ItudeSkills......the power of "tude words"
We cannot do what we use to do
and expect different results!
As we increase our intuitive awareness of who we are, we can further realize and understand better, the“i” .... which is defined as personal motivation, or our self worth.
With a workshop on the use of “tude” words in our life situations, (examples: attitude, gratitude...), we can visualize and further define our beliefs, habits and activity. This realization gives us strength and guidance for a perceived or required change.
Futhermore, with this improved awareness and confidence, we can build our experienced, or acquire new “Skills”. Directionally, we can quickly achieve significant personal and professional change, with a solid escalation.
Confidentally, by defining and accepting responsibility, starting right now, and intentional use of our intuitive thinking, we could enjoy increased self esteem and prosperity.
In using itudeSkills interactive programs, we can discover the opportunity to release, realize, clearify change and broaden our possibilities. This all part of understanding our Life Purpose.

- Sikken Attitude:
They do not form overnight but rather, throughout the course of one's life. Moreover, certain attitudes create a negative impact to one's life and may even cause it to fall apart. This is why it is an important task for each person to help themselves take on the proper attitude direction.
Attitude means a way of looking at things or point of view. Attitude is a reflection, our attitude to life determines life's attitude to us. This simply means we shape our own lives. Successful people have a good attitude towards themselves, they expect to succeed more than they fail.
A practical guide to gratitude
(so you can see and think differently)
In a stuck moment, it’s hard to see positive forces when obstacles are blaring and fears are looming. This is a good time to be grateful. Not grateful
for what has us stuck, but appreciating what doesn’t. Gratitude helps us see our situation in a way that can lessen panic and open up our thinking to new solutions.
Thing is, people aren’t hardwired to be grateful. And, like any skill worth having, gratitude requires practice. There are three stages, says Dr. Robert Emmons, author of "Thanks! How Practicing Gratitude Can Make You Happier": recognizing what we’re grateful for, acknowledging it, and appreciating it. Simple, right? And the benefits of practicing gratitude can be life altering.
Gratitude puts situations into perspective. When we can see the good as well as the bad, it becomes more difficult to complain and stay stuck.
Gratitude helps us realize what we have. The awareness of what we're grateful for can lessen our tendency to want more all the time.
Gratitude makes us happier. Gratitude strengthens relationships, improves health, reduces stress, and, in general, makes us happier, according to Dr. Emmons, who explains his research in this video.
9 ways to cultivate gratitude
1 Notice your day-to-day world from a point of gratitude and be amazed at all the goodness we take for granted.
2 Keep a gratitude journal. All it requires is noting one or more things you are grateful for on a daily basis. No fancy notebook, no computer program required.
3 If you identify something or someone with a negative trait (the cold conference room), switch it in your mind to a positive trait (the conference room with a great view).
4 Gratitude requires humility, which the dictionary defines as being "modest and respectful." Explore where it fits in your life.
5 Give at least one compliment daily, whether directly to a person or by sharing your appreciation of something ("I love how quiet it is in the morning, don’t you?").
6 When you find yourself in a bad situation ask: What can I learn? When I look back on this, without emotion, what will I be grateful for?
7 Vow to not complain, criticize, or gossip for a week. If you slip, rally your willpower and keep going. Notice how much energy you were spending on negative thoughts.
8 Sound genuinely happy to hear from the people who call you on the phone. Whether they respond with surprise or delight, they'll feel valued.
9 Join a cause that's important to you. Donate money, time, or talent. By getting involved, you’ll better appreciate the organization — and it will appreciate you more, too.
The power of paying a compliment
When Mark Twain said, “I can live two months on a good compliment,” he only told half the story. While the person who receives the praise enjoys feeling noticed and valued (and is motivated to do more of the same), the giver can also bask in the connection. With every compliment given, a bond is strengthened, trust is built, and conversation encouraged. Potent stuff!
Here are five dos and don’ts to make the most of giving and receiving of admiration:
1.) DO be genuine. False praise is easy to spot, and it undermines your trustworthiness.
2.) DON’T give back-handed compliments, such as “You throw a ball well
for a girl.”
3.) DO be as specific as possible. Vague: “I like how you redid your living room.” Specific: “I like the color choice of your living room walls. It’s a perfect accent with the rug and drapes.”
4.) DON’T brush off a compliment given to you. It’s like returning a gift.
5.) DO smile and say thank-you when you receive a compliment.
