Having a positive attitude tends to bring you up higher in life versus have a negative attitude.
You can be in a good situation and have it turn sour based on having a crappy attitude.
Or you can be in a bad situation and turn it into a good one by having a positive attitude.
Sometimes you have to be in a poor situation for an extended period of time and there is nothing you can do about it but you attitude can make it more bare-able. Why make a bad situation worse?
You see, the problem is not really the problem. Your attitude towards the problem is the problem.
We all go through attitude changes from day to day, even moment per moment per day. But we do have a choice about how we deal with any situation. We have choices about what our attitudes can be. We make mistakes but we can choose to correct them.
So is your attitude sending you higher or lower?
