IF I COULD LEAVE YOU WITH ONLY ONE THOUGHT TODAY

CHANGE YOUR ATTITUDE TO CHANGE YOUR LIFE

by:  Velinda

I know what you’re thinking…not this again!  You hear it all the time…change your attitude to change your life.  However, the reason we hear this is because too many people haven’t figured out that it really works!

I know what it feels like to live with a negative attitude as I was exposed to negative attitude thinking while growing up.  I hated the way it made me feel, but I didn’t know anything else.  Then one day while driving, I heard a song on the radio, “is that all there is” were the words and I thought, “If this is all there is to life, living with a negative attitude, then forget it.”  So, I decided right then that I would change my negative thoughts to positive ones…whether I believed the positive thoughts or not.

Whether I believed my new positive thoughts or not was the key to my persistency because most of my new thoughts I didn’t believe…at first.  Then after approximately two months, I noticed a significant difference in not only my attitude but how I felt.  I was happier, I felt lighter and unburdened by stress, my future looked bright and I overall felt hopeful. 

I practice this even today when a negative thought creeps into my mind.

If I could leave you with only one thought today, one thing to strive for, it would be to change your attitude to change your life.  If you do this; I mean really try persistently no matter how much negativity tries to dissuade you, I promise you will change your life for the better.  Let me know your progress.
