Attitude Attributes

Posted on February 4, 2019 by America's Keswick in Freedom Fighters

The Lord has really been hammering me this year about my attitude – attitude at work, home, and in my relationships. At age 64, I don’t want to be a coaster – I want to make my time count for eternity.

I have been reading a great book at attitude, and while it is not Christian book, I have been astounded at how much of it applies to me in my personal walk with God. The author gives a list of attitude attributes. Take a look

  1. Attitude of receptiveness. You are totally open to new ideas all the time, and eager to listen and self-evaluate.
  2. Attitude of listening. You are positively listening with the intent to understand and question BEFORE you respond.
  3. Attitude of friendliness. Your mindset is permanently adjusted to friendly and you greet everyone with a warm smile.
  4. Attitude of willingness. You serve from your heart because you love to be of service. Serving makes you feel good.
  5. Attitude of gratitude. Grateful for all gifts and opportunities that life has given you. How grateful are you? Really?
  6. Attitude of awareness. Looking at all things around you, and seeing the bright side. Listening to all things around you, and seeing the bright side.
  7. Attitude of enthusiasm. Full of visible happiness so strong it’s transferrable to others.
  8. Attitude of cooperation. You’re a true team player that’s happy to help and eager to support and serve.
  9. Attitude of positive anticipation. Believe things and people will go your way and have a great and positive outcome. Belief in YES!
  10. Attitude of encouragement. Helping and encouraging others win actually helps you to win.

So my question to you me is this: on a scale of 1 -5, one being excellent, and 5 being poorly, how are you doing with your attitudes? I share several more with you next week, but I challenge you to go through the list and prayerfully consider which attitude attributes you can be working on this week, this month, this year.

Think About This: The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our Attitudes.” “The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Pastor Chuck Swindoll

This Week’s Verse to Memorize: “God is not a man, that He should lie, nor a son of man, that He should repent. Has He said, and will He not do? Or has He spoken, and will He not make it good? – Numbers 23:19
