How you see the…

How you see the world first determines your attitude, and then your attitude determines how the world sees you.
By – Mark Amend.

I spent a lot of time thinking about this quote because it seems kind of like you are stuck with your life, but the more I thought about it, the more I realized that is so NOT true.  Sure, when you are young, you pretty much see the world through your parent’s eyes, and if they are negative, you’ll tend to see the negative, and this in turn can color how you are perceived by others.  That seems so depressing, but then I realized – NO!!!!  We have the ability to change how we see the world, and in turn how the world sees us.  That is totally within our control.  So if you’re feeling as if the world isn’t thinking too highly of you, remember, YOU have the power to change that.
