Thought of the Day: May 14, 2018 – Attitude Towards Family
What is your attitude towards family members, extended family, co-workers and the collective human family?
Your positive attitude towards family will improve the overall family life and bring everyone closer. It helps people become better husband, wife, kids, co-workers and people in general.
When everyone is on the same page, has the same goals and understands how they fit in to the big picture, the family can be a success. The family who works together wins together.
If your families attitude towards each other is negative, those negative attitudes can be passed on from one generation to the next.
A family who has a positive and supportive attitude towards each other, will uplift each other all the time. With the support of your family you are able any step towards your dreams and goals. They will encourage you to get back up and try again, if you fail.
Just knowing you have the support of your family can change the way you think about each member in the family.
One of the most effective ways to have families support each other is to celebrate the success of each person. Every day when the you get home, ask each other how the day was. Be open to answering the question but use positive words and actions to express your day, even if it was not incredible.
Another way to have a positive attitude towards family members, is to not judge each other. No matter what the other personal does, says or feels don’t judge.
We all make mistakes but if we feel judged this can impact us in a negative way. If you make a mistake and your family is behind you 100% it helps you learn and grow from your experience.
When you encourage you increase the effectiveness of what each member of the family brings to the table.
Become a good example and hopefully even those in your family who have addictions can come to you in their time of need.
As we get older and our kids get married, it may be a challenge to make time for the family to get together. I do believe if family wants to spend time with each other, they will find away.
Your attitude towards family should be, “My family on the front burners, and all other activities, within reason, on the back burners.”
I recommend you and other family members not dwell on past hurts. Stop causing pain to people in your family. Apologise and find ways to work together to get past the pain.
Once you have dealt with the past hurt, it is important not to dwell on it. Do not bring up the past events when you feel you can use it to hurt the other person.
Once the problem has been resolved focus on healing your family member(s). This is a good way to rebuild trust and move towards future goals.
Chooses to have a positive attitude every day even when you believe it is too hard. You get to choose how you deal with situations.
I suggest you pick compassion, understanding and unconditional love for each family member. Your positive attitude at home will ensure your families future success.
I have never met anyone who likes to come home to a family member who is negative, have you?
