“Attitudes are highly contagious within a team structure. Because they can serve as self-fulfilling prophecies, they have the power to destroy a team or accelerate it to great heights. That’s why there’s no place for a bad attitude. Each team member is responsible to one another for staying upbeat and positive. When everyone embraces this thinking, the entire team radiates with positive energy. A ‘can’t do’ attitude does just the opposite. It drains energy and poisons the team. In addition to setting the standard, leaders must know the pulse of the team and ensure positive attitudes prevail from top to bottom. When people focus on what can be done rather than what can’t, they align to create a positive team environment fueled by sustainable momentum. We can’t choose many of the challenges we face in this life, but we can choose how we address them.”

“Wherever you have contact with others, whether it is with co-workers online, a stranger in a passing car, a neighbor at their mailbox, or your spouse in the hallway… a simple smile goes a long way in spreading some sunshine. And a little sunshine can make all the difference right now.” – Al Ritter
A new miracle doctor had just arrived in town. He could cure anything and anybody, and everyone was amazed with what he could do – everyone except for Mr. Thompson, the town skeptic.
Grumpy old Mr. Thompson went to this ‘miracle doctor’ to prove that he wasn’t anybody special. He went and told the doctor, “Hey, doc, I have lost my sense of taste. I can’t taste nothin’, so what are ya goin’ to do?”
The doctor scratched his head and mumbled to himself a little, then told Mr. Thompson, “What you need is jar number 47.”
So the doctor brought the jar and told Mr. Thompson to taste it.
He tasted it and immediately spit it out, “This is gross!” he yelled.
“I just restored your sense of taste Mr. Thompson,” said the doctor.
So Mr. Thompson went home very mad.
One month later, Mr. Thompson went back to the doctor along with a new problem, “Doc,” he started, “I can’t remember anything!”
Thinking he had the doctor stumped now, he waited as the doctor scratched his head, mumbled to himself a little, and told Mr. Thompson, “What you need is jar number 47…”
Immediately Mr. Thompson was cured and fled the room!

“All of a sudden, my haters become elevators because God’s got a plan, if I’ll just submit to it. And on the other side of this, the thing that I despise will be the thing I look back on and say, ‘That defined me. If I hadn’t gone through that, I wouldn’t be where I am. Thank you Jesus for the pain. It was the pain that got me to the promise.” – Jeremy Foster
“A decision is made with the brain. A commitment is made with the heart. Therefore, a commitment is much deeper and more binding than a decision. Commitment involves feeling as well as thinking. It is the result of a well-documented formula: thoughts plus feelings equal action. Everything you do has to be born in the brain as an idea. That idea gives birth to a feeling. You act on the basis of the feeling. Therefore, your actions turn your thoughts into reality once you have been motivated by your feelings. The deeper and more intense your feelings, the more powerful the motivation to turn thoughts into action. The thought creates a vision. The feeling makes the vision glow. Action brings the vision to life. What are you feeling today?” – Nido Qubein
