7 Mindsets at Mashburn

Attitude of Gratitude teaches that you can choose the positives or the negatives in your life as the foundation on which to build your future. Choose the positives, and you’re on your way toward extraordinary success; choose the negatives, and you will likely start (or continue) a downward spiral. Remember to: Seek positives from every experience and be thankful for all you have!
