Building Positive Attitude

                                        Steps to Attitude Change 


Step 1:Change Focus; Always Look for Positive
We should always seek for good in people, things,environment and condition instead of what is wrong or negative. Generally, due to particular conditioning or by nature, we are accustomed in finding fault and looking for what is wrong and we often forget to see the positive side or picture. 
Once, Andrew Carnegie (millionaire), was asked how he dealt with people. He simply replied,"Dealing with people is a lot like digging for GOLD:When you go digging for an ounce of gold, you have to move tons of dirt. But when you go digging,you don't go looking for the dirt, you go looking for the gold". His reply got a very important message. Thought sometimes it may not be apparent there is something positive in every person and every situation so far. We also need to dig deeply to look for the positive. Its something known as selection in what we want to perceive or what is our focus, looking for gold or dirt. Even in paradise, fault finders can find faults.


Be an Optimist-- Its not an easy task to be optimist or positive thinker but the following tips can help.
i) Be so strong and determined that nothing can disturb your peace of mind. Talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person you meet, every time. Look at the sunny side of everything. Think only of the best, work only for the best and expect only the best. Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future. Give everyone a smile. Spend time on improving yourself that you have no time left to criticize others. Be too big for worry and too noble for anger. 
Note: Looking for the positive does not necessarily mean overlooking faults.


Step 2: Making Habit of Doing it Now
Another big negative energy which we mostly are familiar is the habit of procrastination. And procrastination leads to negative attitude. Actually, the habit of procrastination fatigues you more than the effort it takes to do it. And if we want to make positive attitude, get into the habit of living in the present and doing it now. Just give 100% is whatever you do, utilizing the present to the fullest. phrase "just do it" what the super famous sports wear production company NIKE believes in is so powerful but also touch to follow, but to build positive attitude, we need to follow this phrase.


Step 3: Developing Attitude of gratitude
Count your blessings not the troubles, because there is not even a single one who does not have any troubles in life but all we need to do is go for blessings and achievements we attain instead of problems. So, whatever be the condition, we should always thankful for positive aspect of life. But counting blessings does not necessarily mean complacency or pride or self-satisfaction. many of our blessings are hidden treasures so we should be able to recognize them and count them.


Step 4: Building Positive Self-Esteem
Self-Esteem is the way we feel about ourselves. So,if we feel good within, our performance goes up and our relationships improve both at home or at work. So to build up self-esteem positively, again all we need to think positively and look greener side of everything.
