More Altitude and Less Attitude!

This is a saying they use on some phone commercial on TV. A mountain climbers is being snotty about his cell phone coverage at the top of a mountain and the guide says "Let's have a little more altitude and a lot less attitude!"

Have you ever wanted what would happen if everyone had a little less attitude and strive for a little more altitude in life?

I am a strong believer that a positive attitude will get you 98% of the way towards purposeful living as much as a negative attitude will hold you back and bring you down.

The word attitude means to have a position assumed for a specific purpose (Websters Dictionary). Usually you think of attitude as being cocky or stuck up or just plain difficult, but it really is assuming a purpose or position for a certain reason.

So, what if we assumed a purpose, aka attitude, of achieving altitude! What if working and living 'up' was our specific purpose? What if we strive for more altitude and less negative attitude?

It really gets to be simple to do as it all goes back to purpose. What is your purpose? What is your life's passion? What drives you? What is it that will bring you to purposeful living? What will give you more altitude?

If you really look at the answers to these questions there will be only one thing to really do! Have a little less attitude - at least attitude that will get in your way.

So, today during the first weekend in March make a personal statement! Make a statement that you will strive for more altitude with less attitude! Live with purpose and live positively!
