“The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitude.”
Just awesome! Given this is the first famous quote of the New Year, William James’s words seemed very appropriate. My friend actually showed me this quote just yesterday, and I instantly through my other quote aside.
William James was an American Philosopher, Psychologist, and Physician. He was one of the leading thinkers of the 19th century, and one of the most influential philosophers of all time. Perhaps his discovery is one of the greatest of all time. It puts so much reality into perspective. If each one of us believed in ourselves and carried a better attitude, can you imagine how that would alter the entire world as a whole? With ourselves it is so simple, you want a good life have a good attitude. This is precisely what I have been working on, I am trying to carry a more positive life style and I am filling it with positivism. Things come to me easier and easier as I gain more and more confidence in my attitude. I am on a quest to love everything in life and with the right attitude I will.
What kind of attitude will you take into 2014 with you?
