A good attitude doesn’t automatically come. If you don’t make this choice most likely you will default back to a negative mindset. A negative attitude will limit your life. The right attitude is “This didn’t come to stay, it came to pass. It’s only temporary.” When you live with a positive mindset you can’t be defeated.

No matter what comes your way, you shake it off and move forward.

Maybe you didn’t get the promotion, “I know God has something better in store.” You got caught in traffic, “I’m not going to be stress, I’m at the right place at the right time. God is directing my steps.”

Medical diagnosis is not good, “I’m not worried, God has me in the palm of his hand. The number of my day’s he’s promised to fulfill.”

Maybe your dream is taking longer to fulfill. “That’s alright, the right opportunities the right people are already in your future. At the right time It will come together.”

Stay positive. Learn to focus on the bright side. Learn to see the silver lining in every cloud.

A lot of people use the excuse, “I’m negative because, I’ve had negative things happen to me. My business didn’t make it. A friend did me wrong.”

The truth is it’s not our circumstances that make us negative, it’s our attitude towards those circumstances.

Positive people have made up their minds to enjoy their lives.

They focus on the possibilities not the problem. Their grateful for what they have not complaining for what they don’t have. Positive people know that God is in control and that nothing happens without his permission. They choose to bloom where they are planted. They don’t wait for their situation to change, They are happy while God is changing the situation.

When you’re positive you are passing the test. Your saying, “God it trust you, I know you are fighting my battles for me.” I’ve learned if you don’t get happy where you are, you probably won’t get to where you want to be. Don’t wait for everything to workout, then you’re going to have a good attitude. Have a good attitude now, then God can begin to change the situation.

Some people would love to have our problems.

They would gladly trade places with you. They would love to have that job that has you frustrated. They would love to sit in traffic in that car you don’t like. They would love to have that husband that gets on your nerves. They would love to live in that house, that you think is too small. And as soon as I get into this neighborhood then I’ll be happy. No, why don’t you choose to be happy right where you are. Decided to have a good attitude with what you have or with what you don’t have.

It’s all in our approach to life. One man gets up and says good morning Lord. Another man gets up and say’s “good lord it’s morning.”

Which man are you? You control what kind of day you are going to have.

You’re as happy, as you want to be. A lot of times we are making ourselves unhappy. We can’t control the weather, the traffic or how people treat us.

If our happiness is based with everything going our way and everybody treating us right we’re going to live frustrated. Before you leave the house, you got to make up your mind that you are going to live positive no matter what comes your way. You have to decided ahead of time.

Colossians 3, “Set your mind on higher things and keep it set.”
