Attitude Adjustment



“A bad attitude is like a flat tire. You can’t go anywhere ‘till you change it.” - Anonymous

I really like this quote, it rings true in so many ways. A bad attitude not only affects how you feel on the inside, it can also effect the choices you make, the effort you put into achieving your goals, the people around you, and who wants to BE around you It’s not pretty.

How many times have you been around someone whose constant complaining leaves you at a loss for what to say to them, even if it’s a close friend or family member? You listen, sympathize, make positive suggestions, but it’s sort of draining, and leaves you feeling a bit down, right? You might start looking for things to complain about (don’t do it!). We tend to mimic the communication styles of those we’re talking to because it makes us feel more connected.

Fact -- It’s important to surround yourself with POSITIVE, SUPPORTIVE people who will keep you accountable, motivated, and encouraged. We in turn have a responsibility to be positive for those around us. It’s a great feeling knowing that you brightened someone’s day :)

What is something you did in the past week/weekend to make someone’s day better?

Carpe Diem,

Jesse
