Attitude is Everything

Understanding the power of attitude is the first step to being in control of everything else that could impact on you and people around you.

Keith Harrell once said something powerful which was this, the most valuable asset you can posses is a positive attitude. Attitude is one of the most noticeable things in an individual. If someone has a positive attitude towards themselves it’s most likely they have a positive attitude towards others. However if a person is negative towards themselves you will also notice how negative they are towards others. They are usually arrogant and very selfish at times. But the best thing about attitude is that if it’s bad it can be changed.

The power in exercising your attitude is through action.

Choosing to be accountable in your life is very important. For instance if you wanted to be a doctor and your mom dices that you should be a teacher because it will be cheaper for her to pay for your tuition. Most people give up and live up their lives blaming their parents for not allowing them to become what they aspired to be in their lives. Being accountable simply means you became responsible for your own life. Instead of sitting down and watching your own dream down the drain you would go on and register for a relevant course which would relate to a medicine trade but as cheap as your teaching course, once you are well established and have a job you can carry on to portray your dream. If you are searching for an attitude that is productive for you, choose to have a positive attitude.

“What a mind can conceive, it will achieve” – Henry Ford

Meaning the only person that determines whether you achieve something or not is you.

Sometimes you get people telling you what you can’t achieve because they don’t see themselves achieving it. What I can tell is if you want something you go get it and do whatever it takes to get it.

Getting rid of your bad attitude is the third step into building up a positive attitude. It is never easy to understand why other individuals have bad attitudes. But we come from different backgrounds and there a various reasons why that may be. However having self awareness is the ability to recognize our feelings as they overcome us may be the best way to dictate our attitudes. Knowing yourself and understanding what motivates you is the best way of knowing how to control yourself, that reason that being is because a good attitude begins with having self awareness.

Changing your bad attitude for good is the fourth and final stage to developing and having control of your life. Some feelings wash over us and are quickly absorbed, but now and then it strikes like a lightning bolt and burns deep in our souls. Things like loosing a loved one, breaking up with a partner, getting fired from work, an attack on your character – these encounters would easily make us sad and angry.

To have the best you need to let go of good. This means your hands are not big enough to carry good and best at the same time. You have to let go of one to get the other. Same thing as your emotions. Learning to trade maybe the most mentally challenging things one has to deal with simply because of the fear of loss that drives most of us. If you have a negative encounter it means, the worst has happened. Now tell yourself since I already have this negative attitude let me explore my other options and do what you always wanted to do.

Hope this article helps assist improve on the way you see your self because your attitude is everything. With a positive frame of mind your success is inevitable!.
