What one sees depends on how one sees.
— Søren Kierkegaard

When it comes to growth, attitude will either make you or break you. A good attitude acts like a fertilizer and invigorates and accelerates your development. A bad attitude, like poison, spoils any chance for growth. 

The good news is we can choose to have a good attitude, even in a bad situation. I say make it a habit. Discipline yourself to remain optimistic even when circumstances get difficult. Abraham Lincoln once said, “We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” It’s all how we see it.
