Keith Harrel has categorically said that one of the fundamental things that every person who wants to improve his or her life should work on is his or her attitude. Because, your attitude determines so much about how your life and how far you will go in life. Jim Rohn intoned that if you want to succeed in life, you need to work harder on yourself than you do on your job. This is to make you become better and of more value which also affects whatever you are involved in.
Your attitude is like the engine that runs the car. The more finely tuned that engine is, the better the car will run. The same is true with your life. If you keep your attitude up, if you make it fantastic, you will see so much about your life open right up and flourish.
Attitude is not predisposed or genetic. Attitude is usually acquired or developed. That is why William James, a great psychologist-philosopher said ‘The greatest discovery of my generation is that people can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind’. One of the greatest realisation of our time is that everyone has the potential to improve the quality of their personal and professional lives. That is why humans are potentially created to be progressive. But you must be willing to acquire the skills that will guide you to a place of self discovery, where you can then tap into the power of your positive attitude. You may not be able change your height or your body type, but you can change your attitude. That is why each of us has the power to develop and maintain a positive attitude that works for us, that improves the quality of our lives and enables us to accomplish our lifes’ objectives. Keith Harrel advised that, ‘your attitude should be an indication of where you desire to go in life and not a reflection of what you have been through’.
Thus, no matter your age, your current position, or station in life, your gender, or marital status, a positive attitude can make an incredible difference in your life and in the lives of others. Attitude is the foundation and support of everything you do, a key element in the process of controlling your destiny and achieving mastery in your personal and professional life. The most beneficial change that can turn one’s life around is a change for positive attitude. But if you want an attitude that works for you, that improves the quality of your life and enables you to accomplish your dreams, you have to work at it. You can’t just sit around and wait for a positive attitude to come over you.
