It is wonderful to receive paychecks on a regular basis, get a good attitude if you want to keep getting them. I am always amazed when I speak with someone who has a bad attitude at work and wonders why she either gets fired from her job or has clients stop coming to her business. While it is true that attitude determines altitude, attitude also determines whether or not paychecks continue to arrive.
When I was a young girl I had a job that I did not like. I mistakenly thought the job was beneath me and that my employer should be thrilled to have someone of my caliber on the payroll. I had a bad attitude and I was too young and inexperienced to shut up and behave better. As a result I was fired. My employer told me that since I was snot happy with my job my job was being taken away from me. Hopefully you have no idea what it is like to be fired from a job for not being happy.
