I began this year talking about faith, Fighting Parkinson’s, and 2014…the year of faith! In the past, I have written about this recovery formula being faith, attitude, action, progress. Today, we step forward from faith and look at attitude. What is your attitude about your cure?
Your attitude about curing yourself from Parkinson’s is every bit as important as your faith that you will be cured. Actually, faith, attitude, action, progress is a formula that heads in the direction of being cured or heads in the completely opposite direction. Here is how it works:
If you have faith you will be cured, then you have a “can do” attitude about your life and your recovery. With a “can do” attitude, the sky is the limit. Plus, with a “can do” attitude, you are more likely to put up with the unpleasantness of the recovery process because you want to achieve your goal of being cured and you know you can do it. With this type of “can do” attitude, you set into action the Parkinson’s Recipe for Recovery® and you make progress every day toward curing yourself from Parkinson’s. This is the faith, attitude, action, progress formula to being cured.
If, on the other hand, you lack faith, then you have a “not so sure this is working” attitude about you life and your recovery. With a “not so sure this is working” attitude you are less likely to put up with the unpleasantness of the recovery process because you lack faith in you being cured and you lack conviction in your attitude…you do not know you can do it. With this type of “not so sure this is working” attitude, you do not set into action what it will take to be cured, and you make very little, if any progress.
Your attitude is your self-fulfilling prophecy. Why not make it a “can do” attitude as you propel yourself toward your cure.
Here is some additional inspiration. Last week, prior to our coaching call, Bill in Tennessee sent me this quote about attitude. He told me it is framed and hanging in his exercise room, and he gave me permission to share it with all of you. Thank you, Bill!
“The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company … a church … a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past … we cannot change the fact that people will act a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. 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% how I react to it. And so it is with you … we are in charge of our attitudes.”
Why not make your attitude a “can do” attitude of being your own cure. YOU CAN DO IT!
You are worth it!!!
All my best,
