Attitude Is Everything

"Our attitudes control our lives. Attitudes are a secret power working twenty-four hours a day, for good or bad. It is of paramount importance that we know how to harness and control this great force."~ Tom Blandi

We all know that saying "Attitude Is Everything" and it most certainly is! Case in point - this weekend I was a jewelry vendor at a local street fair. Saturday's sales were far from what I expected them to be. However, all throughout the day I maintained a positive attitude and had fun despite the low sales. Yesterday I went in again with the same positive attitude, but added even more enthusiasm...Sunday's sales surpassed Saturday's sales by 700%!

Always strive to have a positive attitude towards every situation you encounter and be mindful that everything happens for a reason. Your attitude will determine how successful and prosperous you will be in life!

This was a thought provoking article. Thank you.

As a professional counselor and behavioral consultant, I have to take issue with the suggestion that attitude is everything. With clinically significant procrastination, for example, the consequences of behaviors (including thought choices)are really everything. If affirmations don't lead to positive reinforcement in the environment, they actually fade.

It turns out that the vast majority of popular writers and serious procrastination-scientists overlook 70 years of behavioral science research that all proves a very simple "cure" for the kind of serious, life-interfering procrastination that harms the lives of 15-20% of the population.

It turns out that rewarding yourself is very, very important.
Overcoming procrastination is all about borrowing motivation juice from the things we love doing and do every day and plugging it in to energize the important tasks that we chronically avoid. This process actually gets faster and easier after each time it’s applied.

The basic, evidence-based behavior change concept here is the same one that’s applied to effectively cure clinical depression more effectively than medication.

It’s also the basis of the behavioral treatments that have been shown to “cure” many cases of autism.

Lets explore this together:
