What started as the “housing crisis” that turned into a “credit crisis” that led to the “bailouts” that will probably lead to more “bailouts” is the daily topic of virtually every newscast, truck driver, an if not over every home over dinner.

All that being said I am sure at some point you have asked yourself how does this affect me ?

Success starts with a smile

What is attitude? Well, it can be explained as a stated of mind with which you approach a situation. Ultimately, we have control over only one thing: the way we think. We may not understand it but we become what we think about the most.

All winners have a positive attitude. Choosing to adopt an attitude of gratitude at all times, no matter what circumstances or events occur, puts you into harmony with the ideals you desire to see manifest in your life.

Success starts with a Smile and a right attitude
