ATTITUDE IS VASTLY IMPORTANT because it presents your image to the world and is the driving force behind behavior. Your attitude influences your world and everything you do in it. It defines the energy you send out and, in turn, takes shape and color in your circumstances. If you have a positive attitude, you are more welcoming and people are drawn to you. A positive attitude opens you to the flow of life. If you are depressed, angry, and unhappy, no one wants to be around you. You literally push people and opportunities away.
The wonderful thing is that you have the freedom to choose which attitude you want to adopt. There is no perfect way; each way is unique to each individual. Knowing that you can choose how to react is especially important when unexpected problems occur. Remind yourself of techniques to keep a positive attitude. In doing so, you are guaranteed to have a happier life.
By simply changing your personal self-dialogue you can bring positive things to your life. Here are the three statements that shape positive self-dialogue:
- I am – is a statement of who you are.
- I can – is a statement of your potential.
- I will – is a statement of positive change in your life.
I AM statements are positive affirmations of a real state of being that exists in you.
- I am competent.
- I am patient.
- I am forgiving.
I CAN statements are positive affirmations of your ability to accomplish goals.
- I can lose weight.
- I can let go of guilt.
- I can handle my children.
I WILL statements are positive affirmations of a change you want to achieve.
- I will like myself better each day.
- I will give others responsibility for their lives today.
- I will feel good things about myself today.
To attract positive, joyful, and prosperous situations to you, you must be that way yourself. If you have an open, loving, positive attitude, anything burdensome in life can be lightened. Therefore, it is important to be aware of your mood. It is created by your thoughts. Every day you have a choice of how you will behave, the mood you will give out to the world, and how you want people to know you.
So if you want something in your life, first you must think of it, put your intention behind it, and keep your focus on it. It is almost like baking a cake. The thought is in the oven and you have to keep it baking with belief. You have to see your thought manifesting and becoming real.
Never forget you are a child of God. Follow your heart and be true to yourself. Never live the life of another. You have to create your own road. You have a responsibility to be the best you can possibly be, so keep your mind and heart open to the higher aspects of your being. And you will harness the power to have a loving and fulfilling life with attitude!
