YOUR ATTITUDE IS YOUR CHOICE
Your attitude is your choice. We can blame circumstances for our attitude. We can blame the actions of others for our attitude. We can even blame the dog. But the truth is, we decide, we choose and we determine our attitude at any given moment.
The attitude that you have right now, at this very moment, is the one you have chosen to carry around. It is determined by your thoughts.
In this silly illustration about the woman, she could have had one lousy day after another watching her each hair disappear just as easily. She could have spent her days depressed. She could have spent her time being angry.
Instead, she looked for something to be positive about, even in the middle of a lousy situation. She chose to deal with her situation in a positive way, and as a result she had a great day. Even though this is a fictional story, the point is well made.
Think about it. When was the last time you had a lousy attitude and a great day? Do you think that a connection exists between attitude, thoughts and physical realities of the day you are having? Of course it does!
I am a strong believer that we are each responsible for protecting ourselves from negative energy. If you find it near you, and we all do, you need to distance yourself from it. Yet this is often difficult or impolite to do.
Choice #1- Evaluate your present attitude- Self-evaluation is not an easy task, yet it’s the most important route to self-discovery. Identify and write down problem feelings, and then problem behaviors. Identify problem thinking, because we are the sum of our thoughts. What controls your mind?
Right about now you might be saying to yourself, 'Getting motivated sounds great, but what if I don't know what I want to get motivated to do? What if I don't know what I really want?'
This is one of the most important questions you'll ever ask, but if you're like most people, the answers you need are difficult to find.
However, there is a solution. There is actually a proven method to tapping into your unique path to happiness and uncovering all of your goals, dreams, and true purpose in life.
