There’s nothing as powerful as attitude. It dictates your response to the present and determines the quality of your future. If you don’t control your attitude, it will control you.
More opportunities have been lost, withheld, or forfeited because of attitude than from any other cause. Attitude creates a more powerful distinction in life than beauty, power, title, or social status. It is more important than wealth, and it can keep one poor.
Your attitude is a manifestation of who you think you are, and the story of the lion and the sheep illustrates this well. If you believe in your heart that you’re merely a sheep, you’ll stay in the confines that others have placed you in or that you have made for yourself.
However, if you think you are a lion, you will venture beyond human limitation and embark on the courageous life you were born to live. Your boldness will inspire and influence others to believe God for great things.
No amount of training in leadership skills or management methods can substitute for right attitudes. Even if you have a powerful title, your life won’t have significant impact unless your attitude reflects the unshakeable confidence of knowing who God has made you.
Believe what your Heavenly Father says about you! Then go out and ROAR!
