Apply the right attitude
Your attitude is the magic elixir to receive what you want in life!
Anything and everything that comes into your life is completely changed by your attitude toward it.
Anything and everything that comes into your life has both positive and negative aspects in equal parts (this is the Law of Polarity).
Your attitude, and what you focus on, will determine which aspect gets expressed in your life.
If you focus on the negative, you’ll experience what is unwanted. If you focus with your deliberate attention on what is wanted, the positive, you’ll have more of what you want.
Your attitude 100% influences what you see. And you have all the power.
Your attitude is determined by the thoughts or ideas that you allow yourself to get emotionally involved with. When you’re not feeling good, you have simply become emotionally involved with the wrong idea.
Your attitude is not determined by the weather or your job or by the money in your bank account. Only you can choose what you focus on and what you focus on will grow in your awareness and your experience.
Now, as we are aware of the vital role of attitude in life, let us look at some ways in which we can promote the right approach in life.
Cultivate a Growth Mindset
Firstly, you should understand the difference between a fixed mindset and a growth mindset. Having a fixed mindset refers to the fact that you do not want to change and believe you are doing fine the way you are, maybe because you feel there is no scope of improvement.
However, you can only lead a fulfilling life when you have a growth mindset, which means being open to change and accepting constructive criticism. One can never be perfect but can be contented in life with a growth mindset.
Reflection incudes being mindful, which refers to knowing your external and internal environment better. It has been found in researches that a majority of our actions and responses to situations are fixed or instant. Mindfulness helps you analyse your responses and actions to those situations which you otherwise do not pay attention to. You will start realising what makes you anxious or nervous about a situation, why you get irritated at little things, what makes you think you will fail at a particular task, and why you fear some specific things.
Following these methods aids in your success and helps you realise the role of attitude in life.
Be Around Optimistic People
Positivity is not just fuelled by yourself but also by those that surround you at home, at the workplace, and in other places. If you are in the company of those who crib about other people and things all the time, it is high time you change your company.
Being around negative people ultimately fills you with negative thoughts and that hinders your growth to a great extent. On the other hand, if you are surrounded by people who have a positive outlook towards things, you start finding the best in people and situations and move towards success and only success. Ordinary things like unity, encouragement and support can make a big difference in your life.
