On Attitude and Talent

Which has greater growth potential: Attitude or Talent?

This post comes from John Maxwell on his recent book The Difference Maker.

His assumptions?

  • For people show say that "attitude is everything," we know that isn’t true. Talent matters.
  • On the other hand, some people dismiss attitude as inconsequential.

Maxwell says that attitude is the difference maker. He believes it so much that he wrote a book with that title. Whatever God-given talent you have can be taken farther with a great attitude.

BOTTOMLINE: Says Maxwell: "A good attitude is a lot like success. A person must go through a process to have it, and the hardest part is that you have to keep working at it. Having a good attitude is one of the key decisions I made early in life, and I wake up every morning determined to make my attitude all it can be. Why? So that it can make a difference in my life."
