Choosing a positive attitude is a process. We don’t just choose it once and expect everything to be perfect from that moment on. We will still experience setbacks, delays, accidents, frustrations, arguments, fatigue, and fear.
To reiterate, it is our choice
The secret is how we choose to react to these experiences. Do we want to let them ruin our day? Do we choose to pick ourselves up and look hopefully to the future again? We do have the power to choose.
You may be asking what the point of a positive attitude is. If we’ll still experience negative circumstances, why bother with choosing a positive attitude?
Ah, that’s the true beauty of the creative process. What we choose to focus on the most, we create in our lives.
By choosing a positive attitude each day, we are actually attracting more positive experiences. Thus, reducing the likelihood of negative experiences.
You may have noticed that each experience often determines the quality of the next experience. This almost always causing a chain reaction in our lives. If one little thing goes wrong, it can throw off our plans for the rest of the day.
In this context, it’s easy to see how a positive attitude would be powerful. Rather than allowing one little thing to ruin our day, we would be able to shrug it off and continue on without a hitch.
Over time, this resiliency begins to strengthen and empower us, which will show through in our demeanor. We begin attracting people and experiences that more closely match our attitude.
Before we know it, out lives eventually transform into more positive, fulfilling expressions of joy.
And it all begins with a little thing called attitude!
Again, this is a process, so go easy on yourself if you’re trying to adopt a more positive attitude. Simply focus on developing a stronger awareness of your attitude moment to moment in your daily experiences.
Begin choosing a more positive one more often. It takes time to realize the full benefits of this type of mindset, but it is time well-spent.
Before you know it, you’ll be one of those people you used to admire for their tenacity and strength. Your life will transform in amazing ways.
