From My Perspective - - -
The importance of having and maintaining a right attitude cannot be denied or debated. One will face the challenges of life with either a positive or negative attitude. If one’s attitude is positive, the prospect of success is considerable. However, if one’s attitude is negative, there is little possibility that one will experience anything other than failures.
The motivational speaker, Zig Ziglar, is known to have said: “Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” Part of what is being stated is to gain an understanding of what these components are. Attitude is: “the way one thinks about things. One can have either a positive or a negative attitude for instance.” In terms of Aptitude: “it is a talent (or giftedness) one has for something.” For instance, a Linguist is one who has “an aptitude for languages” and that enables him/her to learn them faster and better than one with a lesser aptitude. The area of Altitude refers to how successful one can be and the number of goals one will achieve.
