How Your Attitude Can Change The Way You Look At Your Life

Updated on May 9, 2011


There are two different attitudes we humans use and one can be called a Negative Attitude and the other being called a Positive Attitude.

How many people do you know that walk around everyday of their life being down in the dumps, complaining about one thing or another and being Negative in every word spoken?

I know many that have this attitude towards their life and to be frank, I wasn't know to be the most positive person either while I was addicted to my alcohol demons.  They certainly didn't bring me happiness or positivity.  They wanted me to be like them, down in the dumps.

Have you ever wondered how your attitude can change the way you look at your life? Think about it for a second, and ask yourself, are you happy and living with positivity or are you miserable and unhappy living with negativity each and everyday of your life?


Positivity is very contagious and it can and will run through the family. It's passed on from spouse to spouse and then over to our children.

Just imagine if you walked around the house down in the dumps, thinking and acting with negativity how the rest of your family will react. Your negativity will bring down the house, that's for sure.

Now imagine walking around the house cheerful, happy and just full of positivity. That positivity you are spreading around the household will in turn bring up the spirits of all around you.




Regarding yourself and how you live your life and the attitude that accompanies you can make or break you in being successful or a failure.

What I am referring to is that if you want to be an achiever and be successful, do you really think that having a negative attitude will help you achieve these dreams and goals you have set out to accomplish? I don't know about you,but my answer would be heck no, nothing will be accomplished with a Negative Attitude.

Take that same person and the same scenario, but this person is full of positivity and full of ambition to achieve their dream or goal. What do you think their out come would be compared to the person full of negativity? Who will succeed and who will not? It's really not hard to figure out this Q/A.






Success will not fall into any one's lap. Success comes from hard work, determination and the willingness to go to the top taking positivity along with you.

You are holding the piece that may change you life. The piece of the puzzle that will determine happiness in your life, living with that positive attitude or living unhappy, miserable and with negative thoughts.

It's all on you just how you wish to live your one and only life. To be Happy or to be Unhappy. To live with Positivity or to live with Negativity. Don't forget that how you look and live your life rubs off on all that are dear to your heart, so why bring them down?

Think and live with a positive attitude and with pure happiness. When a problem comes up in your life or you may of hit a bump in the road, don't let it get to you, because sometimes that's when our negativity may kick in. Don't give up! Stand up and start were you left off and continue to stay positive and whatever you are trying to achieve will happen.

Always remember, thinking positive will indeed bring more joy, happiness and success than negativity ever will.

      Hello Rich and thanks again for commenting, Means so much when I get wonderful comments on my writing. Ever since I changed my attitude and my way of thinking all being positive, it's like I have a new life Rich. Everything is working out just as I planned now being sober. If it didn't change my ways I would still be living with negativity. So Positivity is the only way to think not only for me but everyone should try their hardest to do it. It really works.

      Nice to hear from you again Rich and God Bless you and your family.

      We all need to develop a healthy positive attitude to help ourselves and to help those around us too. Whatever we face in life, it pays to have a healthy attitude and that's one of positivity - anything else and it's doing us a disservice.

      Thanks for sharing your positive hub and God bless.

      Yep,I have seen how attitudes can effect others. When I have tough times I, as the song goes, "count your blessings name them one by one, and it will surprise you what the Lord has done" No matter what happens, I have alot to be thankfull andpositive about. There is also the oppertunity of me learning by my mistakes, so that's a positve thing comeing out of something that may have been considerd negative, depending on how one will view that. Then, my favourite way to stay positive, is to remember God's word, "We are more than conqueres" this means that God takes something bad that the enemy throws at us and turns it into something that benefits us and does us good. Thank you for this hub, I love reading your hubs. God bless you greatly.

      Mark Antony I am so glad you enjoyed the hub and I will most certainly keep writing to hopefully get the world out to be happy, be positive and to just love life, because as we know we only have one of those (Life).

      You're so right, positivity is contagious.. but negativity can be also, if you're not strong enough. Note, one of the books you recommended 'Success Principles' by Jack Canfield, excellent!! Am currently reading this for the second time!

      So true, I take care of two ladies, One is always happy, giving thanks for all the good she's had in her life. A real joy to be around. Just being with her makes me smile. When I go to the others house, she's miserable, she hates everyone and doesn't want to hear anything good about anyone or anything. My husband laughs at me because when I get done working at number two's house, I always want to go back to number one. It's like number one is a cleansing. Brings back the cheer and gets rid of the bleakness.
