Morning Attitude – It Can Make Or Break Your Day!

“Today is the beginning of a new day. God has given me this day to use as I see fit. I can waste it or grow in its light and be of service to others. Today is important because I am exchanging a day of my life for it. When tomorrow comes, today will be gone forever. I hope I don’t regret the price I paid for it.”

Do you wake up every morning to an alarm clock or an opportunity clock? Do you wake up knowing you can accomplish any goal you set? Do you expect to be blessed so you can be a blessing? If not, start tomorrow morning. No, start now! Say to yourself, “I CAN accomplish any goal I set! I DO expect to be blessed today!” It’s all about attitude. For some of you, this may be over the top. If it is, be patient, you’ll get there if you choose. All great things develop over time with consistency.

It is important to start our attitude off in the morning because a single thought in the morning can make or break our entire day! If we start the morning off with a bad memory, for example, and replay the memory in our head all day, we’ll continue to expect what we are already getting. Change it. Your attitude can be optimistic or pessimistic. It is totally your choice. How you feel most of the time is a direct result of your attitude. Optimistic people scientifically are happier, healthier, and wealthier. They have stronger energy, are enthusiastic, and have stronger immune systems. I would like to choose this one, please.

Say to yourself,

“I CAN accomplish any goal I set! I DO expect to be blessed today!”
