It is very important to generate a good attitude, a good heart, as much as possible. From this, happiness in both the short term and the long term for both yourself and others will come.
I have found that keeping a good attitude in my type of work is the hardest thing to do. The difficult clients color the whole day even when I have very nice clients. The reason for this is I am always shocked and upset why people would be cruel to me when they are asking for my help.
I realized I was doing this recently when I had a client who had always been nice make some comments that did not specify what he was talking about and I assumed it meant me. I listened to a webinar on the problems that healers have with being respected for their work. It was about being paid the money you are worth. I am worth a great deal more than what I ask as a donation from others. I actually stay and work with the person through their problems. I show compassion and kindness to others.
I share part of my experience with them to let them know they can over come the challenges that they have in their lives. I deal with people who are scared, traumatized, and need guidance. I do my best to be kind to them and to do no harm if I can not help them.
Yet my attitude has not been the best because the website consistently gets rude people who treat me improperly. I have to realize that the 2 or 3 people a month who do this to me are not worth the reactions I have trying to prevent others like them from contacting me. I instead plan to focus on the good people and remember these others are not a majority.
