“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.” ~ Winston Churchill
“The greatest day in your life and mine is when we take total responsibility for our attitudes. That’s the day we truly grow up.” ~ John C. Maxwell
“A great attitude does much more than turn on the lights in our world; it seems to magically connect us to all sorts of serendipitous opportunities that were somehow absent before we changed.” ~ Earl Nightingale
I know…it is quite difficult to have a good Attitude in the face of all that has been and is going on in our worlds and The World. When we look around, we get frustrated and sad and sometimes depressed and we may even feel some hopelessness…like how can we possibly come back from all of this in a positive way. And so…what difference does it make if we have a good attitude? Everyone else has a bad attitude and are cranky and mean…so why shouldn’t we and why should we care.
But…the thing is…we should care…deeply. Because all of the energy our attitudes create goes out streaming into the world and adds to what is already out there. And…it affects our own lives too. In order to change the attitude in the world, we need to have a good attitude in our own lives.
What we feel perpetuates. It draws like to itself. If we have a bad attitude, we will draw to us people and circumstances that align with that attitude. If we smile, and have a better attitude, it changes the grid and waves of energy around us, and we draw in people and circumstances that align with those waves. And who does not want to live a life in the waves of better feelings…a better attitude? And, it catches, like a spark to a string…and can ignite a pattern of love and positive energy that could reach many people, as well as ourselves.
So, if just for today, and one day at a time…let us see what we can change when we adopt a positive and loving attitude. No matter what is going on…the one thing we have complete command over that no one else does…is our own Attitude. If we feel the need to control something when everything else seems out of control…let that be our Attitude. It is the one personal, individual thing that no one else can control, change, or take away from us. So…make it the best Attitude it can be.
