How Your Attitude Can Impact Your Life

By Kimberley Cohen

Why is it that some people can look on the bright side of things while others seem to be stuck in perpetuating negative thoughts, anxiety, doubts, and situations and they they have a difficult time seeing the positive or give up before they even try?

What separates the two types of people isn't the person or the situation, but rather their way of thinking.

Your attitude has everything to do with your creativity, happiness, and love.

Viktor Frankl said, "The last of the human freedoms is to choose one's attitude in any given circumstance". This quote from a man who found meaning in extreme conditions in a concentration camp.

On the outside of the concentration camp it read, "Abandon all hope ye who enter here".

Just reading those words might make a person fearful and lose hope, yet Viktor Frankl was able to experience freedom - freedom to choose one's attitude and spiritual well being.

Wow...that's quite an attitude, wouldn't you say?

So how does a person adopt a mind set of positivity and hope when faced with uncertainties?

By choosing it.

By maintaining an unwavering inner strength.

By not giving up, and holding onto love, faith, and hope.

By tuning in, instead of out.

By having a positive outlook even when things seem negative.

By taking responsibility for how you are seeing things through.

By recognizing how your thoughts are impacting your life.

Easier said than done? Yes, sometimes it is. It takes determination and commitment to keep your ego in check.

Continuing to gain more awareness of the thoughts and beliefs, actions and reactions that you are choosing to have.

Gaining an understanding that you and only you are responsible for not only how you handle life's ups and downs, but what you do with them.

Life has this wonderful way of waking us up to what needs our friendship, attention, healing and most importantly, our love.

Love is without a doubt the answer to all problems and questions. It is the solution.

Read this a couple of times. Do you feel any resistance with this?

Developing an attitude of love instead of judgment and hate takes time.

Being careful and carefree, instead of calculated and careless, requires your attention.

Begin to take notice of what and whom you judge. It can be your body, your emotions, your friends, family, co-workers, or situations.

When you recognize this, you can begin to change your attitude towards it.

You can begin to clear the way and open your mind's eye to elevated thinking and being.

The choice of how you view the world and live and love within it is yours.

Sometimes it might seem like you've lost your direction at navigating through life. When this happens, your course is just being re-routed, not lost.

It's not about denying what's happening, it's about implementing a positive attitude when times are trying, taking responsibility for what's occurring in your life and the choices you make, and knowing it has a direct influence on your happiness and well being.

Don't wait for tomorrow to develop a mind set that enhances your life; you can start right now no matter what your circumstances are.

Remember, your attitude can impact your life.
