Anyone know a good quote about attitude?

I have been negative and pessimistic and ungrateful for things lately. I need to hear a good philosophy about attitude.

I’m sorry too.

I hope you don’t mind me posting here. I’ve tried to think about this and not come up with something trite and cliché. But I’m afraid that’s just what I’ve done.

But the philosophy of thoughts influencing actions, influencing outcome has been striking a chord with me.

Thank you for letting me post.

The book “A battle field for Your Mind” by Joyce Meyer. I haven’t read it yet but it talks about changing your attitude. I’m going to buy the book because of my anger at God.

“Everything you see has its roots in the unseen world. The forms may change, yet the essence remains the same”- Rumi.

This may not be an obvious quote to choose about attitude; but it helps me, it just reminds me that everything has it’s purpose, that we are all part of the same picture, so, that person that isn’t so kind doesn’t make them bad or that you shouldn’t treat them poorly just because they do so to you.

It’s something I’ve carried with me as I do a lot of splitting (defence mechanism) so I see everyone as either good or bad, but this makes me think that it’s not all like that…

The man who thinks he can, and the man who thinks he can’t, are both right.


If you stare into the abyss, the abyss will stare back into you.

I don’t know any direct quotes, but from this book I read last year this really helped:

Knowing that to get to your goals it takes little positive corrections, like an airplane makes tiny corrections to get to its destination. You have to start small and build your way up. It doesn’t happen over night.
