Famous Quotes on Attitude

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference – Winston Churchill

Attitude is one of the best things to have in life. Many great personalities of the past and the present will tell you that their attitude is probably what got them through some tough situations in life. Having an attitude towards everything in life is important, but having a positive attitude is much more important than that.

Attitude is essentially the way we think and feel about something, someone, some place, some event, etc. Attitude is important because it directly influences our actions. Our actions are influenced by our choices, i.e. the choice of whether to act or not, the choice of when to act, the choice of how to act, etc. Our choices are again based on the way we think, so it’s a cyclic reaction with attitude at its center. The key is to realize it’s not what happens to you that matters; it’s how you choose to respond. The great people of the past and the present can also be understood as the extensions of their respective attitudes. Their attitude is what makes them unique and influential.
