Attitude~Ability~Motivation~~~Susie Austin

Ability

is what you’re capable of,

Motivation

 determines what you do,

Attitude

 determines how well you do it.

We have heard many times, “to the best of my ability” but what does that exactly mean? I believe we have much more ability than we think we do. Are there times you have said I can’t believe I was able to do that! We are capable of more than we think we are however many times we don’t recognize it right away.  Look back a few years, I am sure there are things you did not think you were able to do? Expect more from yourself, believe you have the ability to move forward in many areas and with motivation and attitude you will accomplish great things.

Motivation determines what we do, the driving force that gains momentum as you move forward. Define motivation for yourself in such a way it will release momentum towards attaining your dreams, then you need to develop passion.  Passion with emotion is the strongest force in determining your destiny.  If you feel passionate about something then motivation is automatic.     

Attitude is essential to your success! Attitudes drive behavior. By choosing your attitude you get into this mood and you will send out a message that everyone understands, consciously or unconsciously.

Almost always, you have a choice as to what attitude to adopt. You can choose to be positive every day. I believe if you make a conscious decision on a daily basis and remind yourself throughout the day this can become a reality.

Your attitude will determine how well you do things but more importantly it will define who you are. If you have a positive attitude you will move forward in many ways it will help you stay motivated and focus on your passion, dreams and goals.  

These are three very important things to be talking about in one day but today I was lead in this direction. There are times in your life you will have challenges and days may not always be perfect. I have to laugh as I myself had one of those challenging days yesterday, which I can laugh about today. While trying to make a Dr. apt the receptionist told me it would be six weeks before I could see the Dr. I responded by telling her,” no thanks I will most likely be dead by then”  This is not my normal character but the key here is I can laugh about it today, and the beauty of this is, we get a brand new start every day!   

Start each new day fresh with a great attitude, reading something motivational in the morning helps. This will help motivate you, and you will realize you have the ability to make this an amazing day!

  1. That is so true – The Mind can Achieve – what the Mind believes – to paraphrase W. Clement Stone. It is the driving force behind what we are and what we are to be. Your thoughts control yourself and your mind controls your thoughts. With that you can be and do anything. And the first step is that positive attitude!
