Dons' musings about O Fallon Mo : So how's the ‘tude dude or dudette?

So how's the ‘tude dude or dudette?

So how's the ‘tude dude or dudette?

I have compiled some very interesting quotes on the subject of attitude and thought that I would share them with you.

•1.      A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.  Herm Albright

•2.      I happen to feel that the degree of a person's intelligence is directly reflected by the number of conflicting attitudes she can bring to bear on the same topic.  Lisa Alther

•3.      I am still determined to be cheerful and happy, in whatever situation I may be; for I have also learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness or misery depends upon our dispositions, and not upon our circumstances.  Martha Washington

•4.      A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug.  Patricia Neal

•5.      Human beings, by changing the inner attitudes if their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives.  William James

•6.      The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind.  William James

We all have the opportunity everyday to have a negative conversation if we so choose.  We can choose to stay negative about the market if we so want.  But what good is it going to do?  We can be negative about the weather but is that going to change it?  I think not.

Our market may not be as hot as it was just a few short years ago but, people are still buying and selling homes.  If you don't believe me just check your local MLS.

The quotes above beg the question, where is your head?  What are you thinking about?  The market can defeat me or I can change my attitude and behavior and defeat this down market and so can you.  So again I ask, how's the ‘tude dude or dudette?

I couldn't agree more my friend.  Being negative isn't going to get your horse in gear... When the going gets tough... as they say.

I am trying to stay positive but...  Give me 20!  (Just for asking).

Don, I love these. Too funny! Dry humor is right up there with irony in my book. :-)

don, thanks for commenting on my post earlier as it is right in line with his excellent blog. I am quitting the news which will do wonders for my attitude as I leave the house each day.

Thanks for this, Don!  I despise people running around imposing their negative energy into my space!  If you want to spew negative things I won't hang around with you and that in itself is negative!  HAHA

Don...

Thanks for the assemblage of inspirational quotes. Attitude can go a long, long way towards success or failure. I hope that you have a great day!

Don, I live in the lala land of Denial so I tend to lean towards the positive on most days.   Lately, whenever people ask me what I think of the mess our country is in financially, I smile and tell them that I try not to think about it all.  I just go about my business, trying to drum up business, networking, prospecting, calling on old clients and try to enjoy the down time by getting some stuff done that I've been putting off.  Denial can be a beautiful place.  Come on over, the weather if wonderful here!

Hey Dude, My 'Tude is a combination of #1 & 3. There's too much negativity around and I'm choosing to be cheery and positive.

Posted by Debbie Malone, From Lynchburg To The Lake (434) 546-0369 (Londeree's Real Estate & Property Management) almost 11 years ago

Debbie,

I lean, like you, toward #1 just so I can annoy them.

H Don! There is so uch going on around us that we cannot control. To be positive is the only thing I can control! Hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

Posted by Lizette Fitzpatrick, Lizette Realty, Lexington KY MLS - Kentucky Homes (Lizette Realty - Richmond KY) almost 11 years ago

Good evening Lizette,

You are so right ma'am our attitude IS the only thing that we can control and we do need to control it and not let others influence what it will be.
