Professional Attitude

It is the attitude that since I now know all there is to know, you could not possibly add to my knowledge and who do you think you are to try? It is not only experience that creates this attitude, it can be money, a badge, a uniform, a title. The whole attitude is one of fear and resentment. As though if you could contribute to my knowledge or understanding, I would have done all this for nothing. I would be a failure. This is not acceptable.

Prayer and blessing will do more to solve the problem than reason or argument. The person with the professional attitude does not seek advice and will not accept it. You might think professional attitudes are more prevalent among members of professions. You would be correct. That is where the professional attitude originated, but it is in danger of becoming universal as unwitting people think, if I had more confidence, I would be like that. They get a little more confidence and guess what?

In truth there is no professional attitude to be found among true professionals, so the attitude is a wannabe giveaway. Whenever you see a demonstration of this attitude, you can say, there is a person who prefers pretending to be a professional to being one. I don’t claim to be a professional anything, so I am less susceptible to the delusion. How about you? Have you been taught by well meaning souls that appearances are everything? The message is in the churches, on the television and trumpeted by all major media in support of corporate agendas and sales, sales, sales. You would be in professional company. Nations are run on appearances.

So the next time it seems to you it would be good to appear a little more professional, just choose to be a little more professional. The world will bless your effort.
