IT'S ALL ABOUT ATTITUDE!
There is a story told about a young man looking for a place where he and his family could settle down. As he approached the outskirts of a small town he encountered an elderly man and asked him, "What kind of people live in this town?"
"What kind of people lived in the last place you lived?" the old man responded.
"They were selfish and unfriendly, we hated it," replied the young man.
"You will find the same thing here in our town," answered the old man.
A few days later another young traveler approached the same town and asked the same old man,"What kind
of people live in this town?"
Again the old man replied, "What kind of people lived in the town you came from?"
"They were honest, sincere and friendly. We were sad to leave," was the reply.
"Then you will find the same type of people here. Welcome to our town," said the old man.
To a significant degree, your attitudes create the world you see. If you think other people (employees, coworkers, neighbors, family, etc.) are basically lazy, unmotivated and untrustworthy, they'll no doubt prove you right. However, if you expect the best from other people because they possess an inherent worth, dignity and potential, they will usually rise to meet your expectations. It's all about attitude!
