Attitudes

Posted by iBlog on August 20, 2007

Attitude is defined as the position or bearing as indicating action, feeling, or mood. And it is our actions or feelings which determine the actions or feelings of others towards us and which control, our success or failure.

Without an image of the mind, your understanding of attitude will very likely be distorted. That does not mean you will not be successful in life. You could have a great attitude and become highly successful, yet, not understand exactly what attitude is and how it has affected your success in life. A person in this position is referred to as an unconscious competent. Since their success has its foundation in their attitude and they do not have a clear understanding of what attitude is, they would be unable to explain their cause of success to another person, possibly even a loved one, this are not uncommon.

Our attitude toward life which will determine life’s attitude towards us. Everything we say or do will cause some effect. Each of us shapes their own life, and the shape of it is determined by our attitude. What we receive from life, what we accomplish, or fail to accomplish, is due in large measure to our overall attitude. Human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind.

Is easy saying this, human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. It is not easy, it can’t be, the answer is obvious, they don’t know how. A change in attitude will change your life, is all you require. The conscious mind is the part of you that thinks. You can accept or reject any idea. No person or circumstance can cause you to think about thoughts or ideas you do not choose. Because the thoughts you choose will eventually determine your results in life.

To develop a good attitude toward the world in general, each of us must first develop a good attitude toward ourselves. WE CAN’T GIVE TO OTHERS SOMETHING WE DON’T HAVE. So it’s the attitude we take toward ourselves which determines our attitude toward others. Which radiates to the world around us.

When you see someone with a poor attitude toward others, you can be sure they have a poor attitude toward themselves. They don’t like themselves, they’re unhappy about something. A happy person reflects their happiness in their attitudes. A person with a poor attitude most of the time is unhappy and frustrated most of the time, and they’re a human magnet for unpleasant experiences. When they come, as they must because of their attitude, they reinforce their poor attitude, thereby bringing more problems. But for the person with a good attitude, the same principle holds true in reverse. Expecting the best, that’s what they get most of the time.

Why would a person persist in a poor attitude, expecting the worst???? We are so familiar with ourselves that we tend to take ourselves for granted. We tend to minimize what we can accomplish the goals we can reach. We believe others can reach heights which we cannot. We tend to overlook the fact that there is enormous undeveloped potential within each of us, a great reserve of talent and ability which we habitually fail to see.

Human beings living narrow, darkened, frustrated lives, living defensively, simply because they take a defensive, doubtful attitude toward themselves and as a result, toward life in general. Attitude is the reflection of a person.

No matter what a person does, whenever you find a person doing an outstanding job and getting outstanding results, you’ll find a person with a good attitude. These people take the attitude toward themselves that they can accomplish what they set out to accomplish, that achievement is the natural order of things that there’s no good reason on earth why they can’t be competent and successful. They have a healthy attitude toward themselves and as a result, toward life and the things they want to accomplish.

Because of this, they achieve things and come to be called successful and outstanding. They are no more brilliant or talented than the majority of the people by whom they’re surrounded, but they have the right attitude.

The world we’ve created around ourselves, is really a mirror of our attitudes. If we don’t like our enviroment, we can change it by changing our attitudes. The world plays no favorites, it’s impersonal, it doesn’t care who succeeds and who fails, nor does it care whether we change or not. Our attitude toward life doesn’t affect the world and the people in it nearly as much as it affects us.

The jobs which are held though hated, the marriages which are tolerated but unhappy, the relationships of two people who fail to understand one another, all because of people who are waiting for the world and others to change toward them, before they’ll change.

I remain.
