What is your attitude today? Your attitude is within your “circle of control”. You can choose it; that is powerful! Having a good attitude is very important and it is one of the things that enable you to develop to your full potential. When I was doing some reading this past week, I came across a quote by Charles Swindoll on attitude that I would like to share. Following are his comments:
“The longer I live the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude to me is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than success, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearance, gift, or skill. It will make or break a company…a church…a home, etc.
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude that we will embrace that day. We cannot change our past; the only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and that is our attitude.
I am convinced that life is ten percent of what happens to me and ninety percent how I react to it. And so it is with you, you are in charge of your attitude.” (Charles Swindoll)
When was the last time you reflected on your attitude? Have you done an “attitude check” recently? If your life and your experiences do not reflect what you desire them to be, look inward vs. outward. Taking time to understand how you are thinking, reacting, responding will make a difference in your life, your experiences and how you respond to your circumstances. It will also make a difference in how you are being experienced by those around you.
It is freeing to know that you have a choice. You can make each situation different by choosing your attitude. This change in frame of reference will make your life different. Begin affirming today, “I choose healthy, supportive and nourishing reactions to the experiences and circumstances in my life.” I am convinced that by doing this, you will experience a new, healthy, successful way of being 😊.
Have a GREAT day!
