Why I’m unbelievably Fantastic every day

My Positive Attitude

This guy nailed it for me.

Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do.

It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company, a church, a home a relationship.

The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past, we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable.

The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.

TLB – So I play off My Positive Attitude

I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you, we are in charge of our Attitudes.

Thanks to my good friend Charles R. Swindoll, American Writer & Clergyman, (b.1934) for sharing this with me.

In order to maintain my positive attitude every day, I wake up and say this to myself every morning, “I am unbelievably fantastic, hovering near ecstasy. Right now it’s not chemically induced.”

I have My Positive Attitude statement do you have yours?

Come up with your own positive statement for the mornings and say it to yourself every day.

How are you doing today?

I asked a friend this morning how she was doing.

She replied, “I am unbelievably fantastic”, with an attitude in her voice that told me she was being honest about how she wants the day to go.

Of course, I jokingly responded with, “Good to see you put drugs in your oatmeal this morning.”

But honestly a part of me wondered, am I rubbing off on others? Or was she just saying what I say every day, before I got the chance to say it.

Either way – I am glad she is doing unbelievably fantastic.

We all need to be, despite the stuff.
