Change Your Attitude
I follow a Medium account Let's get writing!. It is a great account, and I completely recommend it. Every day, they give an idea to write about. Every day, I think about their idea, but ultimately don’t have the time to actually write about it.
This time, however, I am writing about their challenge. They wanted someone to write a story about the theme attitude.
I am a 17, almost 18 year old Senior in high school. Needless to say, I have an bad attitude sometimes.
Attitude is everything. People notice attitude. When someone has a good attitude about life, other people notice, and vice versa. I said I have a bad attitude sometimes, however, most of the time, I have a good attitude towards others and with most aspects of my life.
Also needless to say, people notice.
When I was younger, my parents were always complimented on how my brother and I acted. We were good kids with very positive attitudes. I get complimented on how I treat others all the time.
When I have a bad attitude, it’s obvious. I don’t talk, I don’t make eye contact with people, I also don’t laugh at jokes.
When I am not laughing, something is wrong.
People ask what is wrong with me, and when I say I am fine, they know it is a lie. Even when I try to hide my attitude, it illuminates out of me like a lighthouse illuminates the sea.
Everyone notices attitude. Attitude is clearer than the Maldives water (which, if you haven’t seen, click here).
This is only a short story, so I will end with this…
People notice attitude, so make sure your attitude is in line with what you desire for people to know about you.
