Attitude is a settled way of thinking about something you believed. It affects who you really are and what you will become.
“Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.” Philippians 4:8 KJV
What occupies your mind more than anything else in your life today?
Your life is a result of your thoughts over the past few years and your future will eventually depend on what you think today, are you changing your attitude or your way of thinking?.
What enters our mind and occupies the thoughts and intents of our hearts will ultimately come out of our mouth. You can change your life today by starting to change the way you think. Here are some areas to consider that may shape our way of thinking:
- The type of environment that we live in determines our thoughts. Home is where values are formed and lifestyles are practiced. If one lives in a broken home, it will be reflected on his thoughts, words and habits.
- What you are doing during your spare time is the result of what you think about most of the time. An idle mind is the devil’s workshop. Good discipline of character is what it takes to spend your time wisely. Engage yourself in reading books that will help you in your personal development, spend more time reading the Word of our Creator, The Bible.
- There’s a saying that goes- “Show me your friends, and I’ll show you your future“. Your closest friends will determine how you think, and unknowingly influence you, Oftentimes, peer pressure has great influence in our life.
You can change the way you think by following some principles the world suggest but be to truly change you need to go back to the basics, go back to our Creator, ask Him how, examine what His words are, remember you are not an accident you are created for a purpose.
All Glory belongs to our One True and Living GOD, who gave us His Word in Philippians 4:8, let this be a pattern of our thought life today.
