In today’s episode of Trials & Triumph, it’s all about attitude. I know you and I are probably very similar in that it’s so easy to get frustrated and out-of-focus when things don’t go our way. When we have a death in the family, or a job loss, or when you just can’t seem to to get your house cleaned fast enough before your kids come trailing right behind you messing it up again! (Been there, done that!)
I struggled with finding a book that just jumps right to the heart of this topic, but there is one that will give you incredible action steps and powerful insights to help you improve your ability to maintain a positive attitude, and that book is Stephen R. Covey’s “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” As you’ll hear in this episode, I will briefly talk about Habit #1 in his book and how it made an impact in my life.
As usual, below you’ll find the resources and quotes that I have mentioned in today’s episode. I hope it leaves you better than it found you and I would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below, or on social media.
“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things. Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians 4:8-9 NIV
“I don’t like that man. I must get to know him better.” ~Abraham Lincoln
What do you need help with as it relates to changing WHAT you do, say, and THINK?
What changes can you make in your day-to-day to help foster that change?
You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn how to surf. ~Jon Kabat-Zinn
