What is the altitude of your attitude?
When I was on my first full-time job, I will never forget that many of us would greet each other with Good Morning pleasantly, but rather quickly. We were on shifts, and we would still have to get up to speed on the transition of what another has done. No matter what, the altitude of our attitude was very contagious. However, I remember that after I said Good Morning, their response was, “What’s so good about it?” That really set me back for a quick moment, but it was just a set up for be saying, “You woke up… There’s someone who didn’t. You’re alive! Have a good day!”
Personally, I shocked myself for the retort to the person. The person just looked at me and just nodded their head.
Smiles and yawns have been known to be “contagious” in the sense that when one does it, you are most likely to respond with the same. Your attitude is the same. It is “contagious” as well. Let’s look at this 3 minute video…
Doesn’t that video lift you up and what you to have a wonderful day. Your attitude must be at the highest altitude to have a lifestyle that is healthy. Being unhappy, ungrateful or having self-pit is not going to get you further in your goals.
- Read the definition of attitude: manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, especially of the mind
- Name one person in your life that you believe has an attitude worth catching, and give two reasons why.
- Consider the definition of attitude and the video and write an affirmation of how you will carry out an attitude of great altitude.
