Work On Your Attitude

coffee

 

You know, it’s been said that there are no bad days, only bad attitudes.. If you really think about it, it is very true.  A day is neither good or bad.  The attitude you have towards what happens in any given day is what determines whether you think it’s been a good day or a bad day.  Generate a better attitude for yourself and your day can only get better.  Now that doesn’t mean bad or annoying things won’t happen, it just means that you’ll be able to handle them better and not get so stressed out.

Decide what’s important to you and what’s worth letting your mood or your attitude get out of control.  For example, if someone cuts in front of you at checkout, is that really worth getting upset over?  Just because that person is rude and insensitive doesn’t mean that you need to get bent out of shape.  Just smile and be grateful that you’re not like that person.

See, when you get angry and react over events like these, you give control of yourself over the the offending person.  Most of the times, these people simply aren’t worth you losing control.  You, and only you, get to decide to be a better person than that.  It really all starts with you attitude ;-)

    Hi Miss. Helene, nice to meet you. I want to thank you for your advice. there are no bad days, only bad habits. This is not just a theory but I believe its truth. I might also tend to fail because of my bad habits. Thank you very much for reminding me

      Hi Erwin, thank you for your comment.. I believe that we all have bad habits we just have to keep reminding ourselves of that fact and work on our attitude ;)

    Thanks Helene for sharing such a warm post. We all need to work on our attitude at some point of time. Nothing can be taken for granted. I agree that the days are not bad, what is bad is our attitude towards a particular day, an incident or a person. We all need to look beyond perfection to make things look perfect.

    Hey Helene

    I completely agree no day is good or bad, its just the attitude we have towards it makes it good or bad. We get angry over small things that are avoidable and then we blame that we had a rough time. The key is to control our temper and give only the required attention to these things.

    Truly inspiring post for all those, including myself who blame it all on everything but our own bad habits. Helene has put it down in a very catchy manner that keeps readers’ interest all the way. Great and thanks for the share.
