Law of Attraction

Posted on

Positive attracts positive

Have you ever been in a bad mood and had someone change it by being in a good mood? Our attitude affects others, whether it be positive or negative. It is as though we are “attitude generators” waiting to power those around us. The happier we get, the happier those around us are. Or, on the flip side, the more aggravated we are the more agitated people around us are. No matter which direction our attitude takes, it seems to multiply through others. On the battle fields, before a great confrontation, generals would call their men together and give speeches of encouragement. Their speeches echoed the fire that burned in their soul. As they proceeded they would get more passionate and that passion could be felt by their men. Soon every man had that fire burning in their soul. Victory was inevitable.

A negative attitude attracts negativity. People who delve in drama will find themselves surrounded by others with drama. Their problems are multiplied by the problem of others. In order to stop the cycle a person must vacate the presence of those with drama. They must stop focusing on their problems and focus on solutions. If a person wants help they must be willing to change. This sounds simple, but we do not like change. How accepting are we of change. This is especially true if the solution to our problem comes from someone else.

Case studies have shown that a person with a positive attitude has less health problems. They have fewer sick days, and they are more productive. Hmmm… I think management just perked up. Face it, we love being around happy people as opposed to whiners. Who needs all of that negativity any how? A person with a positive attitude attracts others with positive attitudes. Their motivation builds and the stress level goes down. Life gets easier.

If we had a choice, which attitude would we choose? Of course, we would choose to be happy. So why do we have so many people running around in a bad mood? Most of the time it is because we get wrapped up into the moment. We get so focused on the bad situation that we forget to look for the silver lining. We are programed to look at the negative first then find the positive. The first word we learn as a child is “No”. We need to change our view. Remember what I said about change? It’s time to put it to the test. I challenge you to start seeing the positive in every situation. A flat tire can lead to new prospects. A paper jam in the printer can lead to that trouble call finally being put in.

This leads me to my next point. Be professional at all times. Do not lose your cool. Sure we all have an angry side that just beckons to come out when things go wrong. Having dealt with my own temper for most of my life, I know what I’m saying here. It’s not professional. If we cannot conduct a conversation at normal tone then we do not need to speak. Yelling is what amateurs do. We are not amateurs, right? Right.

Thanks for taking the time to read this, and may we always attract the right people into our lives.

    This was really inspiring and simple all at the same time. I have a sign on my door that reads, “If it doesn’t nurture your soul, pitch it.” Negativity is just like that. I strive for joy, peace and positive attitude. Great post.

        I always loved to write and tell stories to people around me. My blog is called acookingpotandtwistedtales.com. I started blogging because it gave voice to my stories and my thoughts which I got tired of storing inside my head or my journals. I am also writing some novels (hoping to get published some day soon). I am a mom of three children and one husband 🙂 Nigerian by birth and living in Houston at present.

    What I have found quite interesting is that people living with some pretty difficult circumstances can overcome their situations and find happiness, joy etc and yet others get weighed down by relatively little and give up. When you look into resiliance, this is no surprise because it appears that going through the school of hard knocks actually prepares you better for happiness in the long run.

    Good stuff! Simple and true. I am sure many have read the book, “Don’t sweat the small stuff” that contains a lot of down-to-earth suggestions!
