Are You Watching Your Attitude Indicator?

If you have ever seen the inside of an airplane cockpit, you know that there is an instrument panel.

The instrument panel contains many different gauges and switches. One of these is the Attitude Indicator.

You may be asking “What purpose does an attitude indicator serve?”

The main purpose of the attitude indicator is to tell the pilot the orientation of the airplane relative to earth. Whether the nose is up or the nose is down.

This is important knowledge to have because it affects the performance of the airplane.

If the nose is up, the plane slows and starts to ascend. Nose down and the plane increases in speed and descends.

Could you imagine what would happen if the pilot did not know whether the nose was up or down?

Just like the airplane, YOU need to have an attitude indicator.

Your attitude makes the biggest difference in the way you view your life.

Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
— Winston Churchill

It will affect the choices that you make, the opportunities that you see, and the direction that your life will head.

Is your attitude indicator pointed nose down?

  • You see all of the negative in your life
  • Everything is out of your control
  • Everyone is against you?

If your attitude indicator is pointed down, you are heading for a crash. You need to pull up and correct your attitude.

Check to see if you are going nose up:

  • You see the world as a happy place
  • You see the good in others
  • You see good possibilities
  • You know things work together for your good

Take a moment today and reflect on the position of your attitude indicator. Do you need to correct it?

If so, begin to raise your nose and increase your altitude. Begin to soar today!

Choosing to be positive and having a grateful attitude is going to determine how you’re going to live your life.
— Joel Osteen
