    Book Reviews

    I love to read and review books and have a very broad range of genre interests. Reading and reviewing Advanced Review Copies is also something that I greatly enjoy and am always more than happy to do. I express my opinions openly and love to share the great new books and authors that I come across. I am more than thrilled to do reviews for any author and/or publisher.

Principle 6


The Basics: A positive attitude yields positive results – a negative attitude yields the opposite.

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. 
                                                                                         – Colossians 3:2 NKJV

Those who are pure in their thinking are happy, because they will be with God.
                                                                                         – Matthew 5:8 NCV

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.
                                                                                         – Philippians 4:8 NASB

A Basic Tip: Attitudes are contagious, so it’s important to associate with people who are upbeat, optimistic, and encouraging.

I became aware of one very important concept I had missed before: my attitude – not my circumstances – was what was making me unhappy.
                                                                                         Vonette Bright

Our attitude can help us to thrive and succeed or fail. Having the right attitude is a choice, that sometimes I even forget I have the option to change it. We can all make the decision to be happy or to be angry and mad. Too often people spend their days worrying over the past, and not letting go of the bad times; take some advice from the Good News and thing (dwell) on these things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, of good repute… Find the positive in every a negative situation. Focus and seek God, stay in His Word, and prayer will help us all to have the right attitude.

Further Study of Attitude
Good Attitude displayed, Genesis 13:8-9
Childlike attitude, 1 Kings 3:7
“Cheer Up!” Psalm 31:24 (NIV) (KJV)
Serve with gladness,  Psalm 100:1-2
True humility, Luke 7:6-7
Servant attitude, 2 Corinthians 4:5
Keys to positive attitude, 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
“Not quarrelsome but kindly,” 2 Timothy 2:24 (NRSV) (NASB)
Negative thoughts, 1 Peter 2:1
Gentleness, reverence, 1 Peter 3:15 (CEV) (NIV)
… and so many other Scripture passages that can be studied – share your findings!

Be blessed, HL

Edited - Sorry, I had the wrong title on this post (was originally listed as Principle 7; 
although this is Principle 6).
