How to ensure success in 2014: Your Attitude (Part 4)

ATTITUDE AND OUR CHOICE
Keys to success
As we mentioned earlier, attitude and choice go hand in hand.  We can choose the attitude we would like.
In life I have often found, that between an incident and the response or attitude, there is a moment in which a decision is made. This moment is so critical. I have actually developed a lifestyle in which I do not allow myself to respond or react immediately. I afford myself the opportunity of an extra moment in which I can make a calculated decision. So instead of reacting I can respond with an attitude that I know will not harm me in the long term. If we choose to fly off the handle, it is almost as if everything is lost. Give yourself a moment and make the right choice.

Romans 12:2 Do not be conformed to this world (this age), [fashioned after and adapted to its external, superficial customs], but be transformed (changed) by the [entire] renewal of your mind [by its new ideals and its new attitude], so that you may prove [for yourselves] what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of God, even the thing which is good and acceptable and perfect [in His sight for you].

Our choices can bring about this transformation. Circumstances may not be ideal, but the choice of attitudes can make the difference.

Habakkuk 3:17-18 Though the fig tree does not blossom and there is no fruit on the vines, [though] the product of the olive fails and the fields yield no food, though the flock is cut off from the fold and there are not cattle in the stalls, Yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the [victorious] God of my salvation!
