Attitude is your mindset and opinion about someone or something. Your attitude makes you who you are. Attitude drives Effort – your language, behaviors, and all your actions. Think about an athlete that wakes up early and trains everyday. Attitude and effort can be applied to: learning a skill, physical fitness, business success, preparing for an exam, recovering from an injury or developing a relationship.

Attitude – our attitude is purely our own choice. No matter what people say or do to us, we have the decision of how we will react. Life events are going to happen, whether we complain about them or not. Our attitude determines how those events will effect us positively or negatively.

Effort – The greatest factor determining our success may be our effort. And our effort is often determined by our attitude. How much effort are you willing to give in order to succeed? Effort is the one thing an athlete is in complete control of. You either do your work or you don’t! You listen or you don’t! You eat right or you don’t! You study film or you don’t!

“The harder I work, the luckier I get.” – Samuel Goldwyn.
