2 Lead The Field
First published in 1976, the book is about success through specific traits a person can obtain. Nightingale speaks about attitude and how changing it will definitely change your whole life. Attitude is the feeling or opinion about something or someone, and the way of behaving that is caused by this. Lead the Field is one of Nightingale’s best fruits of mind. It is our attitude towards life that determines how life is going to return to us. “We get back what we put in,” this is what attitude means. It is not about you as a person reacting to life’s situations. No! It is actually about life reacting to you, to your own actions,
Remember this: the world would give you back a REFLECTION of your own attitude. If you give good attitude, you get good results, poor attitude, poor results, and if you put fair or average attitude, you absolutely get fair or average results. Most of us do this last one. We do not put a poor attitude on a dily basis or an extremely good one. The majority of us put a moderate fair attitude, and wait to react to whatever stimuli they encounter. If life gives them good they reflect it, if bad they reflect it as well; a chameleon!
In order to wear an excellent attitude every day, Nightingale suggests putting the seeds of two character attributes; gratitude and expecting the best. Wake up every day and feel grateful for being given the chance to live. Second, find the idea of fulfilling your goal agreeable.
