Attitude is Everything.

 

Don’t ever become a pessimist… a pessimist is correct oftener than an optimist, but an optimist has more fun, and neither can stop the march of events. –Robert A. Heinlein.

We all live in the same world, although judging by some people you would be shocked to discover it. How do some people appear so ‘lucky’, constantly regaling us with their good fortune, their perfect family, their wonderful partner and their amazing ability to seek out the best deals, the greatest restaurants and the most fun-ever weekend activities?

Is it because these people are endowed with an almost supernatural sense ability to make the best choices? Is it because they truly do have a plastic-wrapped perfect family that, at all moments, acts as if they are ready to shoot a commercial for breakfast cereal? Is it really because their choice in partner could make a Stepford wife look unruly and Oprah Winfrey positively intolerant?

Unless these people have been making the good old fashioned ‘pact with the devil’ I most sincerely doubt it! It is common fact that our brains can only process about 50% of what happens in the environment around us. So half of our data, the information by which we choose to understand and interpret the world is missing!

Having a Negative Attitude towards Life.

 

If we look at life through a negative viewpoint, anything bad or wrong will stand out, becoming highlighted and serving as an affirmation to our negative attitude. On the other hand, if we view the same events from a positive perspective anything good will become more obvious, leading to a reinforcement of our positivity. Try this exercise. Look around the room for 20 seconds, take note of everything that is red. Really study the room, full 360 degrees. Now close your eyes and tell me, what in your room is blue? I would be very surprised if you could find many things to mention, unless you know the room incredibly well. So now you can see that we find only what we look for.

This is why we can say with confidence that: “Attitude IS Everything.” In the words of Shakespeare: “there is nothing either good or bad but thinking makes it so.” A positive attitude has been shown to make people healthier, live longer, have more rewarding relationships and feel more fulfilled in their lives. So what are you waiting for? Join the merry hoards and try to find the positive side to everything. Once you can see the positive you will notice that you will feel a lot happier and enjoy life a lot more. Changing your attitude may not change the world, but it may change the world as you see it.

  • Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what
    theme you’re using? (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching
    for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus scare!

  • Thanks for sharing such a fastidious opinion, post is nice, thats why i
    have read it fully

    P.S. If you have a minute, would love your feedback on my new website re-design.
    You can find it by searching for “royal cbd” – no sweat if you can’t.

    Keep up the good work!

  • I do not know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your blog.
    It appears as though some of the text within your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if this
    is happening to them as well? This may be a problem with my web browser because
    I’ve had this happen previously. Cheers
