5 ways to have a better attitude...NOW!

5 ways to have a better attitude...NOW!



Hello friend. Let me start by saying, we all won't have a 100% positive attitude 100% of the time. That's  okay though, we're ALL overcoming to become. In this article, I'm speaking to myself as much as I am to you. Thing is, we all know having a positive attitude can and will change our lives. If we all know it, why aren't we all doing it? 

Simple answer? Because it's extremely difficult.  

I won't argue with you there. With that said, I began looking for some small tweaks that could get us on the path to a better attitude, and ultimately a better life. I'd like to share them with you. 

1. Start your day by reading something positive

Every success coach, business coach, life coach, or any coach that cares about you will tell you to start your day by reading something positive. This isn't a bunch of bull, it works. Ever hear of "Garbage in, Garbage out?" This works in your mind as well. Feeding it positive will start your day in a positive mode, and it's likely to continue. You don't have to read 3 hours each morning, start with something small. Even if it's just one chapter, one devotion, one Proverb. Remember, everything big was once small.

2.Listen to more music

Ever get an instant feeling of euphoria when your favorite song comes on? Make that song come on more often. Play it whenever you're down. Play it when you're happy. Play it when you don't know what else to do! Just keep playing it! 


3.Have something you like..

In these days and times, it seems like everyone is on some type restriction. Whether it's delaying gratification or simply a diet, it's okay to have a little of something you like. Do whatever you have to do to keep your mind state positive. If a certain type of candy makes you happy, have a piece. If travelling makes you happy, take a weekend. Enjoy the journey..


4.Set Goals

It's been said "true happiness can only be achieved when accomplishing a goal." We all like to win. You're winning when you're on course towards your personal goals. Imagine how good it's going to feel when you get there? Guess what? The milestones feel good on the way too! There's nothing like knowing you're a little closer to your dreams. Basketball games wouldn't be very entertaining without goals, neither will your life. Put yours up. 


5. Reward your accomplishments

If you set a goal and accomplish it, enjoy yourself.....for the day! Then move on..

However, while you're enjoying yourself, REWARD YOURSELF! You deserve it! There's nothing wrong with a little reward! Dangle the carrot in front of your own face if you have to! If you don't treat you great, who will? 

I hope this helps. We'll get better. Let's get to work..

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
