Things to Think About - Winning is as much about attitude as aptitude especially when the chips are down

By Pepper de Callier

“Winning is as much about attitude as aptitude especially when the chips are down.” Peter Guber

I heard someone once say that 85% of winning is just showing up.  I would add to that: it’s just showing up with the right attitude.  I am often amazed at the power of attitude in my own life.  I find that whatever my attitude is, going into an experience, more often than not predicts the outcome.  Have you ever met someone that can only see problems and barriers as their first reaction to anything they are asked to do?  Honestly speaking, if you could decide, would you want that person on your team as you undertake a critical, complex project?  How would you say most people would describe your approach?  Does your attitude raise, or lower, the attitudes of others?  These are key questions to ask one’s self on the journey to self-awareness.

Till next time…

Things to Think About (By Pepper de Callier)
Who you are speaks so loudly, I can’t hear a word you’re saying
The secret to success is to maintain enthusiasm between failures
When you are the anvil, hold you still.  But, when you are the hammer, strike your fill
Success is getting what you want.  Happiness is wanting what you get
I am not an Athenian, I am not a Greek, I am a citizen of the world
When I’m afraid of losing, I never win
Courage is resistance to fear, mastery of fear - not absence of fear
Our greatest freedom is the freedom to choose our attitude
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, ... 
How hard it is, sometimes, to trust the evidence of one's senses! How reluctantly the mind consents to reality.
We don't see things as they are. We see things as we are
It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves 
If you believe everything you read, better not read 
People don’t care how much you know until they know how much you care
