One of the key elements to success and happiness is having a great attitude. As we embark on our Success-FULL journey we must remember to keep a positive attitude so that we can keep things in perspective. I think that Henry David Thoreau said it best, “It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what your see”. Like the old question goes, do you see the cup half empty or half full? It is all in your attitude and your perspective of the situation.
Attitude is the one thing all human beings have complete control of and yet many unknowingly choose a negative attitude. If we understood the power of our own attitude in our lives, most of us would change it immediately. How many times have you been told to change your attitude? That is a common order from most parents and teachers!
Attitude is created by your thoughts, feelings and actions. Your mind controls feelings and decides whether these feelings will be positive or negative through your thoughts. Your body then follows these thoughts through actions and behaviors. It sounds simplistic because it is.
Through our thoughts, we create an attitude. This attitude is expressed based on how we internalize ideas. Our mind and body move into a new vibration of conscious awareness known as feelings. These feelings are then displayed through actions and behaviors that produce the results in our lives.
Attitude [Thoughts + Feelings + Actions] = Results
Imagine feeding our minds with positive thoughts and flow through the process. We will end with positive results. Now imagine feeding our minds with negative thoughts and flow through the process. Makes sense, doesn’t it?
By changing our thoughts, we can change our attitude, which will ultimately change our results. Attitude is the creative cycle that allows us to feel a certain way and then take the necessary action to a specific result.
Start with the end in mind and make the decision that today is the day to change your attitude! Change your attitude and change your perspective it is all relevant as you continue to embark on your path to being Success-FULL!
