Do you ever find yourself battling your attitude?
Many people have issues with maintaining a proper attitude. In this article, we are going to take a closer look at how our position affects us.
What are your plans for taking care of your health? There is going to be a need to do something that you do not find pleasant.
The attitude with which you approach these things is going to be a Hugh factor in the success you have.
This factor is real for any other area of life when we think of doing something; it does not matter what that something is.
What matters is if we can see that it is possible to accomplish getting it done.
That is my definition of a “Can-Do Attitude.” It knows that you can do it! Especially when the task at hand is enormous or is something that has been very challenging for a long time.
It is not difficult to stay with the status-quote and go through life without being challenged in any way.
There are other situations that we find ourselves in the opposite predicament, and it seems like the problem is much larger than we can handle.
That is when the “Can-Do” part of your attitude is going kick into gear. You have to train your thinking to look for the solution and not focus on the issue at hand.
Sometimes it takes extra effort to push through the obstacles that are in the way, or just changing your perspective a little, and another solution will present itself.
Synonyms – Can DO Attitude
Attitude: defined as a settled way of thinking or feeling about someone or something, typically one that is reflected in a person’s behavior.
Whether the thinking is positive or negative, that definition applies to someone’s view and how they are going to approach a problem, it can go either way!
It depends on how the individual perceives the issue at hand, and how they decide to deal with it in their minds, is what is going to determine the way they look at things.
Peoples approach to doing a necessary task when it is not liked. That is so important to recognize; we are better at seeing this in other people and not so good at seeing it in ourselves.
Everyone has different levels of this self-inspection capabilities, but we can all choose to focus on learning how to do this better.
This ability will enable us to use the synonyms of what it means to have the Can-Do Attitude naturally flowing up from within ourselves.
The spirit of the heart when it has the right attitude will keep our point of view in the proper perspective to get the job done.
Recently this came to mind when teaching my son how to work on a task. In cleaning out the filing cabinet, there was a rather large pile of papers with personal information that needed to be shredded.
While he was working on getting the task of shredding the papers done, he keeps acting like it was the hardest thing in the world to do.
That is to be expected because he is eight years old, but when his vision of the task changed and he could see the end in sight his whole attitude changed and he started having fun doing the job.
Importance of Positive Attitude Work
The lesson for my son is a small one, but it is touching on something of a more significant issue.
That more significant issue is a work ethic and the importance of working on having a positive attitude about getting things done correctly.
In psychology, people’s attitude is a psychological construct; we tend to speak about it like it is separate from the person, but it is very much part of who that person is.
People’s attitude is complex and acquired through their experiences, the environment that they are around will influence how their future position will develop.
Attitude is something that the individual can work on no matter how the outside environment is influencing them.
While it is preferred to have a supportive environment to nurture a positive attitude, people can choose not to allow adverse environments to drag them down.
The battle is not going to be easy for those faced with adverse environments, and it is going to require additional tools to cope with the negative pull.
An excellent example of this type of battle is how we allow society to affect our eating habits. When we are in a restaurant, it is harder to make the right choices because of the expectations of the surrounding people.
That is something that a person has to equip themselves to deal with making the right choice. First, they are going to need to identify the issue and then find a solution that will work for them and get along with the other people they are around.
Remember that these types of works are on the individual and others are not going to be aware of the issue unless you share it with them. Some will be supportive and others not supportive at all.
Can DO Attitude Poster
How can people help themselves to remember that they are working on improving their attitude?
One option is to make yourself a Can DO Attitude Poster.
A Poster can help to remind you of what your goals are and will keep it in front of you.
We hear many people teaching the positive declarations’ doctrine that says that you need to speak out loud the affirmations and then the universe will line up for you.
That is a very narcissistic view of the world and is not going to help people to get a better attitude if they are expecting the thing to go right for them.
Better to expect everything to go wrong and know that you are going to have to work out some problems every day.
Being adequately equipped to handle the adversities in life are going to allow you to maintain the right attitude even when things do not go your way!
Having a quiet time in the mornings and meditating on some good thoughts and good advice can be very beneficial to someone as they face the obstacles in their lives.
Can DO Attitude Quotes
Using famous quotes is an excellent way to make your list of quotes that work for you.
Better to take the famous quotes and paraphrase them in your own words. That will allow you to make it your own.
Here is an example:
Generally, men attract to themselves that which they are, and that may not be what they desire!
This example is my take on the following quote:
“Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.” by James Allen
There is nothing wrong with using famous quotes as they are if it speaks to you.
For this post here is a good one:
“Your problem isn’t the problem; it’s your attitude about the problem.” by Ann Brashares
“Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” by John Wooden.
Embrace the things in life that cause you problems and look at everything as an opportunity for learning and your attitude is going to be better.
When you master maintaining the right attitude then lives curve balls do not bother you as much. You are going to have to work out issues daily.
Knowing that you are going to have to address problems and teaching yourself to smile at them, will equip you for the trials in life.
Hope that this post helps someone who is struggling with keeping their attitude in check and on the right path.
