Most people think they begin their career the moment they graduate from High School and acquire a job. However, this simply is not true. We start our careers at birth.
The attitudes we develop throughout our youth play and important part in our success as adults. Think about this; if we learn to develop a positive attitude – certainly this will affect how successful we become as an adult. However, the opposite is also true; if we learn to be a negative person – than that attitude affects our success as well.
This is why the attitudes and character we are developing throughout our life is so important. If fact, your attitude is the foundation of your success!
In Calgary Canada there is the Calgary Tower. It’s a structure that is 626 feet high and weights more than 12,000 tons. The interesting thing is that 7,000 of those tons in underground – in the foundation.
That’s how important your foundation is!! The stronger the foundation – the bigger the building. In life, if your foundation is solid – your attitude, character, confidence, self- esteem – the higher you’ll go in life!
