A journalist assigned to the Jerusalem bureau takes an apartment overlooking the Wailing Wall. Every day when she looks out, she sees an old Jewish man praying vigorously. So the journalist goes down to the wall, and introduces herself to the old man.

She asks, "You come every day to the wall. How long have you done that and what are you praying for?"

The old man replies, "I have come here to pray every day for 25 years. In the morning I pray for world peace and then for the brotherhood of man. I go home have a cup of tea, and I come back and pray for the eradication of illness and disease from the earth."

The journalist is amazed. "How does it make you feel to come here every day for 25 years and pray for these things?" she asks.

The old man replies, calmly . . . "Like I'm talking to a wall."

I hope you will not feel like you are talking to a wall after we finish the talk today because we are talking about the right attitude

The today’s life amassed with worries and tensions all around, and this makes it hard to keep a positive attitude. More often when you try to be positive, the more it seems the negative energy around you gains strength and makes the journey longer and more tedious.

We shall look at various ways to change our moods to being positive and keeping a healthier lifestyle. Glowing

Never Wait for Happiness to come your way
Never wait for good things to happen to you. Work hard to achieve it. In your daily endeavors maintain a happy mood attitude. This is an everyday coursework. It must be cultivated in your mind ( Give my story line)

This is called an attitude. On a positive attitude, life becomes more rewarding and more beautiful. When one embraces the right thoughts and ideologies, they propel


Place you priorities in a clear way
A man defines what he wants. Know what your life expects from you and this will give you a clear picture of your future thus making it possible to attain your goals easily and within a set time line


 Purpose is defined as the reason in which it was created for. Defined use for a product. For humans we say it’s what you edge to achieve. It defines a positive mindset or statement for ones existence. Knowing one’s purpose helps in keeping the right track on one self. Keeping check of everything that is articulated in the purpose outline.

Discover your purpose:

This is achievable by identifying & prioritizing the most important roles in life (at home, at work, community etc)

Write it down on paper so it will be on a cross check forum within you and your goals. Given we are talking of the right attitude, the list must list the strong positive qualities that you can achieve e.g. Charity, Tolerance, Honesty, Ambitious etc.
Visualize your future, with a clear picture in your mind of what you want to accomplish in your lifetime (you can become what you think you are and what you see). One of the most powerful techniques for achieving life goals is visualization (creating a mental image of something happening in future). Believing in and seeing your dreams can motivate you to become what you want to be.
Set goals for yourself (To help your dreams for the future become a reality, you need to set short & long term goals) to stay on course.
To provide steady fuel for your energy, create a list of long term goals to be accomplished in life time & break them into several interim short term goals to help you chart your progress.

Be Resilient
Resilient people are those who face setbacks but ultimately, with perseverance, recover from them. Try and be strong and face life’s difficulties as challenges; respond accordingly with action, rather than with fear, self-pity, inferiority or blame. While life can be very challenging, an important step in becoming more resilient is to develop the habit of positive self talk and to remind yourself that you are strong and can grow stronger and wiser as you handle life’s challenges.

Self Pep Talk
One’s inner dialogue is one’s biggest strength and critic. Listen to your inner self and talk to it. Motivate yourself rather than getting motivated by others. It is the inner voice that makes us critical of ourselves. Rule your inner voice!

Laugh Away
Humor is the best medicine. Make laughter a part of your day. Laughter is known to be a mood elevator. When feeling low, read funny stories or go through a joke book. Allow yourself to open up. See the funny side of things and you will realize, life is a complex, yet funny game.

Seize the day
Carpe Diem, as the proverb goes. Always enjoy the moment. Do not worry about your past or future. Live for the day. What has happened is irreversible and what will happen is unknown, so try and enjoy what you have. Like someone has rightly said:
“The past is history, the future is mystery.
Today is a Gift, That is why we call it the Present”

Be an Optimist
This is the golden rule to maintaining a positive attitude. Always believe in yourself. Being an optimist does not only mean to see the brighter side of life. To be an optimist means to view the surroundings wherein you maximize your strengths and achievements and minimize your weaknesses and apprehensions.

It is difficult to change yourself in a day But at least give it a try. A positive attitude in life will help you go places. Just curb that fear in you and move towards the right path!!
Remember, I CAN and I WILL.

I honestly don't where this came FROM but #1 most of is Biblical principle and for the next part it is philosophy that most sports coaches teach. #1 you can only be what you believe you are.
#2 From the Bible you can only receive what you know and have by faith.
