Successful missions employ the 4 A’s – Attitude, Awareness, Affirmations, and Action:
This week’s Kernel – Attitude:
Many years ago, I heard these words – “Your attitude determines your altitude”. It is a clear and definite statement. When we awake in the morning, we choose to begin the day as a grouch or as a champion. Only you and I can choose the beginning. Neutral is just average! Before we put our feet on the floor, or before we get up from our knees, we can decide how we begin the day, and that decision can have a definite impact on our life and on our health.
According to the Mayo Clinic, “Positive thinking helps with stress management and can even improve your health”.
Another encyclopedia of medicine writes: “Since 1940 it has become more and more apparent that the physiological function of organs and the organs systems are closely allied to the state of mind of the individual and that even tissue changes may occur in an organ so affected.”
So Whoop There It Is! Start the day with positive self-talk and appreciation for the gifts and blessings in your life! It’s healthy and it just makes the day go better. It will likely also improve your relationships!
