I must confess that I get a bad attitude occasionally. I get in one of those moods and my vision gets impaired. Everything I see is bad. I find fault in people and projects. I need an attitude adjustment.
What percentage of your day from this past week was consumed by a negative attitude versus a positive, proactive and optimistic attitude? Take a minute right now and reflect on that question. Go ahead, close your eyes, shut yourself off to the world and really ponder over that question and your answer.
Is your attitude positive enough? Or are you consumed with negativity? Do you focus on the abundance of blessings God has given you? Such as air, water, food, your health, your family, etc… or are you choosing to focus on that which you feel you are missing? Do you have a long list of things that you want or feel you deserve?
I love the quote by Patricia Neal, “A strong positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug!” Isn’t that true? Just the power of a positive attitude will do wonders.
Irving Berlin said, “Life is 10% what you make it and 90% how you take it.” It really does all come down to attitude.
Do you realize that attitude is the key?
· Attitude affects our outlook – how we see things, how we look at things.
· Attitude affects our outcome. How things turn out is based on what kind of attitude we had during the process.
· Attitude affects our altitude – how high and how far you will go in life.
The question today is, do you need an attitude adjustment?
“There is little difference in people but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.”
W. Clement Stone
