Failure Is An Inside Job

In our culture, too many people bleive that contentment come from attaining material possessions or positions of power. But they aren't the keys to contentment either. If yo are tempted to believe that they are, remember the words of John D. Rockefeller. When a journalist asked him how much wealth was enough, the millionaire, who was at the time one of the richest and most powerful men in the world, answered, "Just a little more".

Contentment comes from having a positive attitiude. It means:
  • Expecting the best in everything - not the worst
  • Remaining upbeat - even when you get beat up
  • Seeing solutions in every problem - not problems in every solution
  • Believing in yourself - even when others believe you have failed
  • Holding on to hope - even when others say it's hopeless.
No matter what happens to you, a positive attitude comes from within. Your circumstances and your contentment are unrelated.

~John C. Maxwell, in Falling Forward
