As you go through your day, any time you experience something “bad,” ask yourself how much of that negative experience comes from your attitude and how much from the situation itself.
In many cases, the attitude shapes the experience. Take control of your attitude and your reactions to experiences.
Don’t let the circumstance dictate your mood or your actions.
You get to be in charge of your own body, thoughts and emotions.
Here’s an example: Have you ever been excited, happy, and going through your day with joy, and all of a sudden, someone says just “The Wrong Thing” and now you’re mad?
The person said whatever they said, and it may have been mean, or spiteful, or whatever it was that irked you. But, if you let that change your mood and attitude about life, you’ve given that person a lot of power over you.
