So what IS going great for you today? I am sure that you are completing the tasks you set out to achieve, and look at how you are smiling now just thinking about how great it feels. As you contemplate all the relationships you have in your life, from friendships to family members, a warm feeling of gratitude bubbles up inside you. It truly is wonderful when everything in life is moving along smoothly and almost effortlessly.
We have been doing some more studying about how our mind works so we can experience greater joy and success in our daily life. Attitude really plays a big part, but then just what is Attitude? When we examine it more carefully it becomes clear that Attitude is made up of the Thoughts we think, the Feelings we then feel, and the Actions that follow.
When you read the first paragraph above could you relate to it, and how did it make you feel? Did you smile and think in your mind, YES!! Maybe you felt pumped to get more accomplished and make this day even better. Then I guess you would have a great and positive Attitude!
What if you did not relate to it? You may have frowned instead of smiling and a mix of frustration and overwhelm may have showed up. Did you really feel the enthusiasm to make it a better day? Perhaps not and perhaps you have a bad Attitude right now. You know, you can make it a better day. You have the power.
As the quote states, ‘when you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”.
Take time to shift your view of your not so perfect day. If there are things not good happening, there has to be something somewhere in your day that is good. I know it’s there, you may have to look hard at first to see the greatness of your day, but the more you search for what is going great the chances are… you will continue to find more and more great things.
A simple shift in thinking changes the entire course of your day. An Attitude of Gratitude makes all the difference.
Can this quote also be inspiring if you already have a good Attitude? Well let’s think about it. Many things are already going great in your day, you feel satisfied and enthusiastic about it. Could you do more, or make what is going great even greater? Look at what you are doing from a new perspective and see if you could offer more value to others, or find a more efficient way of achieving what you are doing, or how you could add to your relationships to create more precious memories or ties with those you love or associate with. Maybe your great day is now becoming even better.
