Attitude is the Answer to a Fulfilling Life!

If I were asked for the most important advice I could give anyone, it would be to adopt a great attitude!

If you have the right attitude then the little things will fall into place.

But what does that mean?

How do you know you have the right attitude?

What if I think I have a great attitude and others don’t see it?

Some of the attributes of a great attitude to me might include:

  • A selfless approach to life;

  • Putting others interests before your own;

  • Always being willing to jump in;

  • Coming to the table with answers and suggestions … not problems;

  • Smiling through adversity;

  • Seeing the positive, even when things look bleak;

  • Treating EVERYONE with respect;

  • Being a person that people gravitate towards;

  • Never being a negative influence (read sh** disturber);

  • Being someone who takes pride in themselves;

  • Someone who wants to get better, and recognizes that it will take both work and time.

I could probably go on with those kind of sound bites, but even more important is that a person with a good attitude is usually someone who is at peace with themselves.

I’m not referring to religion or anything like that, just that inner peace that comes from liking who you are, enjoying where you are and having a purpose to your life.

If you are unhappy in any aspect of your life then it will affect all aspects of your life, so a balance is important.

It involves getting your head into the right space.

You need to work, so why not do it well.

You want positive personal relationships, so work on them!

You only get one life, so don’t have regrets when its time to leave!

A great attitude can get you where you need to go.

PS. To answer those original questions:

How do you know you have the right attitude?

People will want to be around you; you will be content in your own skin; you will be a big contributor at work; you will see lots of smiles at home; you will actually notice all that stuff!


What if I think I have a great attitude and others don’t see it?

You are wrong!

I write these articles with the intent of sharing MY experience and knowledge gained during MY life journey. From the 16 year old joining the Royal Navy, through many incarnations, to the grey haired guy who built a business. If you find a nugget here, then I am happy. If the message offends you then I apologise, that was never my intent. I know and recognize there are many people and groups who have a far bigger challenge than I have had and I only wish you well.
