Could You Use an Attitude Makeover?
If you're blessed with a naturally positive dominant attitude, you're in solid command of your life. You're most likely already living the good life you deserve.
But if you notice that a less positive attitude is pervasive, make the decision now to alter how you think and feel.
Consider the following regarding these more challenging attitudes and the ways in which they can detract from the quality of your life:
- Sluggishness. If you have a sluggish attitude toward life, you'll find yourself simply plodding along, doing barely what is required to get by. Chances are, you set few if any, goals.
- Annoyance. If you find yourself consistently annoyed, you probably rarely feel satisfied with life. Something is usually amiss. When you're annoyed, you may often sit in judgment of others, whom you see as unable to "do things right."
- Resentment. Being resentful involves feeling rankled, troubled, and worked up most of the time. You may feel challenged to manifest positive events in your life or enjoy the ones that do occur.
- Envy. Feeling envious of others can include wanting what someone else has or feeling spiteful toward or competitive with others.
- Worry. A prevailing attitude of worry means you often experience a nagging feeling that things are not quite okay. In advance of an event, you construct many possible scenarios, with few of them leading to a satisfying finish.
- Anger. An angry attitude is exhausting if you have to deal with it on a day-to-day basis, whether it's your own attitude or someone else's. Usually, there is a general sense of unhappiness.
Once you determine you might benefit from an attitude makeover, you can get started right away. Try these strategies to experience the joys of a more positive dominant attitude:
- Replace the old. Select a more uplifting attitude as your dominant one. For example, happiness, joy, peace, satisfaction, or contentment as your chief attitude. When you notice your old attitude creeping in, replace it immediately with a more optimistic, motivating one. Refuse to surrender your power to that old state of mind. Post reminders on your mirror and refrigerator and in your car to "catch" and let go of your old attitude.
- Affirm your new attitude. Apply your new frame of mind. Every day, say to yourself, "No matter what, I am [your new attitude]." Remind yourself that you're stronger than your old, ineffective attitude.
By following these suggestions, you can begin to enjoy a better life. If you need additional support, schedule a free coaching consultation.
