ATTITUDE

 

ATTITUDE
( by: Dr. Charles Swindoll )
 
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life.
 
Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home.
 
The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude..
 
I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you...
 
We are all in complete control of just one thing - our ATTITUDE.
 
(Volume On)


Attitude - It has absolutely "everything" to do with your job / your career / business / profession - your future. It has everything to do with - attracting wealth - achieving abundance - succeeding in life.

Challenges - But it is not easy to always be optimistic and positive. Life can be difficult, and in tough economic times, it's not just your "finances" that can suffer - your "relationships" can be strained - your "spirituality" may be weak - your "health" can be stressed. Or "bad habits" can return, and "negative thoughts" can take over.

Success Mindset - Many people have found that, when they tune in to their 'internal dialogue', those negative thoughts ((“I could never do that” and -- “What if I fail?”)).  This "little voice" inside creates self-limiting beliefs that can seriously impact your behavior -vs- that of being blessed with a "possibility thinking" mindest, for reaching your FULL potential. If this describes YOU - the 'stress' associated with that "negative" internal dialogue, in turn, affects every single aspect of your life. But the beautiful thing is - re-shaping your mindset IS totally possible for you (for ALL of us) - and it is highly desirable.

Positive Attitude - This helps to cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid worry, fear and negative thinking. If you adopt it as a way of life, it will bring constructive changes into your life, and makes them happier, brighter and more successful. With a positive attitude you see the bright side of life, become optimistic and expect the best to happen. It is certainly a state of mind that is well worth developing and strengthening.

Positive Thinking - It leads to happiness and success, and can change your whole life. 'Stinkin Thinkin' drains energy, vision and and creativity from you. Bit if you change your attitude to look at the "brighter" side of life, your daily living becomes filled with light. This light affects not only you, and the way you look at the world - but also your whole environment, and the people around you. If it is strong enough, it becomes contagious.

Here's the thing - the seeds of greatness are in ALL of us. YOU are a well designed, well crafted, unmatched, unequalled, first-class, unique, highly significant individual - whose abilities, gifts, talents and life, were created to bring "positive impact and change" into this world. YOU were created to release your 'own' greatness - and out of that flow of greatness, life success emerges! All you need to do is RE-discover it! :>)

Bottom Line

Our success, or lack thereof, is MENTAL - it rests completely "between our ears".

If our mind isn't "set" for success then working harder, getting a different job, or starting a new business / practice will not make a bit of difference. 

---- 3-Dimensional - The great Bob Proctor teaches that - our Behavior - our Belief System - our Results - they must all be "in strict alignment" with each other.  We are "3-dimensional" human beings - where our Thoughts - our Feelings - our Actions - they must all be "in absolute harmony". Otherwise, we will never really see the RESULTS we want in life (whether it's better family relationships, more financial success, deeper spiritual insight, a more loving marriage, greater health - whatever).
 
---- Habit - Also, we are "creatures of HABIT" - we need constant REINFORCEMENT of our goals - we need continual "REPITITION of information" pouring into our conscious ((and "sub-conscious")) mind - in order for it to become habitual - in order for us to move forward, so that we ACHIEVE our dreams.
 
---- Self Talk - One of the "best" ways to help accomplish such CHANGE, according to Proctor) is to "repeat" - over and over - good messages to ourselves, such as 
 
"I am SO happy and greatful now that money comes to me in increasing quantities - through multiple sources - on a continual basis". 
 
---- Repitition - According to Proctor, such positive messages should be repeated "1000 times per day" - for at least "90-days" - before they will truly resonate with us - before they will capture our attention - before they will become our belief system - before they will "transform" our behavior - before they will ((finally)) give us the kind of RESULTS we have prayed for.
