Dear Fred

what is the steps in developing a positive mental attitude.

Fred's Response

It is all a matter of a decision. In life you are confronted with many choices--generally between the positive and the negative. Psychologists William James and Victor Frankel has said we can choose our attitude which is our ultimate freedom. There are many advantages to choosing from a positive attitude. Solutions come readily to mind. Things that would frighten you now brings a challenge. The pastor at Lloyd Bentsen memorial service defined him as a man of solutions. People like to be around you if you are positive they will avoid you if you are negative. The Christian faith is a positive one not a negative one. Once I listed the negative emotions we are told, in Scripture, to avoid. I came up with twenty-four just out of my head. For example greed, fear worry, anxiety.
