Attitude building is one of the many truly
satisfying rewards Nature offers for exploring Her depths, and making
the decision to evermore work with Her by learning, understanding, and
implementing Her Ways. To achieve Good.
Attitude Building is the process we use to construct a Positive State Of Mind. A Positive Mindset is the greatest asset of every individual. Affiliated Positive Mindsets are the greatest asset of collective Humanity.
The foundation of a Healthy Attitude can be laid as soon as one has intellectually gathered the necessary fundamentals to do so. All available on this Website.
Attitude building begins with an appreciation of the immensity of your mind. Followed by an equal appreciation of the enormous power available to you as an individual, and the inestimable power available to affiliated mindsets. Humanity’s technical progress, via our Human Intelligence, is testimony to this phenomenon that can be employed for Good. Or for evil.
The following requirements are the three elements that constitute a Positive State Of Mind. These three elements have much in common, while remaining distinctly separate entities.
Building and development enable one to reach ever higher planes of Thought. Reaching these higher levels of Thought requires considerable, comprehensive, mental effort. Retaining those gains in mind expansion is achieved by maintaining the purposely positive nature of this worthy endeavor.
These three components, Building, Development, and Maintenance, are concomitant. That is, they are constant companions and always associated. For the perfectly Good reason that Attitude building is never finished. Once commissioned, these three overlap and intermingle for the rest of your life.
Personal Development is not an easy, or simple, landscape to traverse. We are hugely complex Beings.
Mind expansion is, at least initially, intellectually demanding. However, with the right mental approach, comprehension - despite this demanding nature – comes with pleasing regularity in direct proportion to effort expended in your own demands to know.
When exploring this not so simple landscape of your greatest asset, it is best that one appreciates the immensity of his or her Mind. And, at the same time recognizes the corresponding benefits to be had, relative to the depth of exploration.
A key element of exploiting that immensity is comprehending the fact that Nature not merely allows Humans to shape their own minds, for the better, She insists we do so.
Offering Her Universe as a Template to guide us, we can choose Harmony and Power, freely available via Her immutable Laws, and attained via attitude building.
An appreciation of the immensity of the Human mind – your mind – can be gained by studying the contents of this pdThinker Website. And conducting further research, at your leisure. That should be taken to mean at every opportunity you can find!!
Once this immensity - the sheer potential of your mind - is truly comprehended, it can be used as a reinforcing incentive to remind oneself why attitude building is well worth the effort. This comprehension is particularly useful in the absence of mental support from others.
While lack of mental support makes mind expansion more difficult, it
should not be condemned entirely. Being in this predicament provides a distinct and lasting benefit.
By going it alone, we learn another valuable lesson when we come out the other side of adversity. We are stronger in Spirit and Wisdom, due to our own unaided efforts. We realize Persistence pays, and pays handsomely.
Building a positive attitude takes Mental Muscle, much Knowledge, keen Understanding, and consistent Practice.
In the same manner that Building, Development, and Maintenance are concomitant, so too are Mental Muscle, Knowledge, Understanding and Practice.
In common with building physical muscle via physical exercise, Mental Muscle is increased and compounded by mental exercise. The more we use our Brain and Mind, the more useful - meaning powerful - it becomes. The immensity of the Human Mind renders it limitless.
The first step in building a Positive Mindset is to consciously commit to adopting a life-long, specific, approach to living your life. That commitment is to build a Purposely Positive Mindset. The mere making of this commitment brightens - and heightens - one’s outlook. You are off to a Good start. Nevertheless, the going can get tough. When it does we need to recall that . . .
Attempting to achieve any worthwhile purpose in a half-hearted manner sets the scene for eventual failure, or at best, grinding mediocrity. Building a Positive Attitude is special, and significant, in this respect. If one neglects or rejects wholehearted Commitment to constructing a Positive State Of Mind, that neglect will be evident in all other endeavors one undertakes.
Attitude building is established on a solid foundation of Knowledge, and executed via Thought based in consistently doing the Right Thing. As difficult as being consistent is, it is a key component of building a Positive Mindset.
As one initially struggles to assimilate the Principles that become second nature to a mature Positive Mindset, we will make Mistakes. If we fail to do the right thing, we must make amends. If we don’t make amends then we are building an unsound structure. There are no shortcuts.
As knowledge – and it’s requisite understanding – increases, one’s propensity towards mistakes decreases. Conscious Awareness kicks in. We begin to behave in a manner where our focus sharpens and we become acquainted with our Thoughts. We become consciously aware of the influence those Thoughts have on our potential actions. And - most importantly - we become cognizant of the consequences of those actions before we follow through.
As powerful as this state of being may be, it is not the culmination of developing a Positive Attitude. This is the beginning. It is easy to be impressed with our efforts at this early stage and consider oneself done. Caution is required, Humility is paramount to developing a Positive Attitude.
Notwithstanding his or her command of Natural Law, a Master does not know everything. Recognizing this drawback for what it is - a spur to greater effort - a Master is ever Purposely Learning. By definition, once under construction our mind begins to grow and expand. As comprehension of the Principles we are learning increases, expansion takes place. Knowledge begins to display energizing hints of usefulness.
By synthesizing new learning with one’s aggregate knowledge, we sense our attitude building efforts gathering momentum. The lights on our mental landscape are beginning to glow brighter.
Saliently, we glimpse flashes of an Undeveloped Mind.
Recognizing such a mind is composed of mere ignorance, we cast the ignorance aside, and see this immature mind as Sheer Potential.
When this watershed insight is gained, no obstacle will prevent you from keeping your Commitment to build a life-long Purposely Positive Mindset.
Yet . . .
One can still feel vaguely disturbed. This feeling should be seen as an ally. Ignorance frustrates Progress. An excellent reason to conduct our Positive Mind Building efforts, with the focus on understanding, within a bulwark of Humility.
Utilizing the Power of compounding knowledge, one puts it into practice by consistently exploiting his or her learning to attain equitable benefits. In the context of a Positive Mindset, the terms Benefits, Results, and Consequences, are synonymous. A Positive Mindset seeks Good only. Good Humans are the prime reason Humanity advances in the behavioral sense.
You Are Only As Good As Your Mindset, is a sobering axiom. It helps to remind us of the layered structure of Nature. When we fail, She is telling us there is something missing. A Positive State Of Mind acknowledges this and learns anew.
When we succeed, we should humbly acknowledge that the product of our mind can be improved, again and again, ad infinitum. In the interest of excellence, a Positive State Of Mind is ever developing.
Persistence is an integral element of such a state of mind.
The vicissitudes of Life affect every Human. It is doubtful that perfection is possible. We live, we learn, we evolve . . . sometimes - mostly actually - by making mistakes.
This is the University Of Hard Knocks. The very best Educational Institution on the Planet. No other learning institution offer such personalized attention.
If we cannot be perfect, we can most certainly excel. Excel in this Establishment of hard knocks and you will graduate with honors in the Discipline of Problem Solving.
That is what Attitude Building is all about - Solving Problems.
