Your Attitude Is a Mental Filter

Your Attitude Is a Mental Filter

  • Attitude is the mental filter through which we experience the world.
  • Your window is your perspective on the world. We all start with a clean window when we are young. But with age, our window gets covered in dirt from everything life throws at us: criticism, ridicule, rejection and disappointment. 
  • This dirt is what makes us doubt our capabilities. Doubt feeds negative attitudes.
  • Clean those Dirts!!

Find the Lesson in Problems

After a disappointment, you have a choice to make. You can either:

  • Keep feeling miserable

( OR )

  • Learn a lesson from the setbacks and move on

Often “problems” aren’t even real problems. Instead, they’re merely opportunities to take positive action. They allow you to improve and do better next time.
