Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 275 – Mindset


“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.”

Zig Ziglar

Gotta tell you, Spidey, I am loving your chosen quote this week!

It really hones in on mindset, to me. If you want to do something, or get somewhere, you have to be positive about it, and be prepared for it, struggle or smooth passagee, to get where you want.

It’s no point sitting back on your haunches, and thinking “It’s in the bag”, because your grades are high, or because everyone always says how capable you are.

If you have the above, maybe you get a head start on achieving your goals, but if you don’t put the effort in, and expect that things will just come to you, it ain’t happening, mate.

Whereas, if you are not ‘blessed’ with the same academic abilities, or even sporting prowess, of others, that doesn’t mean you give up.

Having the belief in yourself and the attitude to match will give you a boost, then the work you put in will shoot you higher than ‘Mr Haunches’ above.

Because you know you aren’t there ‘yet‘. That is the key word.


Yet will give you the belief that it will happen, and you are working towards it. You haven’t given up because someone said you aren’t good enough.

No. You are going to keep trying and practicing, and believing.

And you’ll do it!

I’ll share a little quote I love to keep in my mind.

“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.”

Oscar Wilde

You can still reach unimaginable heights, as long as you belive.

So… tell me, have you ever been told you won’t be able to do something which you have been able to prove them wrong about?

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps  And enjoy your week! ❤ 

Share the love 💜

    I love this! There is a wonderful song that is a video on Sesame Street, “The Power of Yet.” We play this for kids and teachers alike – all the time.

    I agree that attitude is very important and does make up for a lot, but you do have to have the basic building blocks.

    I love the Zig Ziglar quote and used it as a career counselor. We all need it from time to time. Another good one is: The trouble with opportunity is that is always comes disguised as hard work, Herbert V. Prochnow (Thomas Edison said something similar)

    Quite. Yet is so important. It’ll be alright in the end and if it’s not alright it’s not the end

    Plenty of times…Great reverse psychology. Someone once said you can’t stand up in front of an audience and do stand up comedy……..🤭
