said every day we get to choose what kind of attitude we're going to have we can choose to be happy look on the bright side expect good i believe that our dreams will come to pass or we can choose to be negative focus on our problems dwell on what didn't work out lived worried and discouraged it's a choice that we all make nobody can force you to have a certain attitude life will go so much better if you will simply choose to be positive when you up in the morning choose to be happy choose to be grateful for the day choose to focus on europe mobility is a good attitude doesn't automatically come if you don't make this choice most likely you will default back to a negative mindset think it i don't feel like going to work i've got so many obstacles nothing good ever happens to me the problem is a net
five attitude will limit your lie we all face difficulties we all have tough arms but the right attitude is this didn't come to stay it came to pass tat only temporarily maybe you didn't get the promotion you were hoping for you can we base our that's all right i know god has something better in store you got caught in traffic i'm not going to be stressed i know i'm at the right place at the right time god is directed mustangs perhaps the medical report wasn't good worry god has me in the palm of his hand the number of my days he's promise to fulfil or maybe it's that your dream is taking longer than you thought but that's all right i know the right people right opportunities are already in my future at the right time it will come to pass you live with this positive mindset you can't be defeated no matter
what comes your way you shake it off and move forward so like a little boy i heard about he had a baseball bat in a ball he said to himself and the best hitter in all the world he threw the ball swung at it and missed picked it up straight this hat said it again on the bed hitler in all the world through the ball up a second time so away and missed again this time that is even more determined and the best hitter in the world he threw the ball up the third time concentrated swung away but he missed it the third time laid the bat down smile real big said what do you know best pitcher in all the world state positive learn to focus on the bright side see the silver lining in every cloud lot of people use the excuse
negative because i've had negative things happened to me my business didn't make a friend did me right our job i'm dealing with this sickness that's why i'm sour know the truth is it's not our circumstances that make us negative it's our attitude towards those circumstances you can take twenty positive people and twenty negative people and give the same problem demand the same job they say family the same house and the positive people will come out just as positive with a great attitude as happy as they were before the negative just as negative same problem exact circumstances to different outcomes what's the difference
their attitude positive people have made up their minds to enjoy their lives they focus on the possibilities not the problems there are grateful for what they have not complaining about what they don't have positive people know that god is in control and that nothing happens without his permission they choose to bloom where whether planet they don't wait for the situation to change and then they're going to be happy there happy while god is changing this situation when europe city you are passing the test you're saying god i trust you i know you're fighting ma battles for me and have learned if you don't get happy where you are you pay bali will never get to where you wanna be don't wait for everything to work
now then you're going to have a good added to have a good attitude now then god can begin to change this situation we must keep the right perspective some people would love to have our problems there gladly trade places with you they would love to have that job that has you frustrated there we'd love to sit in traffic in that car you dont like would love to have your husband its own your nerves some are you thinking i give you a phone number real quick they would love to live in that house that you think is too small and as soon as i get into this new neighbourhood then i'll be happy now what you choose to be happy right where you are why don't you decide have a good attitude with what you have or with but you don't have it's all in our pumps july one main gets up and says good morning lord another man gets up and says good lord is morning
which man are you you control what kind of day you're going to have your as happy as you wanna be a lot of times we're making ourselves unhappy we can control the weather the traffic how people treat us if our happiness is based on everything going our way everybody treating us right we're going to live frustrated before you leave the house you need to make up your mind you're going to stay positive and joy the day no matter what comes your way you have to decide at a time what it says in colossians three your mind on higher things and keep it safe the higher things are positive when you wake up in the morning you need us your mind for victory that your mind for success our attitude should be this is going to be a great day god's favour is all my life i'm excited about my future
when your mind is said positive hopeful expecting good things that's when you'll go places that you ve never dreamed new doors wide open the right people the right opportunities will come across your path but if you don't set your mind negative thought will set it for you you cannot start the day off in neutral if your pass it lying in bed the thought will come you're never going to accomplish your dreams nothing good happens to you you'll never get married if you're too old you'll never get well you'll never get out of debt you may not realize it but that's setting the tone for the feet for failure for a lousy day right at the start get your i'm going in the right direction this is the reason why some people don't have the inner they sure the passion the enthusiasm the vision their mind is set in the negative it's been there
way so long they don't know any better it's normal to them they go out expecting problems bad breaks to not be treated right to barely get by they live mirth he's law it says if anything can go wrong it will and at the worst possible time things will take longer than they look everything be harder than it seems because they have set their mind they go out expecting the negative they wonder why they can't get ahead and why everything's our struggle is because their mind has been set by default for the feet for failure for bad brakes you got a change your outlook you are a child of the most high god you are now were created to live an average get by short end of the stick lie you were created to be the head
and not the tale to land and not borrow to rein in life is a king that means you have loyalty in your blood win is in your dna now get rid of a negative mentality and set your man for victory set your mind for increase set your mind for good breaks start expecting your plans to work out expect people to be good do you expect to have a productive day if it doesn't happen don't fall back into their own negative defeated men how are i knew this would more for me joe it always makes me longer than everybody else i can never find a parking spot nobody trusts me right now you're not a victim you are a vague core you wouldn't have that opposition if there was something amazing in your future keep a smile on your face keep whispering in your stand stay positive stay hopeful goddess
on the throne you may have had a lot of unfair negative things happened in the past but don't let that become a stronghold a pattern to where you think that's all there were ever be you live with a negative my say no if god were to show you all he has planned for you it would babo your mind if you can see the doors he's going to open the people he's going to bring across your path the operator cities that are going to show up you'd be amazed excited passionate be easy to set your mind for victory this is what fate is all about have to believe it be for you see right now gods labour is surrounding you like a shield every set was a set up for a greater or combat every disappointment every bad break every person did you wrong was a part of the plan
get you to wait you're supposed to be fall into that negative mentality complacent just taking whatever i've come to your way knows your mind for victory for success for new levels in large your vision make with regard to do something new you haven't touched the surface of what he has in store i was talking to a reporter one time and i could tell he didn't like the fact that my message is very positive in very hopeful he asked what i would a person did it lost their job and didn't have family they were about to lose their house and had no one go and had a child that was they can needed treatment on and off he painted the worst possible situation i said i would tell them number one to get up and find something to be grateful for and number two go out expecting it to turn around
expecting new doors to open expecting a breakthrough proverb says when darkness overtakes the righteous light will come bursting when it's dark you don't see a way out you're in prime position for faber to come bursting in is it all your would not just be given them false hope will here's the alternative i could tell them to be negative get better give up on your dreams be depressed start complaining all that's going to do is make matters worse you may be in a difficult time but you have to dig your heels in and say i refuse to live my life negative our refused give up on my dreams i refuse go through life with no passion i mean see away but i know has a way it may be dark but i'm expecting the light come bursting in setting mama for victory that's what allows the crew
the aim of the universe to show up and do amazing things it's not his mind over matter is not just a positive attitude it your fate being released when you believe it gives gods attention when you go out expecting things to turn around expecting drew seems to come to pass expecting health wholeness faber divine connections then almighty god goes to work you may have had a thousand bad breaks in the past but don't use that as an excuse be negative one good break can make up for all those bad bryce one touch you god's favour can catapult you further than you ever imagined maybe you feel like you're fallen behind you were you should be in lie don't worry god knows how to make up for lost time here
we had a week several right things now do your part and shake off a negative mentality shake all pessimism self pity discouragement and get you a fire back lie is flying by you don't have time to waste day be a negative you have a destiny to fulfil you have an assignment to accomplish what's in your future is greater than anything use in the past we need to get rid of the old murphy's law and lived by just the opposite if anything it can happen today it can happen to you and me but be easier than have things it's not gonna take as long as it looks like you highly paid off
god is breathing in your direction you are equipped empowered and anointed you said george you're just gettin people's hopes you just trying to get us to live positive yes and here's why go it is a positive god there is nothing negative about here if your negative sour discovery you are going against the flow of god when we travel from used to los angeles on a plane it always takes us thirty minutes longer to get there than it does to come back home is because the jet stream flows from west to east when were travelling there there's a large massive air that's always blow against us slowness down the plane has to work harder use
or fuel spin more energy but when we're coming back home of course it's just the opposite the jet stream is working in our favour is pushing us for making it easier savings time and energy the same principle in life when we're positive hopeful expecting good things wherein the jet stream of almighty god things will be easier you'll be more productive you'll live happier healthier seymour favor when were negative discouraged everything's a struggle having to work harder we're not joy and lie pay attention to what you're thinking you can't think negative thoughts and live a positive line you're going against the flow if you go through the day thinkin i'll never pass this chemistry test i can't stay in my job my marriage is never going to last i'll never meet the right person
your life is going to follow your phone your drawing in what you are continually thinking about just like a magnet i can't pass this test your drawn in failure i'll never meet the right person drawn in loneliness i can't stand my job drawn in negativity i'll never accomplished my dreams drawn in mediocrity here's the key just because a thought comes does it mean that you have to dwell on you control the doorway to your mind if that thought is negative discouraging pushing down dismissing dont give it the time of day keep the door closed choose to dwell on thought that empower you inspire you encourage you thoughts it give you joy fe if you keep your mind fill with the right thought there were be any room for the wrong thoughts in other words all the day something good
is going to happen to me i'm strong healthy talented i will pass this test i will meet the right people i will overcome this obstacle my birthday are still out in front of me when your mind is filled with thought of hope faith in victory going to draw in the good things of god i read about this lady she had been sick for several years to try a different doctors but they didn't really find out what was wrong with her this lady extremely negative she's always complaining how she would never get well just like a magnet she kept drawn in more sickness the battle is taken place in mine's what are you dwelling on all day that's what you're drawing in sheep usually went to another doktor told him how bad she was how she was never go to get well on and on this doctor noticed how negative she was and decided to give
an unusual prescription hidden we're done this he said five or six an our i want you to say out loud git better and better every day in every way she felt that was strange to doctor i'm not going to that i want some real medicine i want a normal proscription he said you follow my orders and we'll talk about what's next she started doing this fifty sixty times a day and before long her attitude begin to change in a few days she noticed she was feeling better in a couple of weeks got our joy back her strength back a month later she was a different person all the symptoms had gone what happened she chain you're thinking and instead of drawing in sickness she's dead drawn in health sometimes body will not get well
tell your mind tells it to get where you want accomplish your dreams taken i don't have the talent the education connections you have to give yourself permission to accomplish your dreams per action to get out of their permission to overcome that obstacle it starts in our thinking studies even tell us that when we're name we think sad discouraging thoughts are serotonin level goes down that causes us to feel safe so not just in our thinking it starts to affect our moves but when we're positive hopeful expecting good things endorphins are released that causes us to feel happy to have more energy puts a spring in our staff if you go around thinking i'll never get well i'm so overweight i can't stand my job as youth those negative thought your fate your inner your enthusiasm is being drained
atta you just like a big vacuum its pull it out the good things god is put you'd be amazed at how much more you'd have how much more productive you'd be how much better you'd feel if you just switch over to this positive mindset you have to think thoughts on purpose this is good be a good day twenty fourteen is going to be my here i'm expecting an abundance of fame if four for puts it like this put on a fresh new attitude i've found yesterday's attitude is not good enough for today every morning you have to put on a fresh attitude want to choose to be happy today i'm going to be good to other people today i'm going to go with the flow today not get upset when you put on that fresh new added to its putting you in the jet stream of god that's when you will accomplish things that you could not
accomplish on your own you will overcome obstacles that look bigger stronger more powerful that's what daniel did the scripture says that he was a person of excellence he stood out in the crowd he was a cut above how did he do every morning he got up early opened his window and thank god for the day thanked him for his goodness thanked him that he was well able he was on a fresh new attitude he was setting his man for victory there's a young man daniel serving a king of foreign nation at one point this king put out a decree for thirty days no one could private any god except the kings god if they did we'd be thrown into a lion's den and kill well that didn't stop then he kept on into the god of abraham the god of isaac the god of jacob
of his enemies told the king the king was heart broken he loved to you but he had already put out this decree he couldn't go back on his work daniel said king don't worry i'll be fine the god sir is well able to deliver me that's what happens when you start today often faye thinking thoughts or purpose when you face difficulties you don't fall apart you don't get better wise is happening to me now you rose been faye and say mud it is well able more we're string for this battle no weapon foreign begins me whatever prosper the authority head daniel thrown into a din of old one hundred hungry lions they were expecting him to be eaten immediately but when you live with an attitude of fate god will fight your battles gods an angel to close the mouths of those lines the next morning early the king to check on daniel
saw him lying there asleep unharmed refresh the king not a mountain said hey from now on we're all worship the god of daniel that's the true and the living on here's an interesting thought in the scripture thing negative is written about daniel or about joseph i'm sure that made mistakes but you can't find a record of anything they did wrong other he was a faith like abraham moses david the apostle paul there are accounts of times where they fail where they blew it this is making the point that daniel and joseph we're good people but they faced bad circumstances unfair things happened today there were mistreated they faced in credit odds but if you study their lives one common denominator is they lived with this positive mindset they had an attitude of faith they didn't
better they did make excuses every morning they got their mind going in the right direction no indeed our god is well able they both saw gods goodness his favor in amazing ways leaned the same way you can be a good person and have banned circumstances it's easy to get negative and take i don't understand why my child got sick why came down with this problem or why these people did me wrong no dig your heels in an do like daniel git up every morning in them it's too that battle look up and say lord thank you for another great day lord i know you are bigger than this problem grey within this sickness more powerful than my enemies father thank you that today things are changing in my favor in difficult times more than ever make sure you put on that front
new attitude make sure you set your mind for victory and here's a key keep it said when those thoughts come tell him you're never gonna work it's been too long the report is too bad dismissed them and say like he did my god is well able he's done it for me in the past and i know he'll do it for me again in the future here's my challenge sue you your mind going in the right direction learn that thing thought on purpose some good is going to happen to me twenty fourteen is my year start the day off in fate if you'll develop this habit of heaven a positive mindset you can be defeated you're not only live healthier happy or have more energy and i believe and declare you will come there's more than you ever imagine you will overcome obstacles that looked impossible and you will become everything god created you debate in jesus name if you receive it
