Only you can !

You can

Better keep yourself clean and bright , you are the window through which you must see the world.

Only you can

Think of your attitude as the mental filter through which you experience the world. Some people see the world through the filter of optimism while others see life through a filter of pessimism.

You can

You can't always control circumstances but you can control your own thought .

We all start out in life with a good attitude or should I say a clean mental window . Just watch young children . They are always laughing and giggling . They have a sunny disposition . They love to explore new things  . Consider the attitude who's learning to walk , when he stumbles and falls down, what does he do? He doesn't blame the carpet. He doesn't point fingers at his mother or father for giving him lousy instructions . He doesn't quit . He smiles, gets up again and makes another attempt . He keeps going for weeks and weeks and weeks with positive attitude until he gets it right ! His window is squeaky clean and he feels like he can conquer the world. But as you know , there comes a point where life starts throwing some dirt at our window . And here's what happens. 

Our window gets splattered by criticism from parents and teachers.

Our window get smeared by rejection.

Our window get clouded by doubt .

Clean your window

The problem is, the dirt keeps building up, and all too many people do nothing about it. They lose their enthusiasm . They get frustrated and depressed . And most tragically , they give up on their dreams . All because they failed to clean their attitude window.

It's your job to keep your window clean. You always have choice . You can leave the filth on your window and look at life through a smeared glass. But there are consequence to that approach , and they're not very pretty .

You'll go through life negative and frustrated . You'll be unhappy . You'll achieve only a fraction of what you're capable of achieving . There's better way. When you choose to take out your squeegee and clean your window , life will be brighter and'll be healthier and happier. You'll set some ambitious goals. And begin to achieve them . Your dreams will come alive again.

There is nothing either good or bad , but thinking makes it so.

Everything can be taken from a man but one thing : the last of the human freedoms - to choose ones attitude in any given set of circumstances , to choose ones own way... Even though conditions such as lack of sleep , insufficient food and various mental stresses may suggest that the inmates were bound to react in certain ways, in the final analysis it becomes clear that the sort of person the prisoner became was the result of an inner decision , and not the result of camp infuences alone .
