Excellence is not a skill, It’s an attitude April 18, 2012

Yesterday, I observed an example of how confidence and attitude can make a great difference. While traveling yesterday, there were two boys and two girls sitting right across me.

While all the four were of the same age, two of them were sparkling and attractive while the other two were dull.

I realized that all four of them had average features and looks and in fact the dull guys would have scored more in a beauty contest (if all of them had their mouth shut!)

The difference, I realized was in their confidence and positive attitude.

That’s why,

Excellence is not a skill. It is an attitude.
- Ralph Marston
 

If I have lost confidence in myself, I have the universe against me.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson

The man who has confidence in himself gains the confidence of others.
- Hasidic

Your attitude and confidence in matters around money can make a big difference. Not just knowledge about money.
