Do you have a Positive Attitude and a Negative Attitude?
What’s the difference between a positive attitude and a negative attitude?
Individuals who have a positive attitude will pay attention to the good, rather than bad in people, situations, events.
A simple example of a positive attitude; when you are having a very bad run of luck but you still say “Good Morning” rather than “What’s so good about this morning”.
Well, Good news; you have a positive attitude.
People with a negative attitude ignore the good and pay attention to the bad in people, situations, events, etc.
For example; when a guy has so much power, wealth, and influences with great luck; but still complains and goes on a rant; well that person has a negative attitude.
Does it remind you of someone?
