Attitude and You

April 5, 2021

Don’t just have a mood – Have a positive attitude! 

My friends, a positive attitude won’t let you do everything, but it will let you do everything better than a negative attitude will. In fact, a positive attitude will let you use your abilities, and in life, isn’t that all you really need? So, I repeat – Don’t just have a mood – Have a positive attitude.

As you continue to move through and deal with the current pandemic, I personally challenge you to do your best, even in the light of all the negative news, business closings, and layoffs, to develop and maintain a positive mental attitude. I’m reminded of something my mother would always said to me, “It is always best to look on the bright side of things, and try to see the good in things and people.”

There is nothing more powerful than your attitude. Your attitude dictates your response to the present and in many ways, determines the quality of your future. Remember this: You are your attitude and your attitude is you. If you do not control your attitude, your attitude will control you.

I would also submit to you that it is your attitude that designs your destiny. It determines your success or failure in any venture in life. Just think – More opportunities have been lost, withheld, and forfeited due to negative attitudes than from any other cause. Wow!! So again, I say to you, even in this time of uncertainty, “Don’t just have a mood – Have a positive attitude”; and be about the business of you.

As I close this blog, let me just say again, attitude, attitude, attitude. It is not determined by circumstances, such as the current pandemic, but by how you respond to circumstances. Think of it this way – There will always be stimulus, such as the current pandemic, in your life. That stimulus will cause you to respond and in the middle between stimulus and response is your power to choose; positively or negatively. I challenge you to choose positivity, so that you Won’t just have a mood – But have a positive attitude; about you and life itself.
