Your attitude is your choice - take a moment to assess it. Is it worth passing on? Is it worth others catching? One of the laws of the Universe is that what you focus on will be what you get back, so the 'Tude you choose dictates the results you get!
Is your ‘Tude worth catching?
Too many people go through life at the mercy of external stimuli. You can live as a victim of circumstance, blaming everything on external influences, or you can choose to take personal responsibility for how you are feeling and enjoy a happy, fulfilling life.
Choosing your ‘Tude can make the world of difference to your daily experiences. Attitudes are highly contagious. Have you ever been around someone who has a particularly bad attitude? How does it make you feel? If you’ve experienced being on the receiving end of a bad attitude, how did you react? Often we don’t consciously choose our reactions, which can result in a less than desirable outcome for you and the other person.
Compare this with being around highly motivated and positive people. How does this make you feel? Do you react to them differently to negative people? Positive attitudes are also contagious, which instantly makes you feel good and in turn, respond in a positive way… and so it spirals.
The Law of Attraction
In a nutshell, what you focus on is what you will attract. Take notice of who you are surrounded by because you are attracting them. This is a great way of testing if your ‘Tude is worth catching. If you appear to be attracting happy, positive people, you are likely to be in a good space yourself. But take heed of your attitude if you are surrounded by negative people and choose a new one.
However, beware of the powers of the sub-conscious mind and pseudo positive thoughts! The subconscious mind doesn’t differentiate between positive or negative. It just hears the topic and will focus on that. For example if you say "I don’t want to be in debt” the subconscious mind will focus on debt and bring you more of it. A better statement to make is "I am abundant”, and the subconscious mind will go about bringing you abundance. The words you use are critical to your results, so choose them wisely.
John Assaraf from The Secret says, "The simplest way for me to look at the law of attraction is if I think of myself as a magnet, and I know that a magnet will attract to it.”
The Secret is a DVD with excellent insight into the law of attraction and how learning to use this law can be a powerful tool in what we perceive and consequently achieve.

If you want to make a difference in your world, think about your attitude and try passing on a great one. The benefits are numerous: firstly you feel good, which makes others feel good, this makes your environment nicer, which in turn makes you feel great, and so it spirals.

It’s your choice!
The really great thing about ‘Tudes is they are your choice. You can choose whichever one you like, whenever you like. They are also abundant, so they will never run out. You can choose them as often as you like and keep on passing them on.
