You’ve seen them, the ones with the little black cloud above their head.  You get behind them in supermarket lines or at a kid’s fun fairs, and they want you to listen to their bitching about something that isn’t right, or, ‘Woe is me’, never thinking that the cheerful person behind them has gone through very tragic times.

Attitude is how you face the obstacles in life and come out the other side.  Yes, it is difficult, but how you view, and act, in situations determines the outcomes.  I have known people who have suffered horrendous tragedy in their life but have picked out the positive and carried on, to live full, and productive lives, usually giving back to those who have undergone similar issues.

I have never seen anyone with a bad attitude who has success in anything.  They attract the worst in life and the challenges multiply.  As well, they drag down those around them, catching them in their web of despair.

“With everything that has happened to you, you can either feel sorry for yourself or treat it as a gift.  Everything is either an opportunity to grow or an obstacle to keep you from growing.  You get to choose.”  Wayne Dyer
