Is life complicated or straightforward? Fun or serious? The way you want it to be or the way others want it to be?
It all depends on your attitude!
You can overcome the most challenging situation with a smiling face with a positive attitude. It is not easy for sure, but you figure out a way that makes it easier to deal with it.
You can create complications even in the simplest things with a negative attitude! It is also not easy for sure, but you figure out a way to misunderstand everything and keep crying about your never-ending problems and poor fate.
Everyone has many problems, but some people are willing to fight them while others cry over them.
What’s the point here?
You will see how things start to change in your life with a slight change in attitude. Magic? No…it’s just your perspective!
#Situation1: People blame you for anything and everything or hold you accountable for your deeds and others’ deeds
Attitude: Instead of defending or explaining your stance, shift your focus to yourself and ask -“do you want to live with such people?”, “Are these the people whom you trust and want to make a part of your life?” You’ll know the right thing to, and ta-da; your life is a little less toxic!
#Situation2: Stuck in a traffic jam
Attitude: Instead of having road rage & continuous honking, accept that there is nothing you can do about traffic. Let go of your anger & use the time to listen to some music, talk to your co-passenger, listen to an audiobook, make some plans or call a friend to pass the time. Your response made you a bit more patient!
#Situation3: You lost your job
Attitude: Instead of doubting your capabilities & blaming your fate “why me & not others,” try to find the upside. Maybe you didn’t like your boss or work. Take it as an opportunity to pursue the dreams you always wanted to. You are a little more optimistic now!
