DISPOSITION, noun [Latin]
- Temper or natural constitution of the mind; as an amiable or an irritable disposition
- Inclination; propensity; the temper or frame of mind, as directed to particular objects. We speak of the disposition of a person to undertake a particular work; the dispositions of men towards each other; a disposition friendly to any design.
If your natural way of looking at things and responding to things isn’t working for you, change it. Whatever time and effort is required is worth the result. Often we talk about making changes but never take the first step. You can’t get to step two if you don’t do step one.
The greatest part of our happiness depends on our dispositions, not our circumstances.
~ Martha Washington, first First Lady of the United States
