Our attitude towards life will determine what we get from life. Our attitude towards work and learning will determine what we can do well.
William James a Harvard professor said “the greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitude of mind"
First let's look at our attitude towards ourselves. We take ourselves for granted. we believe that other people can do things that we cannot. Many people oppose change yet change in life is the one thing on which we can absolutely count.
We need to train our attitude day by day. Take a look at successful people in every occupation. You will find that no matter what field they work in they all have one thing in common . They have a good attitude towards themselves, they believe they can accomplish and as a result they do remarkable things. They are called successful, fortunate, gifted, lucky. They are frequently no better able than the people around them but they do have a good attitude. They do expect more good out of life than bad. They expect to succeed rather than fail.
If you want something out of your life make up your mind that there are more reasons why you should get it rather than you shouldn't.
Go after it, strive for it, save for it, ask for it and nine times out of 10 you will get it. Our environment is really a mirror of our attitude. If we don't like our environent we have to change our attitude first, the world plays no favorites. It is our attitude that determines our lives. Studies of thousands of successful people show that they radiate confidence. They expect success and this is why they get success. You can spot these people by the way they look and act.
In five years or less you can get right to the top of your present field by adopting the right attitude. Start today by simply acting as though you are already the successful person you want to be. Act, look and feel successful. Actions trigger feelings just as feelings trigger actions. Here is a test that will prove this to you. If you carry out the following instructions for the next 30 days your attitude towards life will be dramatically improved.
Act toward the world and everyone you meet as though you were already the person you want to be. If you want success act as though you already have it. If you want admiration from others give this admiration to others. The most important person on earth to any person is himself , so for the next 30 days act as though everyone you meet is the most important person on earth (remember he is to himself )
You should do this for two reasons
1) This is the way you should treat other human beings
2) It will help you form a habit that will work with amazing results.
Have you noticed that in large well-run companies the people at the top are nice people, easy to talk to and they are courteous to you?
This is because they have the right attitude, this is why they are at the top. When a person carries out this instruction he immediately puts himself in the right company i. e.in the top 5% of the people amongst those who will be most successful, he has made himself an embodiment all of that which he seeks. He has made the mold in which to fashion the final form he wants to be. The things that person would have and do wi9ll come to him. It's called “the law of attraction"Everyone in the world wants to be and needs to be loved and respected. They will give their love, friendship and their business to those who will give them what they want most, a feeling of importance.
It is our attitude at the beginning of a task which will determine its outcome.
It is our attitude towards life that will determine life's attitude toward us.
We are interdependent, it is impossible to succeed without others.
It is our attitude towards others which will determine their attitude towards us.
Before a person can achieve the life he wants he must become that kind of person.
Your mind can only hold one thought at a time, as there is nothing to be gained by being negative- be positive.
Everyone craves to be needed, give them this feeling.
Don't talk about your problems or your health unless it is good.
Radiate the confidence of someone who knows where they are going and good things will start happening to you.
For next 30 days treat everyone as though they were the most important person alive.
