Consider attitude, it is the one factor in education that is universally regarded as the critically important key to success and failure. In education, a good attitude overcomes all disadvantages, where as a bad attitude defeats all advantages. Attitude First presents three strategies for cultivating your own attitude and supporting others to improve theirs:

1. Invest your attention

2. Navigate by your values

3. Collaborate on your life story.

The goal of these strategies is to ensure that everyone - learners, teachers and everyone else - is supported in transcending mere survival in order to achieve thrival (the state of thriving). By clearly defining thrival, with reference to research in the fields of cognitive science and psychological studies, the author, Don Berg, has developed an innovative approach that redefines what it means to put the learner at the center of the educational process.

The three strategies reflect the integration of personal, group and societal levels of being. Ultimately, all you have to work with us your own life, therefore, these strategies are designed to be implemented personally, but with clear aim toward improving the whole of society in the process. A sustainable society is only possible when everyone thrives. Transforming our society for sustainability requires that individuals take responsibility for creating ways to thrive in the world as it is. Achieving thrival, by definition, will transform not only your own personal world, but will affect the world of others, as well. You can ultimately create a revolution toward sustainability through the necessary collaborations that will sustain your own thrival.
