SHOWNOTES

If we eat unhealthy foods, we think poorly and feel poorly. Conversely, if we eat healthy foods, we think clearly and feel vibrant. It’s not just what we eat that matters, but what we digest and assimilate that makes a difference.

Our attitude and language play crucial roles in attracting positivity or negativity in life. Our attitude towards life acts like a magnet, drawing in experiences, people, and outcomes that align with it. When we carry a negative or cynical outlook, we often find ourselves surrounded by challenges, setbacks, and discontent. Our mindset shapes our reality.

A ‘crap attitude,’ characterized by pessimism, resentment, or a lack of gratitude, unwittingly invites similar energies into our lives. It’s as if our mindset broadcasts a signal that resonates with negativity, attracting situations that validate our pessimistic beliefs. For instance, if we constantly complain about work, we might find ourselves facing more dissatisfaction or missed opportunities, reinforcing the cycle of negativity. People are drawn to positivity and repelled by chronic negativity. Continuous complaining or cynicism can strain friendships and isolate us socially. Our vibe influences how others perceive us and affects the quality of our interactions.

So, how do we stop being a magnet for negativity? By cultivating a positive mindset.

Changing our attitude begins with self-awareness and a willingness to embrace change. Here are steps to correct a ‘crap attitude’ and cultivate a more positive mindset:

  1. Notice: Start by observing your thoughts and reactions. Notice patterns of negativity or pessimism in your daily life. Reflect on situations where your attitude may have contributed to undesirable outcomes.
  2. Practice Gratitude: Gratitude is a powerful antidote to negativity. Each day, take time to appreciate the positive aspects of your life. This could be as simple as acknowledging good health, supportive relationships, or a beautiful sunrise. Keeping a gratitude journal can help reinforce this practice.
  3. Challenge Negative Thoughts: Learn to question and challenge negative thoughts. Often, our perception of events can be skewed by biases or past experiences. Consider alternative perspectives or reframing techniques to see situations in a more positive light.
  4. Choose Positivity: Make a conscious effort to cultivate positive emotions and behaviors. Surround yourself with positive influences and minimize exposure to negativity (e.g., limiting time on social media or negative news). The power of the five people you spend time with is significant.
  5. Practice Mindfulness: Mindfulness techniques, such as meditation or deep breathing exercises, can help you stay grounded and present. Mindfulness fosters awareness of your thoughts and emotions without judgment, enabling you to respond more intentionally to challenging situations.
  6. Focus on What You Want: Stop thinking about what you don’t want and focus on what you do want.

Our attitude serves as a powerful force in shaping our experiences and relationships. A ‘crap attitude’ not only attracts negativity but also undermines our happiness and fulfillment. By cultivating a positive mindset through self-awareness, gratitude, and intentional choices, we can transform our outlook on life. Choosing positivity over negativity empowers us to attract more of what we want and avoid what we don’t.
