wylona - that is a really insightful point of view: sometimes, attitude is more about our true inner-selves than it is about being either positive or negative: again, I really enjoyed reading your point of view on attitude.
@wylona - that is a really insightful point of view: sometimes, attitude is more about our true inner-selves than it is about being either positive or negative: again, I really enjoyed reading your point of view on attitude.I have to admit, I struggle with this. Often I'll try to remain positive but then think, "Ok, but is that how I REALLY feel?" If the answer is "no," then I get that uncomfortable feeling that I'm just lying to myself and not facing the truth.
I like to practice mindful meditation and that helps, but as any expert on the subject will say, it's a lifelong learning experience.
This can likewise be known as the behavioral segment and focuses on people acting a specific way towards something, for example, 'we better keep those lethargic young people out of the library,' or 'I can't hold up to kiss that child.'
A good attitude is key in many situations. Many times everyday life can become more joyous if you are grateful for what you have and focus on your blessings instead of focusing on things that are not so great.
There is an old song that talks about accentuating the positive. I find that song to have a lot of wisdom in it.
I have been in some very trying and dire situations. I've found that my attitude towards what was going on helped me and mine a great deal, whereas people who were around us who were focusing on all the bad that was happening were not accomplishing what they could have been accomplishing to make the situation better.
I have friends who always focus on what's wrong, how bad things are, how dumb they think someone is, what this person is doing wrong, what that person is doing wrong. How right they are. Their attitude towards life-in-general seems kind of miserable.
I think a good attitude can change things. Not a pollyannaish pie-in-the-sky type of attitude, just a healthy attitude towards life.
I have an acquaintance who loves to say stuff like did you see on the news this morning where so and so got stabbed? Did you see in the news this morning where so and so got raped? Did you see where blahblahblah blahblah blahblah??
Another acquaintance always complains about her husband; he doesn't make enough money, he doesn't clean up enough around the house, he doesn't this, he doesn't that... like she's perfect or something. Attitude!!
That's very true. Everything begins in the mind. As Dr. Napoleon Hill put it in his book "Think and Grow Rich", "whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, man can achieve". In terms of having a good-looking body, first you have to be able to visualize yourself having a good-looking body, then believe that it's possible for you to have a good-looking body, after which you can begin to work towards building a good-looking body.

I think your attitude determines who you are, determines what you can achieve and what you can't. For example a person who is very positive and thinks he can do anything well he will have a higher chance at succeeding to that person who is negative.
