Several years ago, the following article appeared in our local newspaper. My dad clipped the article and I recently came across it again. It is still timely and valuable advice written by Lloyd Shearer. Shearer was a celebrity columnist for Parade magazine (an insert in the Sunday paper) and wrote the popular column Personality Parade.
10 Ways to Achieve a Good Attitude
- 1. Set goals for yourself. Make them believable and clearly defined. Write them down every morning, vividly imagining them during the day. Once achieved, create another.
DO NOT PUT THIS OFF. DO IT NOW!
2. Avoid negative people. They put junk into your subconscious. You cannot help them unless they are ready to be helped. They are rarely ready.
3. Actively seek positive people. Make it a point to spend more time with them. Positive people are gems. Cherish every one you meet.
