Managing Your Attitude

How do you develop a positive proactive attitude rather than being bogged down in the doom and gloom of the environment in these challenging economic times – that is the challenge for everyone today?

Where does your attitude come from? Your thoughts, emotions, conditioning and experiences which are all stored in your subconscious mind.


Attitudes are conditioned to be 70% negative and 30% positive. If a person sees a bird on the window sill – 70% thoughts are that the bird is going to dirty the sill and 30% thoughts are that the bird may sing a beautiful tune.


The secret is how to tap into the positive by quietening the negative voices. The average person has 60,000 thoughts a day – do the maths – that can produce a lot of negativity.

Negativity is a learned helplessness and conditioning and can be unlearned by following the steps outlined here. You have a choice every day regarding the attitude you will embrace for the day.


5 Steps to Change your Attitude:

  1. Decide: make a decision to be positive and STOP all negative activity, talk and thinking
  2. Affirmations: talk only in positive uplifting affirming words to yourself –you talk to yourself more than anyone else in the world e.g. say ‘I can do it’
  3. Visualise: create pictures in your mind of your ideal life – clarify your ideal picture of your life and start to live the dream
  4. Meditate: to quieten your mind, so you can allow the positive energy flow through you
  5. Verbalise: express what you want – written and spoken in positive language and words ‘words become your actions’


Take action on one/two or three of these steps to change your attitude.

‘Watch your habits they become your life’. You are in charge of your attitude.
