Attitude is everything.

This is by far the most vital lesson I have learnt since I am studying stoicism.

A classic illustration of “Attitude is Everything” I read somewhere is the presence of a rock in front you.

huge rock in front of you can either be seen as an obstacle or a protection. It completely depends on the attitude.

As Marcus Aurelius aptly said,

“External things are not the problem. It’s your assessment of them. Which you can erase right now.”

Practical tip-

Whenever someone asks you “How are you?”

Instead of replying “I’m good”, “I am fine”…

try replying with a big smile and enthusiasm like, “I am AWESOME!”, “I’m Great!”, “I’m amazing”.

Within a week of practicing this, you’ll feel the difference in your mindset.

(Oh, by the way, there’s a really cool book with the title “Attitude Is Everything” as well)

Thank you!
