As executives and business leaders, we can face a lot of discouragement. Being a leader isn’t easy, and it isn’t easy to keep a positive
attitude with optimism. It’s not impossible.
Let me share some thoughts
and great quotes from leaders to encourage you to keep a positive, optimistic attitude:
Failure is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night. Today is a brand new day…and it's yours.
When you wholeheartedly adopt a “with all your heart” attitude and go out with the positive principle, you can do incredible things.
Norman Vincent Peale
Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have.
Optimist: A man who is chased up a tree by a lion but enjoys the scenery anyway.
Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.
When you have vision it affects your attitude. Your attitude is optimistic rather than pessimistic.
Charles R. Swindoll
The average pencil is seven inches long, with just a half-inch eraser – in case you thought optimism was dead.
Many of life’s failures are people who did not realize how close they were to success when they gave up.
Don’t find fault, find a remedy.
A great person attracts great people and knows how to hold them together.
Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe
The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.
A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
And there is one more from the great philosopher, Dr. Seuss:
Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.
Take the day!
