How A Change In Attitude Can Help Us Live A Better Life

Updated on August 13, 2013

People often wonder how a change in attitude can help us live a better life and through my experiences over the years that saying is so real.

Your attitude, and the way you think and act can make a huge difference in your life, but many people find that hard to believe. I believe in it because when I tried to stop drinking, many times I just couldn't do it and stay sober. I truly think that first, I wasn't completely ready to be clean and sober, and secondly, I thought that I would never be able to get sober and stay sober.

I had that negativity going on so bad that no matter what I wanted, or thought, I knew in my mind that it wouldn't happen so why ever try. I never even gave myself a chance to see if I could get sober. I thought that my addiction to alcohol was far more powerful than I was.

This is where I made my biggest mistake in life. I continued to think I would not be able to get sober so my mind working on my body says it wasn't possible, but once I changed my attitude and my outlook on life things started to go in the right direction and I began starting to think positive for once in my life and told myself I can and I will get sober and stay sober forever.

Having a Positive Attitude in Life

Anyone Can Change If You Truly Want To

Many people in the world don't like change at all. They are very content with the life and the lifestyle they are living and don't want anything else in life beside what they presently have. These people really don't believe in their self and don't even give their self a chance to see life differently.

Changing your attitude for the better can improve so many things in your life and will change the lives of others around you. If you continue to walk around each day down and out and so negative about everything, these negative thoughts and actions just may rub off on those others that are associated with you and your life, such as you spouse, children, co-workers, family and friends.

If these people do not have the strength or the willingness to stay happy even though Mr. or Mrs Cloudy Day is trying to bring them down to their level of unhappiness, the entire world would be miserable and unhappy because of the attitudes that rub off on them.

So, how about it, lets get yourself a change in attitude and start making your life worth living. Start being more positive in life, and in return you will see how your life will get better all from the way you think and act. Positive Thoughts and Positive Actions result in Positive Results !!

Change your attitude in life and live happy, because don't forget, we only have but one life to live so make it worth while.

Live Life Happy and Positive

      Hi Cleanlife-- thanks for sharing this and for that beautiful photo. You are so right and I share so much of what you are talking about here. I'm putting a dose of gratitude in my attitude right this minute for you and your sharing here on Hubpages. I'm voting this one up across the board.

      @ Michele, Thanks you so much for all of your kind comments to me. I think the same and wish so bad more people would hear my words and listen as well. All of us are so precious in our own way and so many are killing them self slowly. It breaks my heart to see all these people destroy their lives with an addiction that is totally controllable.

      Nice to have friends such as you Michele :) Thanks again!

      @ ImKarn23- Thank you for your kind words to me my friend. I once wrote in my blog about mind over matter and you are so right. The mind is such a powerful tool for all of us but many of us don't choose to us it the proper way. BTW I added you as friend on FB

      Sorry it has taken so long to replay to your comment :(

      You wrote another very good hub. I keep thinking, there should be a way for you to give these messages to others, so more people can hear what you write in hubs. The things you write offer hope to people. Great hub, voted you up!

      How we treat ourselves is the best indication of how we think of ourselves! You succeeded because you finally believed you were worth it - and you began to attract the good karma and strength needed to get the job done! Mind over matter has been a motto i have gone back to time and time again in my life - and it has served me well, keeping me on a fairly straight path! You have every reason to be proud of yourself! You're worth it!

      Sunshine625, Thank you for reading and I do agree with you. Many people nowadays, when they are feeling down in the dumps DO take it out on others. I think I was at one time in my life, one of those people, BUT no anymore.Keep your negativity to yourself and don't bring down other people along with you. That is what I do now since getting sober. I am positive each day of my life now.

      I believe when you radiate a positive aura, optisimsm is bound to find you and like you! Be true to you.

      And for those days that you don't feel up to a positive state of mind just keep to yourself and don't take it out on others.

      Excellent hub!!

      @ Candie- I too try each day to surround myself with positive people, but as we know there is always that one or two people during the day you run across that will rain on your parade! Thanks for commenting Candie :)

      @ Kate- Thanks for coming around to read this and I too find I have to stop and think once in a while and ask myself why am I so down in the dumps. I have nothing to be negative about, so right at that moment I switch over to that positive attitude :) Smile, Laugh and Be Happy everyday right ? :):):)

      I find my attitude needs adjusting every day. You get to a certain point in life, and you realize you carry all these patterns that may not fit with who you are any more. Always needing to re-examine...

      Attitude can determine everything. I can, I can, I can, I cant. You're right - you cant. OR I can, I can, I can, I did :)

      I prefer to be positive and to surround myself with positive people. It makes all the difference in the world when you're trying to overcome something.

      Mark, what you say it true. After a while, a bad attitude becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy of sorts. Gaining the right mindset is key for success in every area of life. Thanks for sharing this helpful insight.
