The most successful people in the world are not those that happened to be lucky in life. It is the people that have a positive attitude. It is the people that saw negative events, and rather than accept them they worked on changing attitudes and discovered the positivity inside them.
I have a friend named Frank. Frank is successful in many different areas of his life. Frank always has a huge smile on his face and is ready to give me a big hug whenever we see each other. He often tells me how fantastic it is to see each other the way we do, and his wisdom in life is always inspiring to me.
His secret? Frank understands that his attitude is what is determining his altitude. By keeping a positive attitude, Frank has been able to learn many of life’s secrets, achieve great things, and maintain a positive circle of people around him. Frank understands the secrets of life, and he demonstrates his love and care for others every single day.
Although Frank has suffered setbacks in life – losing close friends and family, missing out at work – his positive attitude when it comes to his trials has allowed him to become successful in most of his endeavors, and his attitude has given him the support he needs to succeed.
How Can I Get a Better Attitude?
Changing attitude doesn’t come quickly. There is no quick fix for giving yourself a positive attitude to life events. You will need to make some serious life changes, starting with who you associate yourself with.
You will need to associate with the type of people whose attitudes you desire. Associating with people that do not project the attitude you wish to have will cause you to lower yourself down to their attitude. If you associate yourself with those that have a positive, fun-loving attitude, then you will adopt the attitude and motivations that they themselves have. Without changing who you surround yourself with, you will never be able to change the person you become.
It may seem heartless at first, but a friend that doesn’t bring you happiness and “glass half full” attitude into your life is one that is not helping you become the person you wish to be.

Reflect and Apply
You already have the power within you to promote positive attitude change and gain altitude in your life. It is okay to be enthusiastic – your energy will be contagious and people will want to hang around you so that they too can feel they are going places in life. Ask yourself if the attitude you have now is the attitude you wish to have in life. If not, you will need to learn how to change your perspectives and promote attitude change. Start by looking at the people you associate yourself with, and try your best to surround yourself with only positive influences. Pretty soon you will find that not only is the glass half full, but it is filling up every day.
