Attitudes That Attract Success
In Hawaii, there is a custom of
giving leis as an act of
hospitality, honor or friendship.
A lei is usually made up of
flowers strung together and
hung around a person’s neck.
We give leis to say “Thank you”
and we give leis to say
Our attitude is like a lei. Each of
us has one, but we have the
choice of what we are going to
string together to make up that
lei. If you string together a
col lection of dried fish,
everything starts smelling fishy!
If you string together old
socks, the whole world has this
funny odor to it.
Your attitude is like a fragrance
you carry around with you. The
difference is that skunks carry
a bad odor while a beautiful
Hawaiian plumeria blossom
carries a fragrance. Whether
you like it or not, each of us
carries one of the above. You
choose which it will be.
