How to Change Your Attitude Today!Written by Jim M. Allen
Sure, it's easy to say, "Change your attitude and you'll change your life," but how do you do that if you don't know what to do? After all, if changing one's attitude was easy why don't more people do it? Especially if it means they could be happier, more joyful, and much more successful?
Honestly, I don't know. What I do know, however, is that changing one's attitude doesn't need to be difficult and, in fact, can be quite easy. . . . All you need is to consistently employ a few simple techniques and you'll be on your way. So, to get you started, here are my 10 tips to get you started on improving your attitude. Good luck!
1. Think like you want to be
It's tough to be happy, joyful, successful, etc. if you don't think that you are a happy, joyful, and successful person. Think it first, then do it!
There's no arguing with this one -- research has shown smiling has both psychological and physiological effects. So, put a smile on your face and you'll be on your way to a change in attitude!
3. Immerse yourself
Read books, articles, magazines that help you understand and adopt new attitude. Watch films or listen to music that inspires you and encourages you to change.
4. Change your actions
It's hard to change your attitude if you keep doing same old stuff same old way. Do things differently to start thinking differently.
Going for the Gold!Written by Jim M. Allen
I ran across an interesting quote recently:
"We worked in those mines, waiting for our golden years. Well, now it's our golden years, and it's done nothing but cost us gold. This is no way to live."
Those powerful words came from Jack Beeson, a retired uranium miner, who was testifying before U.S. Congress.
While Mr. Beeson was referring specifically to money in his quote, it occurred to me that his words just as equally applied to life itself and our general pursuit of happiness.
Think about it...
How many people do you know who are toiling, struggling, suffering through their daily lives hoping for -- no: WAITING FOR -- a few golden years at end?
How many people work so hard to provide for their "golden years" that they miss fact that each and every day is precious in and of itself?
