  • No. I do not agree.

    Having a good attitude does not make a person grow wings to fly.

    Having a good attitude allows a person to explore alternatives and to work for a goal. It doesn’t create solutions. It allows a person to pursue solutions.

    Finally, not all difficulties are overcome. Learning to live with something is not the same thing as overcoming something. Consider the woman who lived in an iron lung for 50 years. She wrote books. She got a college degree. She did this and some other things from the iron lung.
    Here’s the big part. She never left the iron lung. She never healed or overcame her difficulty. She only learned to live with it.

  • No- you can’t overcome everything. But being proactive in life and working towards your goals gives you a much better chance of being successful.

  • Clearly not. According to christianity, Jesus was pretty cool about the whole crucifixion thing. Look where that got him…
