Greetings Kings and Queens,
Do you have an attitude checklist? Do you know what an attitude checklist is?
If the answer to the questions above is no, it’s okay!
An attitude checklist is the process of transforming a negative attitude into a positive attitude by understanding how and why we allow barriers to block our productivity and happiness
The term attitude checklist came to mind when I decided that it was time for me to change my attitude about a series of recent events in my life. I was upset, bitter and angry. I wanted to also hold onto being angry, even though it would not have benefited me in any way, shape or form.
I decided that I wanted to RESET and to have a better attitude about the recent events that occurred in my life. I decided that I needed to write in my prayer journal as soon as possible. As I wrote in my prayer journal, I discovered and revisited a few things:
You choose your attitude; don't allow your attitude to choose you
Something’s are genuinely out of your control-learn to be okay with things out of your control
I have to be deliberate in my quest for God and happiness in a world full of chaos
As I continued to write in my journal I realized that I needed an attitude checklist: (checklist below)
Why am I mad?
Did I Pray?
Yes-No-If no, why?
Is it out of my control?
Yes - No - If no, why?
Did I talk to someone about it?
Yes- No - If no, why?
Where can I find inspiration?
Song- Music-Scripture-Poem- Article-Conversation- Through Journaling
Did I find inspiration?
Do you think it is time to hit the RESET button?
Yes-No, if no, why?
As I asked myself these questions, I added a mental check by the ones that I did answer "No" to. It was not until I decided to knock the mental wall of stubbornness down and build the wall of happiness by sleeping, listening to music, finding scripture and eventually talking those series of events through with someone.
Now this process is not always easy, which is why I encourage you to have someone to ask you these questions when you are not able to ask yourself or put yourself in check.
That was my process of checking my attitude, I use it for work and in my personal life. I would love to hear from you all- The Royal Court, let me know what's on your attitude checklist.
Stay Crowned Kings and Queens
