Why is having the right attitude important?
I am sure you will agree with me about the importance of having the right attitude in life. I personally believe that your attitude is everything, and it determines to a very large extent the outcome of your life. We may not have control over the events and circumstances of our lives, but we have complete control over how we choose to either allow or not, the events of life affect our outlook and attitude.
Having a positive attitude has an effect on our outlook, and how we perceive and interpret life. Thinking about the classic analogy of either seeing a glass as half full or half empty, we note that it is possible for two people to interpret the exact same thing in different ways.
Attitude = How you view the world.
I see attitude as the glass through which we view, assess and interact with the world. Having the right attitude is like wearing clean and clear glasses with accurate prescription lenses. You are able to clearly see the things around you, the signs, people, where you are going, etc. And because of that clarity, you are able to make better judgements and decisions based on accurate facts.
I am a firm believer in giving life all you’ve got. We only live once, and if done right, once is enough. Having the right attitude helps boost our energy and resolve to live our best life. Having a negative attitude saps the life out of us and the people around us. It affects our interactions and what we pass on to those we have influence over.
We all have a choice. We can choose to see the glass as half-full and feed our hope and motivation, or we can choose to see the glass a half empty and feed a sense of defeat and self-pity.
