We Got That Attitude

Don't care what they may say
We got that attitude
Don't care what they may do
We got that attitude

Hey, we got that P.M.A. (positive mental attitude)
Hey, we got that P.M.A.

'Attitude' by the Bad Brains

I think this pretty much sums it up.

Step up to the start line, do your best HR impersonation and enjoy the ride.  Whether you Q or not you and your dog are going to leave the ring with a smile on your face and at the end of the day that's all that matters anyway.  The rest is just background noise.

Attitude is the easiest thing to change.  You just decide to do it and you do it, simple as that.  You don't need to pay for some fancy pants mental management guru.  Just put on your pink pirate socks and go dive off that stage.

Easy peasy.

Also as it turns out lots of studies show that one bad apple does spoil the whole bunch, girl, so if you have someone at your trial or club meeting or class who loves to spread their misery and vitriol around it's good if you can shut them down right away.  Shove them in a crate with a Kong, stuff them in a x-pen, whatever but don't let them harsh your buzz.

  2. Yay! That was 100% my intent.

  3. Oh, man, love the pink pirate socks! That's where it's at! Improved my attitude immediately upon seeing them.

  4. Aww.... I can't decide which are cuter, the baby skunks or the baby buffalo...
