In the Midst of Challenging Times Keeping a Good Attitude
Recently it was said the key word for the day was ‘attitude’. Taking time to reflect on the meaning of the word can be the first step to understanding it. What does it mean when someone says, “Wow, they sure have a bad attitude”, or “He needs to have an attitude adjustment!”
In a positive light, we are told to have a winning attitude as we move forward into unknown territory.
So what does having an attitude mean? A complex mental state involving beliefs, feelings and values, and dispositions to act certain ways; a deliberate pretense or exaggerated display, are several definitions.
When we combine the power of our belief system with a positive attitude we can create a winning disposition. This may compel us to continue to press toward the goal line. In contrast there is a negative attitude that believes no matter what is done it will not matter, there is no winning. It is up to each of us to determine the type of attitude and belief we will embrace.
You cannot tailor make the situations in life, but you can tailor make the attitudes to fit those situations before they arise. Zig Ziglar
Let us remember to take the power of a good attitude, focus our mental state, beliefs, feelings, and dispositions and create a more meaningful and positive quality world.
