100% Attitude - The effect your attitude has on everything

20 replies
Your attitude will determine a lot, we've all heard the glass half full or glass half empty way off looking at things, both are the same thing, but are vastly different as well. You have the ability to transform your life and reach new heights of success and fulfillment. Whether at this moment in time your attitude is positive, negative or somewhere in the middle you can take control of your life and set yourself free! Everyone has potential, the unfortunate thing is that most people go through life and never realize or take advantage of this!

Firstly you must visualize what you want - you the dreams everyone has - unfortunately most people leave them as just that, dreams. The second thing that you must do is see yourself in your dream environment, and see yourself getting there. I can, I will and when I are the things you must say rather than the negative version I can't, I won't and if I! Don't worry if you fall into a more negative category - the good thing about attitude is that you can learn and train yourself to have a positive one given a bit of time and practice.

You've told yourself that it is going to happen and now must talk about it by doing this you are making yourself accountable and putting yourself under a little pressure to make it happen! If you dream is to be on Millionaire Street and you are currently in debt - you must realise that this dream is not going to happen overnight in may take a few years - you don't go around saying you are going to be a millionaire by next Thursday afternoon in three weeks time! Don't set unrealistic targets otherwise you may put yourself under undue stress and pressure to achieve, which can be detrimental to your cause.

Attitude isn't everything - it is simply the first thing! Remember it's going to be action that actually gets you there and the attitude will determine what pace that will be. You are the architect, the builder and the benefactor of all your life's endeavors. So when something doesn't go your way the first place to look is inwards. You must ask yourself what you could have done differently to have gotten a more favourable result, after this inward analysis is done then you look at some of the external issues that may have been amiss too.

Everyone has their fears; I don't mean things like scared of the dark or spiders etc. I am talking about fears to do with success, for example, it might be something that you haven't learnt to do yet, and you fear that you may fail. Remember that if you don't try you fail anyway, and if you do fail sometimes then success is that much sweeter because you actually had to get over obstacles to get to the end result.

Having a positive or optimistic attitude helps you to achieve more for yourself than a negative or pessimistic one. Visualize what you want, take action to make it happen, overcome any fears and keep plugging away, remember that tree that you see in your local park didn't get that big overnight. You can learn to train your mind, and over time you will learn how to develop and maintain a positive attitude.

        One should always have a positive attitude.
        Positive attitude has little to do with circumstance.
        Attitudes can change,just like circumstances.
        Attitudes can be improved,if we learn the secrete.
        Lastly,attitudes have a source for their strength.

    You are damn right. I used to have a bad attitude 3 years ago and believed that I would NEVER get internet marketing in my life. I thought that honestly it was for "other people". Now if you see my latest thread in the Mind Warrior forum, you will see what a change in attitude can possibly do for you. I am still crying from 12AM this morning and have a burning migraine now.

      Great post. We know that it isn't the event or situation but our perception of it that determines our attitude toward that event or situation. In other words, two persons can face the same situation or difficulty but have two vastly different attitudes toward the situation. How does this happen?

      At the risk of sounding a bit 'out there,' our diet, health, and overall well-being play one the biggest, if not the biggest, roles in determining how positive and optimistic our thinking is, regardless of the situation. Humans, in their natural state and on a biologically compatible diet, are designed to be goal-striving and target-achieving machines.

      I know so many extremely talented and capable persons who aren't performing to their full potential because on a chemical level their minds are hindered by poor diet or unhealthy lifestyles. This was most definitely the case with me when I first started building my holistic self-development business. If don't have the time to immediately effect a massive overhaul of your diet and life habits, then, at the very least, add an organic greens superfood supplement and fish oil to your day. Within a few weeks, you will feel, think, and perform like a superhero version of yourself. And you won't need caffeine to get work done.

      Again, I know digressed a bit with my advice here, but what good are success and money and if you don't have that all day feel-good energy and sense of well-being to fully enjoy them?

      Hope this helps a few or more of you.

    Ken Noton (the famous boxer) said his life changed when he read Think and Grow Rich. He said it allowed him to have his winning streak which included beating Ali. He said that when a person really believes he can... then he can.

      Earl Nightingale called 'attitude' the magic word, and I wrote about it as one the 4 magic words to success in my own book. It's the key to everything, and can be created by our own thoughts.

    I believe that the foundation of a healthy, positive life attitude is to be truly grateful for everything you have in your life RIGHT NOW!

    So many people seem to believe that their attitude will improve and their mindset will elevate when the circumstances of their lives get better. But the key to it all for me is to feel happy and satisfied in your life just where you are in this present moment. Look for the good! Train your focus to always see the richness and bounty of life and attract even greater potential and rewards.

    Really like what you have to say in this post. I agree with you that attitude is a huge part of what happens in our life. If we have a positive attitude and we feel good then good things are attracted to us, just try it and see.

    "The Difference Maker" by John Maxwell has a great point of view on attitude. Def. recommend this book.
    Attitude isn't everything, but it is the difference maker.
