I started this morning reading a blog by Michael Hyatt. He was talking about how we impact people every day with our words, actions, and attitudes. I find this to be so true in my daily life and even with myself! I know, it sounds silly to say that affect myself. But the reality is when my attitude is negative, when I use negative self speak, and when I limit my capabilities in my head before trying, I negatively impact the outcome of my circumstances.
Take your daily carbon footprint for instance. How many places do you go physically, verbally, or virtually in any given day? You have interactions with your family, your neighbors, the people you drive with, the gas station, work, the grocery store, the bank, the doctor’s office, and so on. And that is just who you may physically see in a normal day. What about the people you interact with on facebook, twitter, tumbler, e-mail, texting, or by phone? We have so many opportunities to better the life of those around us just by choosing to have a positive attitude. And when you choose to have a positive attitude not only do you better the life of those in your day but you better yours as well too.
They say, “more is caught than taught”. So what are you doing in your daily routine to impact those around you in a positive way? Today I challenge you to check you attitude and your actions. Think about the way you talk to your kids, your spouse,or your boss. Are there people in your life that need a reminding that they are valuable to you? Think of someone who impacts your life in a positive way and share flowers with them today. Take your impact from words to actions and let them know how their positive attitude impacts your life.
