There is a HUGE difference!
You see, in any given day you will have progress and setbacks, triumphs and failures that’s the mystery of life!
In my experience with clients, as good a day as some people have, they will manage to find something to complain and fret about. They will say “It’s just luck, it won’t last. I’m destined for misery”.
And of course they always seem to counter with as bad a day as others have, they will see the good in it. They will say” So what! I’m still alive, still kicking and nothing’s going to stop me.”! Their frail positive attitude is usually quite flimsy.
Which attitude will win over the day? And the next day and the next- consistently positive attitudes build on each other for a lasting effect.
You see you truly have control over your consistent attitude. You can enjoy your accomplishments without diminishing them. You deserve the rewards you give yourself.
With the response of accepting failures as opportunities to learn, they lose the sting that once was associated with them as well.
By choosing to respond, you have the power to make every day a positive outcome day.
When you choose responding and a creative attitude, it is not what happens to you, it is how you choose to respond that makes reacting unnecessary.
