When it comes to the development and maintaining of a positive and winning attitude, my mother always stressed that you will have to work on your attitude every single day of your life. When was the last time you consciously worked on developing a positive and winning attitude? Remember – A great positive mental attitude just doesn’t happen. You have to work at it.
On that fretful day when we say we don’t care about winning – that will be the day we start believing that mediocrity is acceptable.
We Must Seek The Positive! We are constantly surrounded with what I call “trash”. Every day we are bombarded by negativity from the gossip of people we encounter daily, to the Non-Reality of the ever increasing “Reality TV Shows, and the endless tragedies on the news and in the newspapers. I challenge you to stop filling your mind with other people’s non-sense. The positive attitude that you are cultivating and nourishing should be protected; as it is the most valuable thing that you possess. From this day forward, I challenge you to be selective in your listening, and don’t let others pollute your mind with their negative garbage.
Get away from negative people in a flash – so that you can become the empowered exposures that you were intended to be……
Negative Thinking Keeps You From Succeeding In Life! Negative thinkers consistently deny their lives are in a mess. They want everyone to think that their lives are just fine when actually they are dying inside. (I wish I didn’t have a brother that fits in this category.) I choose to believe they truly want a better life, but in reality, they don’t believe they deserve the good things in life. Instead, they tend to find fault in, and gossip about other people because they aren’t happy with their own lives. Again – stay away from these negative minded people. Your mind is too valuable and you must protect you mind at all times.
Negative thinkers give up fast! They come up with all the lame excuses and or justifications why they can’t get themselves to positively take on the world. They don’t believe they have what it takes to win; even though they want you to think otherwise. I am certainly glad that my mother taught me to believe in myself; because when you don’t believe in yourself and you don’t have a clear picture of your future, you generally don’t have hope for yourself.
With A Positive and Winning Attitude – Live Your Life Free From Excuses! Don’t justify why you can’t do something, instead, figure out how you can do something productive. Oh The Power Of A Positive and Winning Attitude!! I challenge you to NEVER compromise your values. Believe in yourself and again, cleanse your mind of all negativity.
