    Keeping a Positive Attitude
    "Hardening of the attitudes is the most deadly disease on earth." Zig Ziglar

    How to keep a positive attitude:
    • Confess your bad attitude to God.
    • Cast your burdens upon the Lord.
    • Be part of the solution rather than part of the problem.
    • Learn to look on the bright side of things.
    • Learn to be content with what you have.
    • Learn to be thankful always.
