A good attitude is the ability to have positive thoughts about one’s self and one’s environment even when things are not going as one would hope. Why is a positive attitude so important? Look at the diagram on the right. What we think determines what we believe. What we believe determines how we feel. How we feel determines how we are going to act. When you think positively, you will believe good things are happening/ going to happen, which will cause you to feel better, which will lead to you behaving in a positive manner. The opposite is true if you think negatively. So keep a good attitude, it always translates into good behavior.
Attitude is the mind’s paint brush, it can color any situation. That means you get to choose how to view situations. Even in the hardest of times you can decide to have a good attitude about it and the situation will be infinitely better than if you had a negative attitude about it. At the end of the day, it is totally and completely up to you who you are and what you show other people. You decide whether they will see you as a person that is fun to be around because of your positive attitude.
