Wake up & think positive
“Start the day with a good attitude or the right attitude, rather than the wrong one and the Odds are in favor of you having a good day;” Jason U
If you can start the day with a good attitude, the rest of your day is likely to unfold as a reflection of your own attitude. Another way of thinking about it is that you get from the day and from life, what you pour into them.
“Attitudes are nothing more than habits of thought and can be acquired. An action repeated becomes an attitude realized.” Paul Meier
A simple plan to help anyone adopt a good attitude or the right attitude:
“ Say the right words, read the right books, listen to the right tapes, be with the right people, do the right things and pray the right prayer.” John C. Maxwell
A lot of things are nothing more than a matter of thought or originate as thoughts that translate themselves into their own reality or become manifested in one more or another expressed as a feeling or ultimately an action.
The more a thought is repeated, the more dominant that it becomes and it is reflected more powerfully as a feeling or action. To like or dislike anyone, any place or anything is a thought. There may be some reason attached to the thought but if you can eliminate that reason, you can also eliminate the thought.
` I do not want to go to work today.’ Is a thought and there may be a reason or a variety of reasons attached to the thought but if you can somehow override those reasons, your path to work is clear, except of course maybe any traffic between you and getting to work.
One thought also has the power of overriding another and so a beautiful thought can overpower and or exile a depressing or negative thought. A powerful positive thought has the potency to magically transform a negative start or reality into something much more majestic. Anticipation rather than dread can transform something that you fear, into something that brings fulfilment. `I want to be at work today to help someone today’’ rather than I do not want to be at work today, changes the whole equation to the day.
That is the power of a simple positive thought. Imagine the power of acquiring the thought, making the thought a daily habit and an attitude that becomes realized.
Another way of looking at the power of a good attitude is to apply what I call the multiplication factor. Negativity subtracts from your good attitude and happiness. Positivity multiplies your good attitude and adds to your happiness.
Think of Jesus and how he multiplied bread to feed the multitude. He needed some bread to do it. Think of your bank account as a material example. There has to be some money in your bank account for it to gain interest. Think of how you feel when there is money in your account as opposed to when you have a series of overdrafts and or a negative amount in your bank account.
The more money there is in your bank account, the more comfortable you are likely to be .Think of your mind as your attitude bank and apply the same principle. The more beautiful thoughts that there in your mind, the more the power of attitude works for you and the better you feel.
If you can start the day with a good attitude, the rest of your day is likely to unfold as a reflection of your own attitude. If one day is good, it is a foundation to the next day and the next. Each good day adds up to a good week. Each good week adds up to a good month. each good month adds up to a good year and each good year amounts to a good life or a life well spent
If you have the right thoughts in your mind, you can also find ways to multiply your money and make a habit of multiplying your money. The same multiplication theory applies to having a good or great attitude. If you have the right attitude or a good attitude, then you can multiply it to such a magnitude, that any subtraction from it does not significantly impact the multiplication and manifestation that has already occurred.
The multiplication and magnification of the right attitude is much easier than the multiplication of your bank account, because attitude is a state of mind and within your control. It is easier because the thought originates with and from within you. You are the creator of the thought and you can make a master piece from any positive thought. You can transform a negative picture in your mind from any given scenario into a more beautiful picture and utilize your attitude to change actions and reactions.
Yes, it can be affected by external factors and is affected by external factors but you have to remind yourself that it is a thought that can be easily acquired by planting the thought in your mind, feeding the thought and allowing it to grow.
Plant beautiful thoughts in your mind and they will grow. Think beautiful thoughts and you will feel beautiful, even if you find yourself in the ugliest of environments. Think of a loved one, of your children, of someone or something that makes you happy and hold on to those thoughts as you journey through any storm. They will help promote the right attitude and get you through the storm. Think of the day ahead as a beautiful day, even if the weather sucks or the day ahead looks depressing and you will see the roses to the thorns rather than the thorns to the roses.
If you can do that and make positive attitude a habit, it becomes action repeated and attitude manifested. Here is the irony to such a habit. The habit allows you to become more creative and productive. The multiplication of the right attitude can also lead to the multiplication of your bank account, your wealth, your health and your wellbeing as a spiritual being having a human experience.
Have the right attitude, have a great attitude and have a great day.
We all have a purpose or a number of purposes. This purpose or the number of purposes is determined by you and or others. Your purpose defines you and gives you some meaning to life. The irony is that the purpose can be or is translated into a struggle and the struggle becomes the definition of life. Find your purpose and you find some meaning to life. Find fulfillment from your purpose and you find joy. Make it a struggle and you find conflict and misery.
There are some things that you just have to do. You have to breathe in order to live or to be alive thus breathing has a purpose and so breathing has meaning. It means that you are alive. You are a spiritual being having a human experience and a part of that experience requires you to eat . Unless you have a large trust fund in your name or to draw from, you need to provide for yourself and so providing for yourself is a purpose. If you have family, you also need to provide for them and that is a part of your purpose. This gives meaning to getting up in the morning and going to work. It is the means to an end.
There is purpose to a lot of things that we do in life but we tend to look more at what has to be done rather than, the purpose to these many things. To these things you may see the mundane to life rather than the bigger picture but look deeper for the purpose to what and why and you will see the bigger picture. You will see purpose and you will find some meaning. Waking up has its own purpose and its own meaning. Waking up invites you to a new day. It means that you are alive and can be creative.
To have no purpose is to have no meaning to life or to find no meaning to life. Magnify your purpose however mundane it may appear and you magnify the meaning of your life. The more fulfillment that you derive from your purpose, the greater the joy you shall also find.
Do what you do because you want to and not because you think that you have to. Attached to purpose is responsibility and it is this responsibility that can become a burden to anyone in any capacity. Being a parent is a purpose and has its own responsibilities. Being a good parent requires fulfilling the responsibilities attached to parenthood. Being an even better parent is fulfilling your parent and these responsibilities not because you have to but because you want to.
We use words like responsibility, obligation and commitment to bind ourselves to people to places, to things and to some of our purposes in life but the most important of all is free will. We are free to accept any purpose or to commit ourselves in any capacity to the responsibilities of that capacity and we are also free to reject purpose and responsibility, The choice is yours but the more you embrace your purpose and the less you struggle with your purpose of being, the better the journey through life.
Identify your purpose, embrace your purpose, love your purpose, breathe some life into your purpose and your purpose will breathe some life into you. Wake up with purpose to your life and some purpose to the day. You have those purposes that already exist and you have those purposes that you can create for yourself and the day ahead.
