Your attitude is the emotion that you associate with any given situation, person or task. What do you enjoy and what tasks don’t you like? Who feels great to be around, and who drags you down? What situations empower you, and when do you feel powerless?
These are your attitudes, your emotions toward these aspects of your life.
When you associate negative emotions with something, you have a bad attitude about it. Our associations are automatic emotional reactions to external stimuli. Once you observe your automatic associations in yourself, you can reprogram yourself to react differently.
