Create Your Day

An ABC Message That’s as Easy as 123

Good morning all and Happy Wednesday!

I am sure many of you have seen this before, but I came across it again the other day and this one of those items that just speaks to me:

Coincidence or Not?

If…

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Equals…

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

Then K+N+O+W+L+E+D+G+E:

11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5= 96%

H+A+R+D+W+O+R+K:

8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

Both are important, but fall just short of 100%,

BUT: A+T+T+I+T+U+D+E:

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5= 100%

I love this because it reminds me that all the knowledge and hard work in the world will not get you where you need/want to be unless you have the attitude to go with it. Your attitude dictates how you approach things, and if want to do your best you have to believe you are capable, if you face anything in your life with a negative attitude you will have a negative feeling about the outcome even when you did everything you could.

Think about a time in your life when you had something to do and you thought to yourself ‘this is going to be so hard’ or ‘I am not good enough for this’ or ‘I am not going to do this right’, then you did it and accomplished it. What were the first words you spoke to yourself? For me those first words are usually something like ‘well, you could have done better’ or ‘I guess that’s good enough’. Is good enough really good enough to make you feel proud? When I approach something with a can-do attitude, such as ‘I can figure this out’ or ‘this should be challenging’, then my words are ‘HA, got it’ or ‘what’s next’ or ‘you can’t get me that easily’ and I feel PROUD of myself!
