Mental Outlook - Attitude

What is Attitude…?
Attitude is the way a person thinks about somebody or something and the way she behaves toward someone. It is her personal view or opinion of something. It also describes her general emotional approach to any person or situation.
Attitude is how you think and whether you lean toward the optimistic or pessimistic.

And what is positive mental attitude?
It is defined as a constructive response to stress and the ability to deal effectively with unavoidable problems.

A person's mental outlook is shaped by...
  • Influence and association.
Your models of the world shape how you view things or events. The people you associate with have an effect on the person you become.
  • Beliefs.
Belief is a primary component of your mannerism. It is the foundation for achieving and maintaining a positive mental outlook.
You see the world the way you are or should be. Your beliefs about others reflect back at you. If your belief about the world is good, you will obtain good results. You need to believe and hope for the best and then move toward the best.
  • Thoughts.
The way you think has become habitual. Your approach in life that directs your performance is simply from your habits of thought.
Everything that is happening outside is a reflection of your state of consciousness and your inner map. Your behavior is a mirror of your thinking.
  • Expectations.
Your expectations determine your opinion about something or someone. A person with positive expectancy will look for the benefit or advantage from an obstacle or setback.
Your beliefs about possibilities affect your mindset and your response. You get what you expect from life. When you have positive expectations, your mind will direct you to find the solutions.
  • Self-talks.
How you talk to yourself makes a difference in how you respond to situations and people.

"Being "positive" or "negative" or "optimistic" or "pessimistic" displays an attitude" – Dr Harry Adler

The right mentality makes the difference between staying stuck or reaching maximum effectiveness.

You can strengthen it through awareness and the right kind of mental practice.
Your attitude about what you see lies ahead of you will determine how much effort and commitment that you will put in.
