You might have heard of this piece of junk about ‘attitude’ for many times, now a real scientist is showing you the secret behind this.

First of all, it is like this:

A small truth to make our Life 100% successful.. ……..

If A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
Is equal to 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24
25 26

Then H+A+R+D+W+O+ R+K = 8+1+18+4+23+ 15+18+11 = 98%

K+N+O+W+L+E+ D+G+E = 11+14+15+23+ 12+5+4+7+ 5 = 96%

L+O+V+E=12+15+ 22+5=54%

L+U+C+K = 12+21+3+11 = 47%

(None of them makes 100%)
………… ……… ……… .
Then what makes 100%
Is it Money? ….. No!!!!!

Every problem has a solution, only if we perhaps change our “ATTITUDE”.
It is OUR ATTITUDE towards Life and Work that makes
OUR Life 100% Successful..

A+T+T+I+T+U+ D+E = 1+20+20+9+20+ 21+4+5 = 100%

Well, it might be true. But, is ‘attitude’ the only word which can make 100%? Let’s have a look.

What you need is python and a list of English words. I have done some google search and found this nice site of a list of 109582 English words: http://www-01.sil.org/linguistics/wordlists/english/ .

Open this list with python, and type in this piece of code:

print ‘,’.join([x.strip() for x in words_f.readlines() if sum([ord(i)-96 for i in x.strip()])==100])

We can easily get 1297 English words which can make 100%. Beside ‘attitude’, we also have, for example, :

alienation,inefficient,infernos……

This a scientist’s ‘attitude’: never trust 100%. We have something in the life much more important than just 100%, just like ‘love’=54%.
