Jeff Keller tells us that attitude is everything if you truely want to live a successful life and on the very first page he opens with the following quote:
”Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal
Nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong attitude.”– Thomas Jefferson
In Attitude is Everything, Jeff Keller shares with us twelve lessons that we can learn to help us improve our attitude about ourselves, our careers, others and how we see the world.
Jeff puts it nicely when he says that our attitude is our “Window” to the world. Everything we see in the world is seen through our own attitude and that’s why some people react so differently to the exact same circumstance. Most people who perhaps loose their job, think this is a terrible catastrophe, how they going to pay their mortgage or feed the family? Yet, some people when they lose their jobs are able to look at it from a positive point of view and see it as an opportunity to grow and find something better.
Jeff tells us how we all start with a clean attitude “window” but over the years it becomes smudged from criticisms, ridicule, rejection and disappointment.
In Attitude is Everything, Jeff tells us we become what we think about. Our circumstances reflect what we think about and need to picture ourselves to success. In Attitude is everything, Jeff gives us 2 examples of Famous people who were able to picture themselves to success.
In an interview, Celine Dion was asked if she ever dreamed at the start of her career that someday she’d sell millions of records and sing in front of tens of thousands of people. Her response was that none of this surprised her as she had pictured the whole thing since she was five years old.
The other example given in this book is that of Jim Carrey. In 1990, while he was still a relatively unknown comedian, he wrote a cheque to himself for $10 Million for “acting services rendered” and post-dated it thanksgiving 1995. Jim Carrey knew he was going to be a success and every day he looked at this cheque. In 1994 he was paid $7 million for his role in “Dumb and Dumber” and in 1995 he earned many more millions.
I personally have decided to follow Jim Carrey’s example and I have written a cheque to myself for £20 Million and post-dated it 10 years for Christmas 2017. I have this cheque next to the PC on my desk where I can see it every day.
Obviously just imagining where you want to be in life alone is not going to get you there; you need to make a commitment to do what it takes to reach your goals. Even if you don’t know exactly how you going to achieve your goal, be committed to make consistent action towards your goals and the “how to” will start making itself apparent.
Throughout the book, Jeff keller gives examples from his own life, from celebrity people and from everyday people that he meets on his travels. The book is jammed with inspirational quotes and life changing stories. It really is amazing changing your attitude can change your life. Attitude is Everything!
