I have had a cold for a couple of days and I feel lousy. But I chose today to change my attitude.
Most of the time we don't have the ability to change events in our day. It might rain, snow, be cold or too hot. Our car might break down or we get stuck in traffic. A contract was not signed because someone changed their mind.
What we do have control over is our attitude. We have choice when it comes to attitude.
What would happen if we made a choice of having a positive attitude no matter what comes our way? Would it make a difference in our day? Would it make a difference to others?
In sports, there are many great players who mess up in a game. They miss a pass or a shot.
They have a choice: To let that mistake determine the rest of the game by dwelling on it, or, they can decide to learn from the mistake and apply a good attitude for the rest of the game.
We set goals for the year and break it down to what we will do each day to reach those goals.
But there are days we don't hit our mark. What do we do? In stead of getting down on ourselves, we can choose to get up in our attitude.
Now we can have a better attitude with the next client, our family our SOI. And that will make a difference for everyone.
What do you think would happen if we chose a better attitude?
