November 2010 Happiness Project: Attitude Adjustment
Attitude is everything. And I firmly believe that life is 10 percent what you make it and 90 percent how you take it.
This month’s happiness project focus is on ATTITUDE.
Let that marinate for a minute.
How does your attitude affect your happiness?
Attitude is defined as your manner or disposition, but also describes a person’s tendency or orientation.
What is your general disposition or orientation towards life?
Do you see the glass as half empty or half full?
Your attitude or outlook affects your happiness.
Livestrong discusses the importance of a good attitude. It affects every facet of your life, health, career, and relationships:
Because attitude affects your behavior, looking at the world in a positive way helps you act that way, too. You have less stress and more perseverance because you expect things to turn out well. You’re more inclined to find happiness and success in marriage, in friendships and on the job, according to the American Psychological Association. That isn’t just because success makes people happy. Rather, a positive outlook contributes to success.
Use this month to focus on a having a better attitude. See how it contributes to a better well-being and happiness.
