“No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars, or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.” – Helen Keller
According to the Law of Attraction, we are all creators, attracting into our lives whatever we focus on – whether we want it or not. In order to become a deliberate creator and attract what you do want rather than what you don’t want, a good place to start is by choosing a positive mental attitude. With a positive mental attitude, you can attract whatever you desire – including financial abundance, joyous relationships and paradise health.
Attitude is Everything. Attitude is defined as a complex mental state involving beliefs, feelings, values and dispositions to act in certain ways. Attitude is a habit of thought, such as Life is hard or Life is fun. According to the Law of Attraction, our patterns of thought act as powerful attractors. Do you have limiting beliefs such as I can’t / I’m not worthy / Nothing ever works out for me? Basically, any belief, thought, or attitude that restricts or disempowers you – any thought that feels bad when you think it – is blocking the natural flow of Well-Being that would otherwise be yours. As you uncover attitudes that are not serving your highest good, you can consciously choose thoughts that contribute to your happiness rather than undermine it. Our lives are expanded or limited by our attitude of what we believe is possible or not possible. My ten-year old neighbor loves the expression – It could happen! Without the slightest understanding of the Law of Attraction, he is transmitting good feeling vibrations and attracting good feeling circumstances. A shift in attitude about how life works transforms everything.
You Can Choose Your Attitude. Did you know that you can choose how you feel and what you believe? You decide whether to see your world as full or empty, positive or negative. Anything can be viewed as positive. Do you remember Pollyanna from the classic children’s book or the Walt Disney movie? Pollyanna is a young girl who is adopted by her aunt after her father dies. As an orphan, she could have easily given in to sadness and negativity. However, she is determined to see the good side of everything. Through her relentless attitude of joy and positive expectation, Pollyanna transforms a dispirited town into a pleasant and healthy place. The lesson here is that, no matter what your situation, you can always find positive aspects by choosing to be cheerful and optimistic.
At the end of the book, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Chris asks his Dad if it’s hard to take care of a motorcycle. Dad responds – Not if you have the right attitude. It’s having the right attitude that’s hard. Ah, yes – Attitude is Everything! Well, happily, as we choose Feel Good Thoughts over Feel Bad Thoughts, it gets easier to have the right attitude. With a positive mental attitude, Life is no longer hard. Life is FUN!
