In Path To Liberty, Thomas Willhite wrote that “Attitude is the key to all behavior…the key to action.”
Attitude is the thing you have total control over in your life. You decide. You choose. You can wake up each day and decide what attitude you will take into each moment you are faced with. You can even decide moment-by-moment what attitude you will bring to each circumstance. Do you know that your attitude at the beginning of a task will affect its outcome more than anything else? The bottom line is that you are either the master or the victim of your attitude. The choice is up to you. Relish the power and joy of that choice, every time you make it.
Here are a couple of quick tips to improve your attitude starting right now:
1. Treat every person you meet, without a single exception, as the most important person on earth. You will find that they will begin treating you the same way. Commit to this for one week and see how it changes not only your own attitude, but that of everyone around you.
2. List two problems that you’re presently experiencing. Next to each of these problems write down your current reactions to them. Are they negative? Commit to discovering at least three possible benefits from each problem. Now attack the problem with your eyes on the benefits, not the barriers.
