Attitude Adjustment sounds so negative. Why? Because it is a term often used when you develop an angry or defensive attitude toward your job or others. I attended a Team Building course where I asked the instructor, “What if you hate the boss you work for, what do you do? He told me to, “simply move to another position or job where I don’t have the same boss.” Which is the typical answer I expected and usually the one most people give.

So can you change your boss that sucks? Yes and No! No, because you cannot control what is not within your control! Trying to control what is not within your power will always lead you to frustration, anger, and disappointment. Therefore, changing your boss that sucks is outside of your control.
Yes, because what you can change what is within your control. Only you can change you. First, it is essential you realize you have the power and influence over your thoughts, emotions, and outlook. Second, meditate on what you genuinely want and visualize yourself being happy. Third, immediately start planning what actions you need to take to get to that blissful place you imagined. Forth, do this often while acting on your plan towards being happy. Finally, celebrate often with every step towards your goal. All of this is within your control and once you start having fun and moving toward your happiness goals you will see yourself change. From the first step, you will see yourself smiling inside and out. Very soon you will notice your confidence increases, and then others will look at your glow, and they will inadvertently start to change. All because your smile is contagious.
In conclusion, the term, “Attitude Adjustment” can be positive. So the next time someone tells you “you need an attitude adjustment,” you reply with a smile and say, “I’m working on it!”
