The Power of Attitude

Filed under: Quotes — H.Tonguç Yılmaz @ 5:13 pm

Our lives are not determined by what happens to us, but by how we respond to what happens; not by what life brings us, but by attitude we bring to life. A positive attitude causes a chain reaction of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst… a spark that creates extraordinary results.

From a strictly mathematical viewpoint proof goes like this ;)

If
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z is represented as:
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26.

Then
K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E
11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

And
H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K
8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

But
A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E
1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

So, one can then conclude with mathematical certainty that while Knowledge and Hard Work will get you close, Attitude will get you there :)
