You can have the CHOICE to determine what attitude you want to have toward a thought, a circumstance, you LIFE.
LIFE is all about 10% WHAT happens to us and 90% HOW we respond to it. Attitude is that string that keeps us going or cripples our process.
Many times we focus on the misfortunes in our life, rather that concentrating on what we have at hand and make the best out of it.
The greatest waste of energy = The energy wasted fighting the INEVITABLE!
4 Things to do with POSITIVE ATTITUDE
1) Positive attitudes turns OBSTACLES into OPPORTUNITIES
Q: What is the difference between an Obstacle and an Opportunity?
A: Our Attitude towards it.
“Every opportunity has difficulty; every difficulty has opportunity”
2) Positive attitude is CONTAGIOUS
When one in the team possess a positive attitude, the energy spreads throughout the team. It only takes one to start.
3) Positive attitude doesn’t allow the situation to determine one’s reaction
The more we lament and complain about why we are doing this or why is that happening to us and not others, the more negative energy we accumulate. It will not do us any good nor the people around us. What’s worse is, it WILL NOT improve the situation.
On the other hand, the more we take things graciously and do as we are told, the more we look at it positively and thus take it as a chance to help ourselves to learn and grow. We get the things done and we feel happy.
ABILITY is what we are capable of doing.
MOTIVATION determines what we do.
POSITIVE ATTITUDE determines how well we do.
4) Positive Attitude trusts in all situation
Blame never affirms, it assaults
Blame never restores, it wounds
Blame never solves, it complicates
Blame never unites, it separates
Blame never smiles, it frowns
Blame never forgives, it rejects
Blame never forgets, it remembers
Blame never builds, it destroys
BLAME = Aggressive way of negative energy
SELF-PITY = Passive way of negative energy
When we are facing self-pity, have faith instead and give our problems to the Higher Power.
All things can happen, is because of Faith, is because we have positive attitude. It is because we know that what we do, hence we are always optimistic.
Life is short. It is not worth to be bogged down with unnecessary worries and fears. In all we do and all that that happen to us, there is a reason behind it. We are loved and there are reasons to everything in life we go through.
So, what is your attitude towards your circumstance, your life?
