Does your Mental Attitude suck?

What is right with this picture?

Do you have the symptoms or the cure?

A healthy, positive mental attitude will create more miracles than any wonder drug. Patricia Neal

I read an article once that said that people with psychological problems occupy a lot of beds in hospitals with mental issues.

Do you often have headaches, high blood pressure, skin conditions, depression, or anxiety? If yes, you are probably stressed!

Now, why will you give a lot of attention to your physical health, strive to have a great body, yet at the same time neglecting your mental health?

Where does it start?“Don’t be pushed around by the fears in your mind. Be led by the dreams in your heart.”― Roy T. Bennett,

It is time, once and for all, to realize that it all begins with our state of mind!

Can you learn to control what and how you think? Yes! Can you navigate your thoughts towards a happy existence? Yes!

Also, you can go in the opposite direction, and you can allow fears, anger, worry, and a host of negative thoughts and attitudes to cripple your life!

Now, it is easy to be happy when life goes on like a song! But you also need to learn to sing even when everything goes wrong!

Why?

“Instead of worrying about what you cannot control, shift your energy to what you can create.”― Roy T. Bennett

Because, as the old saying goes: You cannot control what happens to you! But you have total control of how you react to what happens to you! 

And another question: do you? Do you have control of your emotions and reactions?

The truth is that you can learn to see the good in every situation, even the bad ones! It means that you can learn to be grateful for what you have, rather than complain about what you have not.

 It means that you can develop a positive mental attitude, and that will be your superpower, to help you fly above your problems, just like superman. A PMA for short ( Positive Mental Attitude) will make you as strong as Hulk.

Do you want to give in to pain, frustration, and despair? Probably not. Who wants to sing a tune to the words:” Tomorrow, we shall surely die!”

But the PMA has the power to attract health, wealth, success, and happiness in your life. It can help you climb to the top and stay there.

Always focus on the things that you want, not in the things you don’t want! Remember that every defeat has the seed of a greater good. It is a powerful force, the force of optimism and enthusiasm. Success is always achieved by those who keep trying regardless of the setbacks.

What is a positive mental attitude?

The difference between people is in energy, in the firm will, in the settled purpose, and the invincible determination. Vince Lombardi

It can be your superpower, your unique ability!

It is a force that is inside of you and aims for high goals and how to achieve them. You find it in qualities such as optimism, courage, common sense, faith.

A negative mental attitude has precisely the opposite effect. You also can find it inside of you in qualities such as pessimism, fear, uncertainty, anger, worry, and lack of self-confidence.

People are as happy as they make their minds to be, and the main difference is attitude! 

So decide to be happy even though sometimes you are sick, broke, pissed off or upset!

Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. Thomas Jefferson

Do you want to live your life complaining about the events in your life? Or do you want to learn from History that teaches us that man is the MASTER of his circumstances?

Fight to win!

Sometimes you are your own worst enemy! So what do you do? It would be best if you believed that you are capable of being the best version of you and expect the best to come to you because whatever you anticipate will become your personal experience.

Heaven and hell are in your mind, it all depends on which direction you are directing your life, and you are at the helm!

Will we ever suffer setbacks? Yes! Failures? Yes! Suffering? Perhaps! But no matter what happens, know that you will overcome it, just like millions of other people have overcome impossible situations in their personal lives or as whole countries or cultures.

You can be as happy as you make your mind to be, and the main difference is attitude! 

So decide to be happy today! You deserve it!
