“Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious—the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. Put into practice what you learned from me, what you heard and saw and realized. Do that, and God, who makes everything work together, will work you into his most excellent harmonies.”

Philippians 4:8 The Message Bible

What we dwell on affects our thoughts and thoughts affect our attitude. Dennis Mannering said, “Attitudes are contagious. Are yours worth catching?”and it was Winston Churchill who said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a difference.”Attitude on an airplane describes the horizontal relationship with the runway. If the plane’s attitude is not aligned correctly, the plane will make contact with the ground at the wrong angle and can crash. Attitude in your business can break or make you. Check your attitude.
