Attitude.  One word, lots of different meanings, and while the third and fourth definitions are important, especially to pilots and ballet dancers, it’s the first two definitions that interest me the most.  Growing up, I’m sure you were told many times to watch your attitude by your parents, usually because your attitude was negative, or, for lack of a better word, bitchy.  Chances are you did have an attitude, and it was probably pretty darn negative at times, and even if you weren’t aware of it, that attitude colored everything you did.  And guess what?  It’s still the exact same today.  We all have things we deplore doing, but they have to be done.  When you focus on how much we hate the task at hand, it seems endless, and is fraught with difficulties.  But if we approach it with a more positive attitude, that same task can be a bit more palatable.  Our attitude colors everything we do, and honestly, how well we do it.  So do your best to cultivate a positive attitude, no matter what the task.  It will make things go better, and save the ‘tude for Friday nights out with your friends!
