Attitude is Everything
We all have a choice every day with the attitude we bring. Either you are part of the solution or part of the problem. The choice is yours!
Have you ever been around someone who was smarter than you, but had a terrible attitude toward life? Were they working at the top or the bottom of the corporate latter? In most cases, they are working at the bottom. The reason being is their attitude is perceived to be poor or negative and these people are difficult to work with.
Why is this? I feel many people are effected by the experiences in their lives where they have been really challenged or defeated. They have either struggled in the area of relationships, business, finances, or another area of life that has brought them down. As a result of this, people carry this negativity toward many aspects of life and find it hard to get over it.
If this is you, you don’t have to feel this way any longer! If you are able to focus on the now and set goals for tomorrow, your attitude can change over time. Your dreams can become a reality if you stop looking in the rear view mirror. It is something you will have to work on, but it can be done and you can do it. There have been times in my life where I have struggled and was in a rut with a bad attitude. It’s no wonder I couldn’t land any good jobs and struggled with long term relationships which resulted in my slight depression. I kept running on this emotional treadmill and felt I could never get off!
Then, finally things changed! I put my foot down and told myself for things to change, I have to change. I was no longer going to drown myself in misery and feel bad about what has happened to me. My focus changed to learning and growing from these seemingly negative experiences. That day changed my life and things started to fall into place over time.
As the light at the end of the tunnel neared, my attitude started to change. Once this transition took place, things started falling into place for me. Not only did I find the perfect company, but I found the woman of my dreams as well!
I am now happily in a Supervisor role with a Fortune 500 company managing a group of individuals who may be better qualified when it comes to education. I have a beautiful wife with two wonderful daughters who I love very much. The point I’m trying to make is that you don’t need to have a degree or to live in paradise, but you must have a great attitude and be someone who enjoys life, change, and people. You will attract others by your attitude.
From my experience in life, in order to change your latitude you must change your attitude and that means everything to me!
