The longer I live, the more I realize how much impact attitude has on people’s lives. A person’s attitude is more important than education. It’s more important than money, circumstances, failures, successes, appearance or skill. It’s especially more important than what others think, say or do. The attitude of everyone involved will make or break a company, a church, a home – or a country.
The change starts by shifting our focus. Once others start focusing on the issues instead of gossip and their own special interests, and listen the attitudes of the people will start to change. The silent majority will wake up, become proud of their actions and get involved in working to help everyone, not just themselves. In turn, our ’ attitudes will continue to shift, and they’ll start working harder to agree instead of disagree, at least debate ate a civil level. This cycle will continue, moving us and our country closer to actually fixing our problems, with workable solutions. We don’t need to agree, we need to listen and tolerate the opinions of others.
The remarkable thing is that this change, is something we, control as individuals, and can do every day. Everyday we have a choice regarding the attitude we embrace. We cannot change the past, nor the fact that other people will act or believe in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. But we can change our attitude. And we’re the only ones who can change it.
We at “NO HATE NO VIOLENCE” are convinced that life is 10 percent what happens to us and 90 percent how we react to it. So change how you react to all the things in this world we can, and you might just change the world itself. Hopefully, our leaders and influential people will lead us in this effort.
