How would your relationship be affected if you enjoyed greater self-esteem? What if you were to face life more enthusiastically and deal more effectively with inevitable problems?
The higher the altitude of your attitude, the more self-confident and together you will feel. You will be amazed at the effortless success of your relationship.
Examine your attitude toward yourself, toward your partner, toward your relationship and toward life in general. If you rated the altitude of your attitude as soaring high, under the radar or grounded, where would you be?
A negative attitude about our self, our partner, or our relationship will keep our relationship grounded. If you want your relationship to soar to new heights then you will need to raise the altitude of your attitude.
Not only does our attitude affect our behavior, it also affects our perceptions. Raising your attitude will give you a whole new perspective, one that allows you to see the beauty and wonder of your relationship as well as the obstacles.
Your attitude determines how you “see” your relationship. Are you focused on the problems in your relationship? Or are you focused on the strengths?
We have the power to choose the altitude of our attitude. Allowing our attitude to remain grounded creates a lot of tension and strain in our relationship. Choosing to raise our attitude will allow our relationship to grow and flourish.
STEPS TO GET YOUR ATTITUDE OFF THE GROUND.
1. RECONNECT WITH NATURE.
Enjoy a sunrise or sunset together. Go for a moonlight walk, or spend some time enjoying a lake, river or mountain.
