The POWER of Attitude
FULL PODCAST EPISODE 048
Today is the seventh day in our master life lesson series and we’re talking about the power of attitude. Charles Swindoll puts it best, “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, education, money, circumstances, failures, successes, and what others think, say, or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company, church, or home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the 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% about how I react to it. And so it is with you, we are in charge of our attitudes.”
Being in charge of your attitude means being in charge of your focus. Attitude is a combination of how you use your body, mind, and emotions. The one thing no one can take from you is your attitude and spirit, so don’t let other people’s actions dictate how you live life. Understand that the attitude you wake up with every morning is your responsibility. You chose to be in the place you are currently in. Change your perspective on how you see things and it changes you attitude. You can get a boiling pot of water and put in a carrot, egg, or some coffee. One will soften, one will harden, and one will change its environment. All three were put in the same environment, but each reacted differently. It up to you how you choose to react, and rather than softening or hardening to match your environment, be the one that changes their circumstances and perspective.
To your continued evolution, live it up with POWER, PURPOSE & PASSION!
