SUCCESS CAPSULE: CHANGE IN ATTITUDE
God chooses what we go through. We choose how we go through it .God blows the wind. We control our sails. And our sail is our attitude.
My dear friend, to experience a change in attitude, do the following:
IDENTIFY PROBLEM THINKING
Our attitudes are rooted in our thoughts. Negative thoughts produce a negative attitude. We must become conscious of the thoughts that do not agree with the Word of God in our minds, in order to eliminate them.
IDENTIFY PROBLEM FEELING
Become conscious of your emotions. Specify the feelings that are negative. Feelings like depression, discouragement, worry frustration and so on. Overcome them through prayer.
IDENTIFY PROBLEM WORDS
Words have tremendous impact on our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. We must identify the words that provoke negative thinking, and cause our words to line with the Word of God.
ACT TO EFFECT A CHANGE
Whenever you realize that the negative thoughts and emotions are creeping in, stop the flow. Move deliberately to positive thoughts and feelings. Take time to pray.
Don't allow yourself to sink into depression. Spend time in the Word God. It will give you God's perspective to issues. God does not just see obstacles; He sees miracles.
Finally, always give thanks. Jesus did that with five loaves and two fishes, and got a miracle of transformation.
As you show your gratefulness, miracles will happen in your life.
