“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”

-Henry Ford


Attitude

It is really amazing how much mindset and attitude can predict success, regardless of ability.  The grumblers usually remain grumbling and don’t go anywhere.  The one’s with positive attitudes are the ones who move.

Attitude is a choice.  Even if you’ve received more than your fair share of bad times, it is still up to you what your attitude will be when you get up, when you go out into the world.

One way I have found to change my attitude is through gratitude, for the small things, for the big things, for all things really.  Another way is listening or watching uplifting media, podcasts, or music.

And once you are out in the world, surround yourself with the positive people, not the grumblers.  The grumblers will only bring you down.  If that is not possible, plug your ear buds in and listen to something positive!  Feel good or feel crappy, you always have a choice.

Have a great Friday!

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.

It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.”

-Melody Beattie

Today’s quote is a good reminder for me about the effectiveness of gratitude in my life.  When I am feeling down, just the simple act of recognizing something, anything, I am grateful for can begin to turn my attitude around.

Sometimes, when I am very feeling very low, it is hard to see things to be grateful for, but this is just a fallacy in my thinking, a symptom of being down.

There are an infinite amount of things to be grateful for, such as eyes to see and ears to hear, hands to hold, and arms to hug.  And that’s just the tippy tip of the iceberg.  Once I get going, it can become hard to stop!

Before I know it I am not feeling down or sorry for myself anymore and happy again!

Have a great Thursday!
