Attitudes of Power

There are attitudes of power that will energize your life and bring vitality into everything you see and do. These powerful attitudes and emotions allow you to move forward into a more energized, vivacious, productive life.

One of the very first energizing principles is an attitude of gratitude. Live with an attitude of gratitude. Could you have more? Could you do better in your life, your finances, your hobbies? You need to appreciate what you have.

What’s a major culture shock for most of us is to go to some third world countries where they don’t have opulence like we do in the Western world. It’s a real eye opener. In many cases it makes you feel very grateful for all that you have.

Couldn’t you stand more? Of course, but gratitude is an aspect of love and thankfulness that are blended together. Gratitude is saying, “I’ve got stuff, I’ve got good things, I’ve got me, I’ve got health, I’ve got air, I’ve got what I need.” More? Sure more is fine but that isn’t necessarily something that you have to have.

Cultivate the attitude of gratitude and your life will begin to grow and expand because this gratitude principle is part of the ultimate law of success. To succeed you have to be grateful for what you have. If you do not feel grateful for what you have the universe will, in many cases, take away from you that which you do have. You have to be willing to enjoy it and to appreciate those things or you tend to lose them.

Another attitude of proactiveness and power is being cheerful, optimistic and warm towards other human beings. This means you are focused on the good. You are focused on things that are of benefit to you and the people around you. You focus on the beautiful day, you focus on the help that someone has given you. You focus on the joy you get from the people you associate with at your work, neighborhood or church.

There are things that are absolutely unfair. People are not always nice. Tough decisions have to be made. Scary things happen that just absolutely terrify you. People say hurtful things. Yeah of course, that’s reality. But don’t waste your time dwelling on that stuff.

Get over that negativity. Focus on the opportunities in your life. Focus on the good you can have, and that you can do. Believe in the possibilities and you can have all the abundance you are willing to claim. And, because you’re positive, others will be more attracted to you.

Who do you want to be around; some grumpy, nasty, mean-hearted person, or somebody who’s proactive, humorous and cheerful? Somebody who really goes out and gives life their best shot. They do what they can do and they do it with a positive attitude. Think about it—which of those people are you making yourself into?

Every single thought you have is adding a grain of sand to the negative or to the positive emotional scale of your life. And it’s absolutely a choice. Every thought you think is building more of the good stuff or the bad stuff. Which are you compounding in your life?

A third attitude of power that supports and energizes your life is passion, enthusiasm and excitement. Get your energy up! Years ago I heard a motivator by the name of Glenn Turner say, “If you want to be enthusiastic you have to act enthusiastic!” which absolutely aligns with behavioral psychology, neuro-linguistic programming and cognitive conditioning.. It gets your energy up. Don’t bemoan what isn’t working.

Pick something, put your energy behind it and go for it. Get excited. You give it your best shot; your brain and your body will focus in that direction. Chart a course of action. Launch yourself into it. This power of passion moves you forward faster and easier because you see the possibilities and are clear about what you want.

Passion is a focusing device. Excitement and enthusiasm drive you. Use your mind, use your body; use your emotions to energize your life. Focus on the action with enthusiasm. Put yourself in motion.

To be proactive means to go out and go for it. In Latin, pro means “for; positive, towards”. Action means “to move, or put in motion”. So proactive means I put myself in a positive motion forward.

Be proactive, be passionate, have this positive energy in your life. Keep these attitudes of power alive throughout your day. You will feel better and the people around you will love it.
