The Psychology of Our Attitude

 

“Our attitude toward life determines life’s attitude towards us.” John N Mitchel. Our attitude determines what we get from life. People who are living authentically with happiness and joy seem to attract positive things to them, so it makes sense we would want to avoid a negative attitude. ⠀

Our attitudes however develop in infancy and are solidified by our childhood experiences, so it's not always as easy as flipping a switch to feel happy or to look on the bright side. Therapy can help with both aspects of an 'attitude adjustment', by looking at your family of origin and current thinking patterns that limit your outlook. Here are a few things to consider in the meantime:⠀

1. Identify what you want to change. Understanding clearly what you want to change is usually always the first step in making any progress in life. Evaluating your life without bias and self-judgement is where therapy can help.⠀

2. Consider how changing an attitude will change your life. Think and write out the ways your attitude will change your life creates a goal of sorts to which you can move towards. ⠀

3. Believe that you are capable of change. You are not limited to being the person you have been, growth is part of the human experience and your potential is unlimited. Change is hard, it's not impossible.⠀
