In a way, that statement, your attitude affects your life, can be a little intimating. No one wants a bad life. We all want to be happy, joyful and successful (however it is that we each measure success). When we want to change our behavior, we need to first change our attitude. I’m pretty sure that everyone has heard all about an “attitude of gratitude”, and “thinking good thoughts”. Yes, those are clichés, however, as with many clichés there is some truth to them. If someone were to get up in the morning and think to themselves, I’m going to have a horrible, terrible no good day today. We would think that they were crazy. Who in the world would do that to themselves? See, you do believe in attitude affecting behavior and change.
So, today why not try something new. Get up and think I’m going to have a great day. Nothing is going to put me in a bad mood. Whatever happens, I’ll deal with it and move on. I’m going to try this, since I need an attitude adjustment – just like many other people. Let’s give it a go and see if it works!
