Give me attitude over talent. Give me will over skill


576030_10151957016835634_639006807_nWe have all heard the saying “I would rather be luckey than good.”

I will take a team of average talent with great attitude over a handful of indiffernt superstars any day of the week.

In The London Telegraph an article stated

“The vast majority of businesses value a positive attitude to work over a perfect
set of qualifications in job interviews.”

You can teach skills. You can’t teach people to have a good attitude.

One of my favorite quotes reads……

The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on
life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than
the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than
successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than
appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company… a church…
a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude
we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past… we cannot change the
fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The
only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our
attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I
react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.”
