Just a Motivating Monday ~ Attitude

I LOVE inspiring things to motivate me and I thought what better of a day to read inspiration than on dreadful Mondays. If you would like to write something you think will inspire or motivate others PLEASE link up!! I’d love to read your words and I’m sure that others would as well!

Attitude determines how much of the future we are allowed to see. It decides the size of our dreams and influences our determination when we are faced with new challenges. No other person on earth has dominion over our attitude. People can affect our attitude by teaching us poor thinking habits or unintentionally misinforming us, or providing us with negative sources of influence, but no one can control our attitude unless we voluntarily surrender that control. ~ Jim Rohn

I think my favorite part of the about quote is No other person on earth has dominion over our attitude. Our attitudes are the one thing that we have COMPLETE control over. When our attitudes turn sour, there is no one to blame but ourselves. We are so fortunate to be able to rise above the norm and compose ourselves with an good attitude even towards the crappiest things, because it’s our choice….. that’s it!  We can choose to have a good attitude or a bad attitude.  Choosing bad only hurts us, so why not choose a good attitude and thrive?

Last week was not a good week for me. Actually, I think the past few weeks have been rather difficult. Saturday I woke up and here’s a snippet from my personal facebook page:

Raspberry hot chocolate, a better attitude than I had yesterday {by choice 😉 or maybe an effect of the hot chocolate} Today IS going to be a good day.

I made the conscious decision that my attitude was going to change and my day was going to be much better than the prior days were, and you know what ~ it worked. Saturday was a fantastic day! The main thing that I focused on all day was how I was feeling, the minute I started feeling annoyed or upset or anything along those line I checked my attitude. Our feelings are an amazing hint to our attitude.

With the right attitude we can conquer just about anything.

And as Andy Andrews said:

A positive attitude will make you feel better. And it will annoy enough people to really make it worth the effort!
