Attitude changes everything. I’m sure you’ve seen the motivational posters that say “Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.” Well, it’s true.
The adventurous commute
How do you feel about your commute? Is it a dreadful pain to be endured twice a day? It doesn’t have to be.
My commute is an adventure. I love it (even if I don’t quite like the destination). My day starts off with an exciting trip, and going home is even better because I love the trip. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that I enjoy the traffic, getting caught at lights, or am thrilled with the people who cut me off. However, because I approach the commute as an adventure, I do find it to be enjoyable.
I know that others don’t see it the same way I do. They look through their windshield wipers at me on my motorcycle, in the 30-something degree weather, and you can see the bewilderment on their faces.
A different approach
All that you need to do to change your attitude is decide to take a different approach than normal. Instead of dreading your commute, look at it as an adventure. Don’t like your job? Look at it like a challenge instead of a chore. Having a hard time finding a job? Make it a game.
We get out of life what we put into it. You know what they say about lemons, you can either be sour or make lemonade.
