Did you know your ATTITUDE affects your entire life?
Did you know at the core of a great attitude is perspective?
Your PERSPECTIVE has a huge effect on your overall level of health, happiness and success.
Because all things can be viewed in several ways.
You can choose to see invitation or limitation!
“Your attitude, not your aptitude, will determine your altitude.” ~~Zig Ziglar
Use the following 6 tips to bring greater happiness and success into your life:
1. Each day make a list of things you’re grateful for.
Gratitude is often overlooked because it somehow lacks pizzazz. I attribute much of my success and happiness to gratitude. Believe it or not, my challenging childhood actually helped my level of gratitude!
You can practice gratitude before you get up in the morning, in the shower, while driving or perhaps when you get into bed at night (my favourite time : )
Why does gratitude work?
Gratitude raises your VIBRATION and ultimately it’s your vibration that determines the RESULTS in your life.
If you’re in a low vibration, life is hard.
A HIGH vibration naturally moves you into the people, opportunities, circumstances you want i.e. the RESULTS you want.
2. Love life, not stuff.
Do you ever feel more possessions will make you happy?
What usually happens is after you acquire something, it doesn’t mean as much as you thought it would. The QUALITY of your life itself is what brings the most happiness, not your stuff.
However I often suggest going for “stuff” if that’s what you want because it’s important to have that experience.
There will come a time where you understand life is so much more than stuff.
Money is VERY handy but it DOES NOT necessarily bring happiness on its own.
What does bring happiness is what you’re DOING every day.
Are you excited about what you do?
If not, choose to find information that helps you live your passion.
Until you’re going for something meaningful to you, life will be meaningless.
I loved Kevin McCloud’s documentary called “Slumming It” because it reminded me and my family about what is important in life.

3. Enjoy the journey.
Our society has trained us to be in a hurry and expect immediate gratification.
I show people how to create worthy goals and achieve them however I also teach that the underlying reason for every goal is… GROWTH.
While it’s fun to achieve goals, it’s the growth we get from the journey that gives TRUE satisfaction.
If you want to see a situation as an INVITATION, then you will.
If you want to see a situation as a LIMITATION, then you will.
“We find things where we look for them,
which is why I never look for a golf ball out of bounds.” ~~ Robert Brault
4. Believe in yourself.
Life is far more pleasant when you have faith in yourself. Remember: You’ve already achieved many amazing things in your life.
Even learning to walk meant falling over and getting up countless times, but you didn’t get annoyed with yourself.
How many times are you willing to fall down and get back up?
When you believe in yourself and expect success, you’re more likely to succeed.
5. It doesn’t have to be hard work.
Achieving something worthwhile DOES NOT necessarily need a lot of effort
(although action and persistence are required : )
I’ve discovered if you keep hitting obstacles on your mission, that’s a sign there’s a better way and all it takes is a few minutes to pause and reflect. There’s ALWAYS more than one way to get what you want : )
Read the book You2 by Price Pritchett to see why “trying harder” isn’t always the way through!
I’ve read that book many times!
6. There’s no such thing as failure.
Remember a basketball player who is unwilling to go for the goal will NEVER score.
People who succeed fail
I’ve used Go For No to help me become friends with the word “no” and beyond that see it as an asset.
Go For No will help you be willing to fall flat on your face and go on to WIN : )
If you’re willing to keep going, I assure you, you WILL build confidence. After all, much of the time we’re afraid to fail because of the fear of what others will think or say about us.
Failure and persistence make us immune to other people’s opinions and what a GREAT attitude that is : )
That kind of freedom is priceless.
One of the most powerful messages we can ever hear is…
YOU HAVE CHOICE.
You hold the key.
You choose your perspective.
Go for it!
