“Our attitude towards life determines life’s attitude toward us.”
Life really is what you make of it and everything is a matter of perspective. The great part about that is if we like certain things, we can choose to have more of it! And alternatively if we don’t like certain things we can change the way we relate with it and create a new result.
Easier said than done of course, but this concept is perfectly captured in today’s positivity quote - “Our attitude towards life determines life’s attitude toward us.”
I think it’s creative how this quote positions ‘life’ as a third party with its own choices. If we see life that way, then we know that things can change because life can change its mind. It helps us realize that we can influence life. Just like a person, life is dynamic and responsive to you. It’s not something that is fixed and predetermined, it is constantly being created from an unlimited amount of possibilities.
One of the most fulfilling perspectives and attitudes we can choose to carry into life is that of positivity. As suggested by Jack Canfield, we always have a choice in the matter. He has the formula E+R=O. Event (Whatever happened) plus response (how we choose to perceive the event) equals outcome. The outcome is always dependent on your response, and if you choose to be grateful for the things that happen and see the opportunity in seemingly unfortunate events, you can manipulate the end result. This is life’s attitude toward us and we always have a say in that. “Our attitude towards life determines life’s attitude toward us.”
To wrap this up I want you to reflect on this - How in control of your response are you to life’s events?
