HOW TO DEVELOP A POSITIVE ATTITUDE

We are either the masters or victims of our attitudes. It is a matter of personal choice. Your attitude will make or break you, heal or hurt you, bring happiness or misery, success or failure. Here’s how you can change your attitude.

No matter what happens, look for good and you will find it.
Read Matt. 7:15. A positive thinker does not refuse to recognize the negative, he just doesn’t dwell on it.

By an act of the will, fill your mind with what is positive.
Phil. 4:8

Never surrender to negative emotion.
Eph 4:31-32. A good way to fight weeds is to plant thick, healthy grass.

Practice the principle of replacement.
Rom. 12:21. Replace anger with love and fear with faith.

Bar the suggestive and immoral from your mind.
Rom. 12:2. Keep your mind clean by fellowship with God.

See the good in others.
John 1:47. Practice the “as if ” principle. If you wish to possess a qualification or emotion, act as if you already have it.

Determine to have an attitude of love and good will toward others.
Phil. 2:1-4. Change your attitude toward people and their attitude will change toward you.

Express appreciation and warm feelings to others.
Phil. 1:19-20. One of the most healing therapies in the world is to give oneself in friendship and service to another person.

Practice positive prayer. Mark 11:25 Pray believing.
