The Power of Attitude

“A Native American boy was talking with his grandfather.  ‘What do you think about the world situation?’ he asked.  The grandfather replied, ‘I feel like wolves are fighting in my heart.  One is full of anger and hatred; the other is full of love, forgiveness, and peace.’

 

‘Which one will win?’ asked the boy.  To which the grandfather replied, ‘The one I feed.’ ” —  (Origin Unknown)

 

This simple story provides the essence of a life-changing law of the universe…You become what you think about.  The words are almost too simple to ‘feel important.’  However, if you ‘get it,’ if you truly understand their meaning, you can forever harness the power of a positive attitude.”

Excerpted from The Power of Attitude by Mac Anderson

 

Sometimes simple sounds too good to be true.  The simple truth is we are what we think and the complex reality may be, how to begin changing negative or undesired attitudes.  Begin with choice.   Make a conscious decision to stop feeding the unwanted/negative thoughts and feed the wanted/positive thoughts.  It will not happen within 24 hours.  But it will happen, once you begin!  Want to live4ward today?  Which thoughts are you feeding?
