Maintaining a Positive Attitude
This is a subject that people talk about a lot. The reality of it, is that if you are someone like me who was raised in a good family with traditional morals and values, but didn’t live in a positive environment there was little room, if any, for positive thinking. If you had to survive during your childhood or your teenage years all you had was peer pressure, stress and fear. The word positivity was not part of your vocabulary. If you relate to any of the above scenarios your life as an adult most likely will continue to be the same way… Only with bigger issues.
A positive attitude is something that you must create for yourself. You can do this by creating a daily practice that works for you! Another thing you have to take into consideration is that we are wired differently. So what may work for me might not work for you or your schedule. We can do the same things in a different way as long as we are doing the work. The bottom line is that we all have to start somewhere. You must be consistent in any practice you decide to use to help you elevate your thoughts and your life in a more positive way.
The thing is that we want quick results without putting in the work. My friend, you must put in the time and effort before you get the desired results. For example: people who want to become bodybuilders have to spend a lot of time in the gym on a regular basis not once in a while. They also have to eat certain foods and avoid others, while staying consistent at all times. They work for their desired result. We, my dear friends, have to work twice as hard to change our minds and thoughts. When you have been in a negative pattern for years it takes time, patience, persistence and consistency for change to occur. One thing that’s for sure is that change will occur if you work at it.
Please don’t get discouraged. Just think, if I can do it, you can too! Believe me when I tell you! For years all I did was go around in the cycle of negative thinking expecting positive results…really? I think that’s funny now and the fact that I’m writing this it’s even funnier. Who knew I would ever be free from the negative thinking? That’s a miracle all by itself.
Here is the thing…You can’t expect a positive outcome with a negative attitude. A negative attitude will give you a negative result. You do the math! It’s all possible my friend. You get whatever you think and believe in your heart. Give yourself a chance! You are worth it!! It’s never too late to start fresh.
