“If you adjust your attitude on a daily basis, no matter what’s going on in your life you can still enjoy your life.”-Joyce Meyer
Your attitude is everything. Attitude is many things-for example you can choose to look at the glass half full or half empty. You can choose to have a bad attitude or good one, a positive attitude or negative attitude. Our attitude affects us in a good way or bad, it’s all in how we choose to react to it. For me, when I’m having a bad day at work and it starts to get stressful I often get discouraged and I let it get to me, it brings me down and my work is less effective. I step back and ask myself, “Am I going to choose to carry on this attitude or am I going to check my attitude and fix it.” We can choose whether we will react or respond to any situation. I can choose to continue to feel discouraged or I can step back and realize that at least I am blessed with a job and that some people don’t have that. Some benefits of choosing the right attitude can result in reassurance, clarity, that job you were waiting for and promotions.
Attitude is really a matter of the heart. If our heart is tuned in to hear God’s voice, our attitude will be much sweeter and we can look at life with a better perspective.
I want to challenge you today. Ask yourself this, “Is your attitude really your problem, or is it your attitude toward your problem that’s the problem?” Then I would challenge you to ask God to help you to change the things that need to be changed in your life.
