When instructing a student to pilot an airplane, many instructors teach the student to remember to control the nose of the plane. Point the nose up the plane climbs. Nose down, that’s where you're going. (power to climb is assumed).
An instructor reduced the principle to me with this easy to remember bit:
“Attitude determines altitude!”
This gem is true in piloting as well as in life. Attitude may not change your circumstance, but the right attitude can improve your ability to climb out of situations mentally.
We all know some well-educated people, possessing a higher than average IQ who never seem to get out of the rut. It becomes evident that their attitude is out of whack!
Ziglar Ziglar taught his students to “get a check-up from the neck up!” Paul said it like this:
Ephesians 4:23, “And Be renewed in the Spirit of your mind.”
