“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way. ” ~Viktor E. Frankl
Your attitude is the environment you decide to carry with you during the day. It proclaims to the world what you think of yourself and indicates the sort of person you have made up your mind to be. Having a great attitude is deciding that you can do well at anything you make up your mind to do. However, if you understand what attitude really is, you’ll know how to bring the best of you to the surface every day……Your attitude forms every event in your life, whether you realise it or not.
Out of your attitude comes your enjoyment of life and gratitude for all your blessings…………Out of your attitude, also comes your disappointment and anger at how things have turned out………Out of attitude also comes the feeling that no accomplishment will be ever be good enough or that you are not good enough. Sad thing is, everyday your attitude is challenged by other people and by external factors. How will you react? Will you allow adversity to stop you from moving forward? Will you allow a negative person to ruin your day, or force you to give up on your dreams?
At certain junctures in our lives, we will encounter challenging circumstances or people. We can either regard our dilemmas with anger, bitterness or frustration. Or we can look deep within and find the source that is beyond all circumstances and then pick ourselves up, and move on with our lives knowing all things will work in our favour. If on any given day, negative drama surrounds you, hang on to your own positive attitude and don’t let other people to drag you down.
A positive attitude is not about displaying a phoney smile, a happy face and a perky disposition. It is simply a way of responding to life in a manner that allows us to accept the duality, the contradictions, the contrasts of our experiences.
