Is Your Attitude Helping or Hurting You
Your attitude can either help you or hurt you. Attitude is the one thing all human beings have complete control of and yet many unknowingly choose a negative attitude. Amazingly enough we often choose to dismiss the fact that we can have complete control of our attitude. Is your attitude helping or hurting you?
If we understood the power of our own attitude in our lives, most of us would change it immediately. How many times have you been told to change your attitude? That is a common order from most parents, teachers, and authority figures!
A few months ago we discussed this topic and asked a very similar question: Is your attitude moving you forward or backward. To read that blog click here.
Attitude is created by your thoughts, feelings and actions. Your mind controls feelings and decides whether these feelings will be positive or negative through your thoughts. Your body then follows these thoughts through actions and behaviors. It sounds simplistic because it is. Simplicity certainly does not nullify fact.
Thoughts Create Attitude
Through our thoughts, we create an attitude. So what type of attitude are your thoughts creating? This attitude is expressed based on how we internalize ideas. Our mind and body move into a new frequency or vibration of conscious awareness known as feelings. These feelings are then displayed through actions and behaviors that produce the results in our lives.
Attitude [Thoughts + Feelings + Actions] = Results
Recently as I was preparing for the As A Man Thinketh mastermind group I came across this quote from James Allen: “A man’s mind may be likened to a garden, which may be intelligently cultivated or allowed to run wild; but whether cultivated or neglected, it must, and will bring forth.”
Imagine feeding our minds with positive thoughts which flow through the process. We will end with positive results. Now imagine feeding our minds with negative thoughts which flow through the process. Of course the results will be negative. Makes sense, doesn’t it?
We all know negative people who drain us. This constant flow of negativity eventually leads to negative feelings and eventually avoidance of the person. I certainly do not want to feed my mind with negative thoughts.
Changing Our Thoughts
By changing our thoughts, we can change our attitude, which will ultimately change our results. Attitude is the creative cycle that allows us to feel a certain way and then take the necessary action to a specific result.
So what should you do? If your attitude is hurting you or moving you in the wrong direction; start with the end in mind and make the decision that today is the day to change your attitude! We have a new mastermind that can help you. For additional information click here.
