Developing and maintaining a good attitude in life is vital. However it’s not always easy!


One huge misconception about attitudes is that if you have a good attitude you will never feel bad or get upset. How untrue! People with great attitudes experience all the same sorts of negative emotions that other people do, they just work through them constructively and refuse to allow these emotions to hinder their outlook on life.


Everyone has times when they feel angry, resentful, worried, afraid, anxious, jealous, and maybe even depressed. The difference between people is how they choose to handle these negative and potentially destructive emotions.


Have you ever been shopping and had to use a shopping cart that had one wheel not working? Isn’t it stressful to have to push that thing while it is squeaking and squealing every step of the way? What an energy drain! Yet, that is exactly what it is like when one negative emotion seizes up our inner world. It drains us spiritually, emotionally and physically. That’s why it is so important to deal with negative emotions as quickly as possible so we can live with complete freedom.


It’s your choice!


Attitude …. Think about it.

  1. Hi Mark,
    I totally agree with you. We’re all emotional beings with human weaknesses, but we serve a very positive Almighty God who experienced many of our negative situations and gained victory over them to teach us to overcome, even as He did. We’re victorious overcomers through Christ.
    A friend gave me a card a long time ago that I’ve pinned up on my fridge, as a reminder, which reads:)
    “Attitude is a little thing that makes a BIG difference.”
    Thank you so much for your many wise encouraging posts that bless many.
    You are appreciated.
