StartUp Tip #142: Attitude is everything

wpid-42721-o

Often when people justify their bad attitudes they say: “I can’t help it, it’s who I am, I was born this way.”

No, you were not born that way, you became that way.

And if you can become that way, you can become the other way. If you want.

Attitude is a learned skill

You can learn math, Swahili, blogging.

You can learn coding, too.

But you can also learn to be more empathetic, passionate, focused, loyal, patient, consistent, persistent and twenty-seven other attitudes.

If you can learn to be better at something, it is a skill.

And if it is a skill, it is yours if you want it.

Which is great news, isn’t it?
