Attaining a Positive Attitude

Question: How do I attain a positive attitude?

Answer: A positive attitude is propelled by positive self-fulfilling prophecy. It is the self-proclaimed prediction that alters your actions and causes itself to become true. The fact that we have the ability to think also means we have the ability to control our thoughts. Therefore your attitude is either the lock or the key to your success. Positive thinking is not about fooling yourself – rather it’s about creating yourself. Yes, there are many bad surprises that a positive attitude can’t prevent but when it happens you are better positioned to have your attitude and perspective on top of a ladder rather than in a ditch.
