It’s known you can consciously choose your attitude on a daily basis, by resetting your mindset. But if you’re like most individuals, you most likely don’t pay much attention or even care. The majority will just allow the circumstances of the day, to dictate their attitude for them.
If we happen to get up on time in the morning, everyone and everything falls into place for that day, we’re in a good mood.
The car starts, it’s sunny outside, we don’t encounter heavy traffic and get to work on time. We then feel giddy.
Our coworkers don’t annoy as usual, and the boss doesn’t demand too much when we’re busy.
The workload for the day appears manageable, and lunch suddenly is just around the corner. The day is great.
As the day progresses, there’s no attitude adjustments that needs to be made on your behalf, as long as it runs this smoothly until the workday is finally over.
Yet Things Don’t Go As Planned
But then, we all know this isn’t always the case in life, there are roadblocks, nothing hardly goes as planned.
If something goes wrong, something will always invariably go wrong.
Situations in our lives hardly ever tend to adhere to our expectations. Accidents, delays, and unforeseen incidents always happen.
We know our spouses, kids, pets, friends, coworkers, and our bosses always don’t cooperate and can be difficult to behave or please.
Traffic clogs up at the most inopportune times, we sleep in, it rains cats and dogs when we don’t have our umbrella.
Then what happens is our attitude, our demeanor changes when things don’t go our way.
To Control Our Attitude
If we don’t choose to consciously make an effort to always project a positive attitude, we then find ourselves getting into a bad mood.
We run into the risk of developing a negative attitude, which we project towards others at random.
So how would our lives change for the better, if we could consistently chose to have a positive attitude each and every day.
To begin with, we would feel a lot better about ourselves, and be accepted by our peers more fluently.
Choose To Be Happy
A positive attitude allows us to feel a lot more motivated about pursuing our goals, since we would believe in the possibilities to make them a reality.
What we would be able to do is spend better quality time with our friends and families.
We would feel a lot stronger as well as empowered in our abilities, so we can accomplish anything we set our minds to.
We would have the confidence to be able to overcome any and all challenges we face.
If we could control our attitude, we could then perform these actions with ease since we have a strong belief in our skills and abilities.
We would be able to carry on and grow, without the fear of rejection or being betrayed.
We would then take the time to pause and enjoy the more precious things in life, without feeling pressured we need to do more, become more, to prove our worthiness.
Choosing To Be Positive
Wow, this sounds absolutely awesome, like a chapter taken out of a best selling self-help program.
Know it’s entirely possible to feel this way at all times. It’s entirely possible, but most likely not in the way which you’re imagining it.
This because once we choose to have a positive attitude, it doesn’t always mean our lives will magically transform into a smooth flowing art form.
Choosing to have a positive attitude is more of a process.
You just don’t choose to start one day, or do so every once in a while and then expect everything to be perfect beyond that point.
What we’ll experience are setbacks, delays, frustration, while experiencing fatigue and fear.
Our downfall then becomes we choose to fall victim by reacting to these negative experiences, as doing so is much easier.
Do we allow them to ruin or destroy our day, or choose to just pick ourselves up and look towards the future. What we have is the power to choose under these circumstances.
Overcoming The Drab
So you may be wondering what’s the point of a positive attitude, since it will most likely be defeated anyways.
This because we’re always experiencing negative circumstances in our lives.
Realize whatever it is we choose to focus on the most, is what we create in our lives.
So Just Choose To Have A Positive Attitude
By just choosing to have a positive attitude on a daily basis, we then attract more positive experiences in our lives. We then reduce the likelihood of attracting negative influences.
You may have noticed by now how each experience, will influence the quality of your next life experience, which causes a chain reaction.
Also, if one little thing happens to go wrong, it can usually throw everything off for the rest of the day.
In this context, it becomes easier to see how a positive attitude can be just as powerful.
Rather than allowing that one little negative thing to ruin your day, why not just shrug it off and continue if it never happened.
Then It Becomes A Habit
Over time, what this resiliency does is it begins to strengthen us, making us stronger, which then shows up in our demeanor and determination.
We then begin attracting people as well as experiences, which matches our positive attitude.
Our lives will then eventually begin transforming into a more happier, more fulfilling expression of joy and reward.
It’s All About A Simple Attitude Adjustment
It all begins with a shift in attitude. This is a process, your choice, start small and be easy on yourself when things don’t go your way.
Just focus on developing a mindful awareness of your attitude, at every moment of your daily life.
It may take a while to realize the full benefits of this mindset, but it’s time well spent.
Then before you know it, you’ll be one of those individuals who becomes the dictator of your own domain.
