Winston Churchill once said, “Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
What is your attitude—right now, at this moment—toward your spouse? Your kids? Your supervisor? Your employee? Toward life in general? Are you feeling . . .
like a victim or a victor?
ungrateful or appreciative?
bitter or tender?
angry or joyful?
betrayed or beloved?
critical or congratulatory?
negative or positive?
pessimistic or hopeful?
resentful or content?

You may be wondering where I am going with all this, and here it is—I am simply guiding you toward self-awareness. I realize you may already have a general sense of the attitudes you are carrying, but maybe in the busyness of life, you just needed a moment to stop and reflect on your current state of mind. I call this an "attitude check."
It’s important to become aware of your attitude because (whether you like it or not) it sets an atmosphere that affects how you perceive others and how others perceive you. And the scary truth is, we're often unaware of the vibes we are sending out.
Your attitude—for better or worse—is affecting your relationships. If in the exercise above you identified primarily negative descriptors, then maybe it’s time to own the negative vibes you are sending out and make an attitude adjustment. Why not take a moment each day (more often, if necessary) and check your attitude? Make positive adjustments when you find negativity settling in. If you do, you may just find that others are a bit more comfortable in your presence.
