People of a different spirit are rare, folks like Joshua and Caleb.
Moses sent 12 men to Canaan. They all saw the same sights but their perspective was different. 10 people saw themselves as grasshoppers before the Anakites while Caleb and Joshua saw the Anakites as their bread. Calculating the percentage gives 2/12*100% = 16.7%.
What made the difference? Taking God at His word. Caleb and Joshua did not just take the promise as mere information, they owned it as God’s personal message to them. This is why they were not dismayed when they saw the giant Anakites. They knew that the One with them and who promised to give them the land was greater. This act so pleased God that He personally testified about Caleb as His servant and a man of a different spirit.
Be smart. Be like Caleb and Joshua.
