Bible Reading: Proverbs 23:7, Romans 12:2

Memory Verse:  Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.  Romans 12:2 (NLT)

This is a parable about the power of attitude. Be blessed. “I was at the airport when a taxi driver approached me. The first thing I noticed in the cab was a phrase: Duck or Eagle? You decide! The second thing I noticed was a clean, shiny cab, the driver well dressed, white shirt and well pressed trousers, with a tie. The taxi driver got out, opened the door for me and said: ‘I am John, your chauffeur. While I’m putting your luggage away, I’d like you to read on this card what my mission is.’ On the card was written: John’s Mission –  To get my clients to their destination quickly, safely and economically, while providing a friendly environment. I was impressed.

The interior of the cab was equally clean. John asked me: ‘Would you like some coffee?’. Joking with him I said: ‘No, I’d rather have a juice. He immediately replied, ‘No problem. I have a thermos with regular juice and also diet juice, as well as water’. He also told me: If you wish to read, I have today’s newspaper and also some magazines. As the journey began, John told me: ‘These are the radio stations I have and this is the repertoire they play.’ As if that wasn’t enough, John even asked me if the temperature of the air conditioning was good. Then he told me what was the best route to my destination and if I wanted to talk to him or if he preferred not be interrupted. I asked: ‘Do you always serve your customers like this?’ ‘No,’ he replied. Not always. Only in the last two years. My first few years as a taxi driver I spent most of my time complaining just like the other taxi drivers.

One day, I listened to a doctor who was a specialist in personal development. He wrote a book called: Who you are makes the difference! He said: If you get up in the morning expecting to have a lousy day, you certainly will. Don’t be a duck! Be an eagle! Ducks just make noise and complain, eagles soar above the pack. I was all the time making noise and complaining. So I decided to change my attitudes and be an eagle. I looked at the other cabs and drivers. The dirty cabs, the unfriendly drivers, and the dissatisfied customers. I decided to make some changes. Since my customers responded well, I made a few more changes. In my first year as an eagle, I doubled my turnover. This year, I have already quadrupled it. John was different. He offered a limousine service in a regular cab. It doesn’t matter whether you work in an office, with maintenance, a teacher, a civil servant, a politician, an executive, an employee, a freelancer, or a taxi driver! How do you behave?

Quote:  A positive attitude can really make dreams come true – it did for me  David Bailey

Prophetic Decree:  Receive grace to see from the spectrum of Light, in Jesus name.
