Control Your Attitude & Your Altitude For a Smoother Flight Through Life
Pilots know how to avoid a crash. Two keys are attitude and altitude …
Altitude Is Life
Altitude is how high above the terrain your are. The greater your altitude, the less likely you are to run into obstacles, and the more time you have to recover from storms, turbulence, or mechanical trouble.
Attitude Determines Outcome
“Orientation of the aircraft relative to Earth's horizon. It indicates pitch
(fore and aft tilt) and bank
(side to side tilt) and is a primary instrument for flight in instrument meteorological conditions
. Attitude indicators are also used on manned spacecraft, where they indicate the craft's yaw angle (nose left or right) as well as pitch and roll, relative to a fixed-space inertial reference frame
Stay elevated … and keep a good stable attitude. In life, our attitude is revealed by what we say.
“I believe the single most important decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my attitude choice. It’s more important than my past. It’s more important than my education or my bankroll or my success or my failures. My attitude choice is more important than my fame or my pain or what others think or say about me or my position or my circumstances. Attitudes keep me going or cripple my progress. Attitude alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope.” — Strengthening Your Grip, Pastor Charles Swindoll
There are 3 Keys to Remember About Attitude and Altitude
- First, the attitude reveals the true person. “But those things which proceed out of the mouth come from the heart, and they defile a man.” Matthew 15:18
- Second, the attitude predicts the future. “For as a person thinks in his heart, so is he.” (Proverbs 23:7, NKJV).
- Third, our attitude CONTROLS our altitude. And altitude is life. “Whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” Philippians 4:8New King James Version (NKJV)
