How we see the world affects how we feel about ourselves and every aspect of our day-to-day existence. Our attitudes dictate the quality of our lives.
Life is all about choices and you choose how you react to situations. You choose how people will affect your mood. You choose to be in a good mood or bad mood. Its your choice how you live life.
Your attitude shows and people notice. It shows on your face, in the tone of your voice, in your choice of words, and in your body language.
Many events are beyond our control, but we have the power within us to choose our attitudes and behaviours. We can blame circumstances and others for our attitude. But the truth is, we decide our attitude at any given moment.
Having a good attitude is something that radiates from you when you have it. People want to work with you and be around someone who has a positive glow around them.
Put your best effort into whatever you do and focus on your dreams, stay positive in everything you do. As the saying goes..”Attitude is Everything”
Shifting Your Attitude In A Positive Direction…
Smile: Research has shown the smiling has both psychological and physiological effects. So, put a smile on your face and you’ll be on your way to a change in attitude!
Intention: Decide what attitude you want to have, and then set your intention to adopt that attitude.
Role Models: Find people who are getting the kinds of results you would like to be getting. Watch them carefully to see what kind of attitude they have and how they express that attitude. Copy them.
Surround Yourself With Positive People: Attitudes are contagious. Who you surround yourself with and spend time with is probably influencing your attitudes way more than you are consciously aware.
Fake It Till You Make It: If adopting a new attitude feels difficult or awkward, just fake it till you make it. It really works. Act as if you have that attitude. Walk like someone with that attitude. Talk like they would talk. Breathe like they would breathe. Make the decisions they would make, etc.
Reminders: Write the attitude you want to adopt on a post-it note and put it somewhere so that you’ll see it regularly.
“Life is too short to spend your precious time trying to convince a person who wants to live in gloom and doom otherwise. Give lifting that person your best shot, but don’t hang around long enough for his or her bad attitude to pull you down. Instead, surround yourself with optimistic people.” – Zig Ziglar
