Having the right attitude is key to reaching your goals. In a Harvard study, researchers found that 85% of our successes are determined by a person's attitude and only 15% was determined by the person's technical skills. Think about how key that is and what an exciting and empowering point! With those percentages being true, then I can easily control 85% of my success. If you were to take a "gamble" on anything positive and the odds-makers offered 85% chance of success - we would all feel very optimistic about our chances for success. With this equation, we know that we can achieve success by working on a having a positive attitude.
