Life


According to Jesse Jackson, ‘If I can conceive it and believe it, I can achieve it. It's not my aptitude but my attitude that will determine my altitude—with a little intestinal fortitude! Our attitude, character and opinion about life are very important and are one of the determinants to how far we would go in life. There is a limit to where we can go or be in life if we don’t have the right content to contain what is coming for us. Therefore in this article, we will identify the 6 particular attitude we should have about life and can make us reach the pinnacle we so desire;

#1 Know that your only competition is who you were yesterday
In life, you must always ask yourself the question, ‘who are you after or who is after you?’ The only person you should always try to better is yourself. At every point in your life, always evaluate yourself. Look at where you are coming from, where you are now and where you are going. Always make sure you are never idle, and also make sure you are doing better today than yesterday. Never let there be a time that your yesterday was better than today.

The only person you are competing with is yourself. Don’t use other people’s race to run your own, don’t try to copy other people’s paper, our life questions are very different. The only person you are contending or running the life race with is yourself. Try to be better than the man you used to be.

#2 Earn, save and invest before you spend
According to Bernard Mannes Baruch, ‘A speculator is a man who observes the future, and acts before it occurs’. Yes, if you plan to secure a future that is not here yet, then you have to do so by investing in the future. Freedom doesn’t come free; it comes through blood and sweat. This is the reason why you have to work your ass out and earn. If you still depend on one or two for monetary values, then you are not free yet. You have to start doing something; you have to start earning. Then, you have to save, before you now think of spending. If you refused to save, you must prepare to borrow

Saving and borrowing are mutually exclusive. If you spend all that comes to your hand when you get it, then when the source ceases, be ready to borrow to sustain your profligacy. For the purpose of wisdom in investing, I recommend ‘The Richest man in Babylon’. The book taught me financial wisdom and guided me on how to treat money. You can check the article 10 Tricks of Successful Investment for more details on the wisdom of investing. This is the only way to guarantee a future and financially and prevent any form of bankrupt.

#3 Avoid negative people, life is too short
According to William Shakespeare, ‘Give every man thy ear, but few thy voice; Take each man's censure, but reserve thy judgment’. The worst people to live with are the negative people or the pessimistic people. These people always have a reason for something not to be done or achieved. They are fond of wanting not to do anything and want people to be like them. Imagine if your wife, husband, employee or boss is like this, you tend to be at a point for a very long time and your progress would definitely be questioned. The best thing is to avoid people like this. You can check the article 10 Opinion of Losers, this will help you to identify people like such and know when to run from them.

Life is too short and not achieving anything is one of the most foolish things to do; do everything in your power to disappear from the people that discourage you or boo you from doing anything good for yourself. You are responsible for your own life.

#4 If you don’t go after what you want, you will never get it
According to John Webster, ‘Ambition, madam, is a great man's madness’. Willis Reed says, ‘Go for the moon. If you don't get it, you'll still be heading for a star’. If you do not chase something, something must chase you. If you have no goal or dream, be ready to be used by others to achieve their own dreams. In everyday of your life or at every stage of your life, always chase something. Let something be on your mind that you want to achieve. Reach out to your goals. What you don’t go for will never be yours. You are where you are today because you once had it in mind

According to Stephen R. Covey, ‘Goal setting is obviously a powerful process...the manifestation of creative imagination and independent will. It's the practicality of...translating vision into achievable, actionable doing’. As you wake each day, make sure you set a goal for yourself. Always have a target you want to meet, always have a passion driving you, and always have a top you are eyeing. Let something drive you mad. Let your goals push you to do unimaginable things. Before you know it, you have fulfilled a longtime goal.

#5 See failure as a beginning, not an end
According to Walter Reuther, ‘If you're not big enough to lose, you're not big enough to win’. Failure is what differentiates the weak from the strong, the coward from the bold. Robert Kiyosaki says, ‘Failure is not the opposite of success, failure is a part of success’. You can learn more of this from the book Rich Dad Poor Dad and this has been compressed into the article ‘6 Lessons from Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki. Failure doesn’t determine what you will become; rather, it is only a setback, challenge and test of your endurance. Only the willing, enthusiastic and persevering will get to the end of the journey. 

When things don’t go your way, don’t feel bad, don’t brood, rather roll up your sleeve and face it. Never run from your problems, else, you will continue to meet them and you will never pass that particular stage. See failure as a friend, and you will have reasons to overcome it. Failure won’t end you, it will only mend you. According to Michael Smurfit, ‘Never accept failure, no matter how often it visits you. Keep on going. Never give up’.

#6 Our habits decide our future
Finally, we will discuss the importance of habit in what we want to become in life. Habit is what shows the type of person we are and the type of person we will be. When you are used to laziness, it is quite easy to predict that success is very far from you. If you are the type that sleeps early and wake late just because you think you deserve to sleep all the time, then when the consequences come, you will happily suffer it.

The Holy Bible says, ‘A little sleep, a little slumber, so poverty comes’. However, if you are known to be hardworking, industrious, sedulous, busy, calculative, sapiosexual, it is quite easy to see how soon you will break barriers and people won’t be surprised when they see you living comfortably, because they know you deserve it. 

Therefore, work on your habit; check the things you do daily. Most great men always share the experience of doing some things every day; Such as waking early, planning their life, fulfilling their schedule, giving time for medical checkup and the likes. Your habit in life is very important. Always evaluate yourself at the end of each day and ask yourself if you achieved what you ought to achieve for that day; this is very important.
