Attitude is the master

Attitude is everything in life. If you want to be successful, change your attitude. Your attitude is what decides your next move in life. If you have a bad attitude, if you see life through a negative lens, if you see problems instead of opportunities, if you think you know everything, if you think you don’t have to learn anything anymore, if you don’t do your job well, if you don’t want to help people succeed, but yourself, you need to change your attitude.

Your attitude is everything. Whether you will make in life or not, it depends on how you approach life’s circumstances. Thomas Jefferson said, “Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goals; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude.” People want to work with someone with a positive attitude. People want to be around someone with a positive attitude. When you have a positive attitude, your presence will make people comfortable. Your presence will relieve them of their problems. People want to be around someone who will make them special, who will make them comfortable, who will make them laugh, who will make them feel better. People don’t care how much you know, people don’t care how attractive you are, if you cannot make them feel better about themselves, you have no chance of winning them over to your camp. Joe Osteen said, “Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you are going to live your life.”

“Your attitude is everything.”

If you want to change your attitude, start by taking a baby step. Change your mindset. When you are confronted with problems, instead of blaming other people, take a positive look at it, and ask yourself, “why did it happen?” Check what you can do to fix it. If you cannot fix it, don’t cry, don’t worry, relax and look for someone you trust who can help you out. Don’t try to do it yourself if you cannot.

Treat people with respect. Don’t be a bully, be a healer. Don’t focus on obstacles, focus on possibilities. When you are working with people, don’t criticize them when they make mistakes. Let them know where they went wrong, what they could have done to prevent it, and how to handle it next time.

When people focus on what cannot be done, you MUST focus on what can be done. When people focus on negative things, you MUST focus on positive things. Always see light where there is no light. Wherever you go, take light with you, take a smile with you, take positive news with you, and take health with you. If you continue to do that, you are a person with a positive attitude.

Why is it difficult to stay positive

When you think positively about things, when you think positively about challenging situations, you are of to a good start in life. You need to think in positive ways if you are to breakthrough in life. Positive thinking is the medicine for the soul. When your soul is healthy, you are healthy.

The question now is, “why is it difficult to stay positive?”

“Positive thinking is the medicine for the soul. When your soul is healthy, you are healthy.”

To stay positive, to see opportunities where others see problems starts in your mind. It comes from how you view the world. The people you have been hanging out with. If you hang out with negative people, people who see only negative things, you will start to think and act like them. On the other hand, if you hang out with positive people, you will start to think and act like them.

People are not positive in their lives because they focus on negative things, instead of focusing on positive things. They focus on what is wrong in their lives. They focus on what is not working for them. They see darkness where others see light. They road block where others see opportunity. They see impossible where others see possible. They think in “Can’t” ways instead of thinking in “can” ways. They think others are better than them. They believe others have no problems.

People who are positive maintain a positive mindset. They think and act in positive ways. They believe that nothing cannot be done if you are committed to getting it done. They see problems as opportunity. They work hard to improve on what is not working for them, and appreciate what is working for them.

No one is problem free. We have all experienced terrible things in our lives. If you want to maintain a positive state of mind, do the following things everyday: focus on what is working for you. Think positively about things, remove negative or self-defeating thoughts from your mind. Be grateful for what you have, and keep working to improve on your weaknesses. No one is better than you. No one is like you.

It takes time to change your mindset from negative to positive state of mind. But if you keep doing it every day, for the rest of your life, you will be a positive person. Just do it! Remember what Wade Boggs said about a positive attitude. He said, “A positive attitude causes a chain reactions of positive thoughts, events, and outcomes. It is a catalyst and it sparks extraordinary results.” It allows you to do more things than people thinking in negative ways.

Keep thinking in positive ways!
