Most people do not realise the importance of having a positive attitude, especially when working on the resolution of a problem. When you have a positive attitude, you are more open to different point of views and more likely to put things in perspective. By doing this, you increase the number of options available and the likelihood of finding the ideal outcome. In addition, you can overcome negative attitude by being aware of it and opening our minds up for other possibilities, other opportunities, other point of views… All these other options can, and often do, bring a more positive attitude. The more we do it, the easier it becomes. What is your attitude for today? Negative or positive?
Most of us know how hard it can be to get rid of a bad habit. The amazing thing is that it is all in our mind and there is a simple technique everyone can use to get rid of the bad habits and build new good habits. The technique comes from a TED talk from Judson Brewer: “A simple way to break a bad habit” (the full link is https://www.ted.com/talks/judson_brewer_a_simple_way_to_break_a_bad_habit?utm_source=tedcomshare&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=tedspread)
Life is all about on-going change and adaptation, like a photographer choosing the camera and options best suited for the purpose. How are you changing and adapting to take the new possibilities and opportunities in life?
We are never too old to learn new things. We may just be too comfortable to the way we think. Change your thinking style, seek new ways, seek new approaches, seek new… anything!!! Just keep an open mind, a growth mind to learn and grow.
Change will take place not matter what we do. If we fight it or try to avoid it, then change will take place according to what someone else wants. If we drive it, we will influence the outcome to our liking and our needs.
Too often, I see people working how to improve and at the same time unwilling to make any change. Why this happens is a long story and it can be easy to fix. Let us all do something to help each one of us get better at coming out with alternatives, innovative ideas and start to become more comfortable with making changes. Challenge: For the next 30 days, each day come up with a new way to do normal activities in your daily routine.
