BG’s Positively Speaking

Take Yourself to the TOP!

In my messages and book ‘Positively Speaking,’ I constantly mention that your good attitude is the most critical factor contributing to your success. Over the years, I have had many people challenge that assumption. It has been pointed out that hard work is the key; others have said that being in the right place at the right time is the answer. Some have asserted that it’s who you know; others say what you know matters most. True, working hard, being in the right place and knowing the right people will get you most of the way there, but if you have the wrong attitude, the doors of opportunity will not be fully opened to you. Now, there is a formula that proves that attitude will take you to the top.

Here’s the formula that proves the assumption:

If: A through Z is represented as 1 through 26. Then:

H-A-R-D-W-O-R-K  = 8+1+18+4+23+15+18+11 = 98%

K-N-O-W-L-E-D-G-E  = 11+14+15+23+12+5+4+7+5 = 96%

But , A-T-T-I-T-U-D-E  = 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

So, there you have it, a good attitude trumps all else regarding achieving success.

Hard work and knowledge will get you almost there, but your attitude will get you to the top. If you have any doubts, take a close look at those who are at the top of their game.

They all have a positive attitude

Have You Heard ….?

Gas Pump Glitch: Imagine finding out one day that you can abuse a fuel pump glitch to get as much gas as you want for free. Would you do it? Well, one 45-year-old woman from Lincoln, Nebraska, sure did, and now she’s paying for it. According to Bosselman Enterprise, the corporation that owns the Pump and Pantry near West O Street and Sun Valley Boulevard, Dawn Thompson used an exploit to get thousands of gallons of gas over six and a half months without anyone noticing. Somehow, the woman realized that she could access the pump’s demo mode by swiping her rewards card twice, and from there, she could pump gas without getting charged. She was thus able to pump over 7,400 gallons, which resulted in a theft of almost $28,000

Meanwhile, At The Station! A 42-year-old resident of Ajax, Ontario, was arrested and charged with impaired driving on Feb. 20 at the Durham Regional Police station, where he had driven to complain about his arrest for public intoxication earlier that morning. When he arrived at the station, the man asked to speak with a supervisor. Still, officers noticed he seemed to be intoxicated and, after confirming he had driven himself, issued a breathalyzer test, which the man failed. His license was suspended, and his vehicle was impounded.

The Punch Line

Two friends are walking down the street, thinking of something to do. One friend turns to the other and says, “Let’s go get a drink; this new place does THE best punch you’ll ever drink.” So they go to the bar and walk straight up to the bartender. “Bartender, two glasses of your best punch, please.” The bartender replies sternly, “If you want some punch, you’ll have to get in line like everybody else.”  The friends turn and look around, but there’s no punch line…

Training A Parrot

An old lady walked into a pet store, found a parrot, and asked the owner if she could buy it. The owner said, “Heck no! That parrot has a bad mouth! Trust me, you do not want that parrot!” She said, “I can teach it good manners.” But when she got home, the parrot said a bad word, so she put it in the freezer for 10 seconds. She took it out and said, “Did you learn your lesson?” It said another bad word, so she put it back in for 30 seconds. She took it out and asked if it learned its lesson yet. The parrot said, “Brr… I learned my lesson, but what did the chicken do?”
