"You can't wait until life isn't hard anymore before you decide to be happy." – Jane Marczweski
"Some changes will be a challenge. You may change your job, or be forced to move away from familiar territory. These are challenges to which you can either rise or fall. Your attitude toward this new situation is of paramount importance. If you approach it with fear, you will jump at every sound and soon become a nervous wreck. However, if you look forward to it as an adventure, and you tackle everything that comes your way with a sense of discovery, you are certain to win in the end, even if you do make some mistakes in the beginning. As long as you are willing to learn, you cannot go very far wrong."
Our attitude is about the way we feel or act towards someone, something or a situation.
There are things in life that we have no control over but we certainly do have control over our mindset. We can make choices on our lifestyle, our work, how we spend our time, who we hang out with, places to go to, what to eat, what to read, how to respond.
Ultimately, we can choose how to face all our experiences, be they good or bad.
You see, attitude is a choice.
Our thoughts are what determine our happiness or unhappiness. Good and bad times are inevitable. Challenges are inevitable. And good is also inevitable. We are always going to face ups and downs. We are going to experience hurt and pain and go through sadness and we will also experience good things that will make us happy and excited.
We must accept that happiness and sadness will always be part of our life journey, no matter who we are.
We must learn to confront our fears in order to succeed in all that we need to do. If we give up because we are afraid then what are our chances of succeeding at anything in life? It is all in our frame of mind. It is about our attitude. “....Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it.”
Life speaks to us in so many ways and all we need to do is pay attention to the signs and give ourselves time to "go within". Re-set your attitude to one of a positive nature.
No matter what you are going through in life, always remember that you have the power to choose. You can either have a positive mindset or a negative mindset. You have the power to choose how you will let certain things in life affect you.
Not everything you encounter is going to be easy to accept or go through but you still have the power to choose how to deal with every set back or painful and frightening situation you have to face.
