Your attitude determines your altitude! | Attitude

Attitude check! Your attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG
difference.

I don’t think anything has ever been written that better describes the importance of attitude than these words from Chuck Swindoll.

“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think, say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill.

7 Ways to Make it A Great Day

1. Focus on other’s needs instead of your wants.  The great Zig Ziglar used to say, “You’ll get everything you want out of life if you just help enough people get what they want.”  Be the kind of person who thinks of others before yourself.  Remember Self-absorbed people are miserable.

2. Listen first, speak second.  There is a reason God gave you two ears and one mouth!  Listen twice as much as you speak.  Do people say you are a good listener?  With a little practice this is a skill you can easily develop and will help improve every relationship you have.

3. Resist the urge to complain.  It won’t make anything better and it brings negative energy to the room.  This isn’t you!  Bring positive energy with your presence, your words, and your attitude.  People will want to be around you.

4. Count your blessings not your problems.  No matter how bad things are or how many problems you are dealing with, stop and count your blessings.  And start with the ones we so easily take for granted.

5. Respond instead of react.  When you are sick and have a reaction to your medicine that’s bad; when your body responds that’s good!  If you are faced with a situation that makes you angry today do not react out of emotion. Be the kind of person who responds rationally with thought and poise. 

6. Make time to exercise!  You know you need to. You want to. You plan to…If this is describers you get some momentum this week by starting today.  You’ve heard it said, “Day One or One day?   Your body will release endorphins and you’ll feel better, be more focused, and have more energy.

7. Acknowledge God is your source and be continually thankful for every breath He gives.  Always acknowledge that God is the source of your life and the giver of every good thing you have.

Your biggest competition is you! | competition

Too often we fall into a trap of comparing ourselves to other people.  I see this so often in my work with young people, and sadly many adults continue to compare and compete with others their entire life.

They see someone who has a bigger house, or a nicer car, or makes more money, or has the “perfect family”, or has some quality they want, and in their minds they begin to chase after what someone else has.

Making Changes that Last

Jim Rhon said, “Your life does not get better by chance, it gets better by change.”   I have found this to be true, but I’ve also found that change is hard to make.

If you’re like a lot of people I meet and work with, there are things in your life that you would love to change.  I read of a study that said 92% of people who attempt to make a change are not able to actually make it.

“Fear or Courage: You Choose!”

There are many things in our life that cause fear.  Many people fear failure.  Some fear success.  Some fear what others are going to think of them.  Some fear the pain they must go through to reach a difficult goal.

Fear is a common emotion that we all must battle.

Leadership Lesson from Coach Wooden

I was remembering a great leadership lesson I learned from the legendary UCLA coach, John Wooden. I was fortunate many years ago to join about 20 other high school coaches in a private round table session with Coach Wooden on the Bruin campus. 

At the time Dennis Rodman was an NBA star getting much attention because of his antics and demonstrative style.

I asked Coach Wooden, “Coach, how would you handle a player like Dennis Rodman?”

Mental Toughness Required!

Mental toughness is something often talked about in sports.  If an athlete wants to be successful he must master the mental game as much as the physical game.  The mentally weak may have some success, but it will not last.  Lasting success only comes to those who have a high level of mental toughness.

This is true in sports and in life.

Life is what you make it.

Life is what you make it.

The quality of your life is not in your circumstances, it’s not a result of how much is in your bank account, and it’s not about how many things you have.

The quality of your life is the quality of your thoughts, attitudes, and actions. This is so important to understand because this means you are in control of your life.
