Attitude Shift - 4 Steps to a Positive Attitude

Habitually, life is a grind, don't you think? Ask your friends, "Why do you go to work everyday?" Nine out of ten of them will probably say, "Because everyone else does." How about that for inspiration? It's that painful attitude that we find ourselves subjected to every living day. Therefore, you could ask me, "What makes you think that I can break free from the bonds of conformity?" And I would answer, "Because you can. It's a choice; as your attitude is a choice and not a feeling."

So you wake up this morning still thinking about last night's argument you had with your spouse about the pile of debt you have collectively constructed. You swing your feet off the couch only to feel the cold remnants of the dog relieving his bladder in the middle of the night because you were too depressed to let him out. You ooze into the bathroom to rinse off and take the obligatory shower and there stands your counter-part. With the argument still lingering in the air you both choose to avoid the topic by not speaking at all.
How frustrating can this be since your son has the biggest game of the season tonight and your daughter's performance at her dance recital this evening will make or break her scholarship opportunity. You have a mountain of responsibility riding on a positive attitude today, but your ghastly experience of last night still lingers like a leach; slowly draining your life's energy one little suck at a time. How do you let go? How do you strap on a positive attitude?

Here is a short process that you can put to work right now to brighten you life...for at least a moment. You decide whether to change your life forever. It just takes a little courage.

Time Management - 5 Mistakes to Avoid

Every day has the same number of hours, every week has the same number of days, and every month has the same number of weeks. Why then are some people so much more productive than others? The answer is time management. Time management is a system of structuring your day so that you have a plan for all of the work that needs to be completed.

Some people just can't do it right, and they're usually making one of the 5 major mistakes of time management.

Mistake #1 - Setting Unrealistic Goals

A lot of people set their time management goals by creating a long list of items that need to be taken care of, a 'to-do- list of sorts. This works in many situations, but you have to be careful not to make it unrealistic. Setting too many goals or unrealistic goals can impede the progress of the other items on the list.

When you set up a schedule, take a step back and think about whether you're not setting your goals a little too high.

Mastering the Skill of Happiness

Applying Happiness

Everyone wants to be happy, but not everyone is actually committed in doing what it takes to become happy. A real and honest commitment with yourself requires that you master the proper attitudes and actions to create happiness. Of course it involves careful study and practice. When you want to make a commitment simply saying you will do it will not suffice. If you want to learn to ride a bike the first step is to buy a bike. Imagine someone claims that it is important for him to learn to ride a bike but when you ask him if he bought a bike he says no. It shows that the person is not serious about learning how to ride a bike.

Just like making a commitment to learn how to ride a bike is up to the person, so to happiness. A person's commitment to trying to master happiness is all up to you. You can create it or destroy it all in a matter of moments if you choose not to apply happiness to your life. Your intense commitment to master happiness will enable you to experience more happiness for yourself and for the many people that surround you. They will be able to benefit from your happiness and they will be able to benefit from the way to interact from a place of joy. Even if you feel you don't deserve to be happy, or you feel that your life is too damaged to be happy you need to remind yourself that you were born and therefor you have an automatic birthright to happiness. You don't need to be considered special by any other person to have a right to be happy.
