Who hasn’t heard this cliché; Attitude is Everything!?
How is this true? Why then does the word attitude without a qualifying word in front of it, such as great, brilliant or wonderful etc, usually have a negative condition? I think that when most people hear the word attitude that automatically triggers the thought of words such as bad, poor or some other word like them.
Merrian Webster defines the word attitude like this; 1.the arrangement of the parts of the body; posture 2. a mental position with regard to fact or state; feeling or emotion toward a fact or state and 3. An organismic state of readiness to respond in a characteristic way to a stimulus (as an object, concept, or situation).
Studying the definition of a word can explain and give you a much deeper understanding to the Why’s and How’s.
Who hasn’t seen a person with a poor posture and what does it trigger in your mind? In contrast what does a person with a straight back and an elegant fluid moving posture. These upright people are usually smiling and pleasant to be around and are very drawing or attractive we say. Now, with the further study we have done on the word attitude we now have a better understanding of exactly what is at the core of these postures.
We also often know how another person will respond to certain things even before they respond because of their habitual attitude. Unless they respond completely different than we expected them to, to which we respond, wow, that was completely out of character for that person.
So then since the attitude is so important to how others perceive us, and we now know that ours is predictable by those who know us, do you think that this predictable behavior could have anything to do with the results that we are getting in our, relationships, finances or our health? The answer to this question when it comes with the awareness that we have just laid out is an obvious… Yes, Yes, Yes our life results are directly tied to our attitude!
The attitude is everything and it cuts like a two edged sword for good or bad depending on our habitual responses. The good news is that your attitude can be gained to be good and here are some tips to turn your attitude to the uplifting positive one that everyone admires!
First you need to know where your are at on this journey. Remember this is your personal journey, no one else’s.
