ATTITUDE = 100%
We all know that having a positive attitude is extremely important. But, did you know that attitude LITERALLY = 100? If you assign numerical values to each letter based on their place in the alphabet you come up with this:
A T T I T U D E — 1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100. Check the math if you doubt this equation.
If attitude is so important, then why do we lose it? Why do we allow ourselves to “wake up on the wrong side o the bed” or to “have a bad day” or to “play the victim?” It just doesn’t make sense. Now, having and maintaining a positive attitude isn’t always as “easy” as it sounds. So, we did a little research to find some tips to help improve your attitude and learn to not “lose it.”
1. Remember, YOU ARE IN CONTROL.
This is probably the most important bit of coaching that anyone can receive about improving their attitude. You, and only you, are in control of your attitude. with proper mental preparation and training, you are able to change your attitude, permanently. Start adopting the mindset that, “Life isn’t about what happens to you, it’s about how you handle it.”
2. Realize just HOW IMPORTANT attitude really is.
I’m sure anyone reading this can think of that one friend they have with the “bad attitude.” The person who has a pattern of self inflicted and self imposed negative rules that make their life far harder than it really needs to be. Bad attitudes can derail everything in your life, your relationships, and your future. The first step is realizing it. If you don’t think there is a problem, you can’t change it. So, the first step is to be honest with yourself and be cognitive to your reactions and thoughts about certain things. If you see a negative trend, start training your mind to think of things differently. You can miss out on career opportunities, love, and happiness because you weren’t in the right frame of mind.
3. Don’t give in.
Never let go of your dreams and goals because you doubt yourself. They’re your dreams and goals for a reason. Start believing that you DESERVE to have everything you want. You’re smart and talented enough to achieve your goals. Don’t let doubt and negativity fill your head. There are always going to be roadblocks, problems, and fear. Don’t let them consume you. Focus on the solutions rather than the problems. Think about yourself as if you’re trying to swim across the English Channel. You will get tired, you might even start to sink a little, but you always find a way to kick yourself back up to the top, float a little bit and re-evaluate your plan, take a big gulp of air, and finish your journey.
4. Reflect, Learn, Repeat.
Sounds easy, right? Whenever life throws you a curveball, remember these steps. Assess and reflect your situation, find something positive to take away from it, and move on. Learn from your past problems and make changes to prevent them from reoccurring in the future. If you don’t reflect and learn, you’ll walk away from that situation feeling discouraged and complaining instead of dealing with it and taking control of your life through positive actions and changes.
5. Do Not Fear.
Be fearless in your quest for a better attitude and don’t settle for anything less than perfection. This bold outlook will keep you heading in the right direction when trouble surfaces. Don’t let fear dictate your actions, instead charge ahead and don’t be afraid to be bold. If you want to change your attitude, then you’re looking for change in your life. Assert yourself and take steps forward to help you reach greatness. Negativity will zap your productivity and energy. All it does is hinder you from becoming the best version of yourself.
6. Believe in YOU.
Don’t let a bad attitude turn into self-doubt. When you have trouble believing in yourself, it’s going to be extremely difficult to change your attitude. Be your own biggest fan. Every morning, after you’ve brushed your teeth and are looking at yourself in the mirror. Tell yourself that you’re awesome, give yourself a high-five. BE YOUR OWN BIGGEST FAN. How you feel about yourself changes the way you feel about others, which changes the way they feel about you. When others believe in you, it’s easier to put a positive spin on any obstacle that may occur.
7. Slow Down.
If you start to feel those negative feelings squeezing their way into your head, slow it down. Realize that those thoughts don’t help. Negative thoughts can become angry words, which turn into actions, which turn into habits, and eventually evolve into your character. Take a second before you speak or act and consider if you’re about to say or do something that will have a positive impact or change. If it doesn’t, take a second and refocus. You attitude will begin to change for the better.
