Zig Ziglar said, “You cannot tailor-make the situations in life but you can tailor-make the attitudes to fit those situations.” This is perhaps one of the simplest facts of life but one that so many wrestle with. Not every situation we face is going to be pleasant. As a leader you are in a position to not just handle those situations but to be the example of how with the right attitude you can make them fit into a greater purpose. It’s the attitude you have not the situations you face that are the marks of your leadership. Remember, long after the situation is over you will still be dealing with the consequence of your attitude. Choose wisely.
