There are two things we should fully comprehend about authentic attitude change. The first is that, contrary to popular opinion, it is entirely possible. The second, and of uttermost importance, is this - to make the change happen, it requires the full permission, and absolute involvement, of the holder.
This condition of permission and involvement is a product of Autonomy. And it applies whether one is going it alone, or is fortunate enough to have genuine support.
Allowing for, and maintaining, autonomy, will be the greatest challenge to genuine supporters, and is crucial to success.
The attitude of an individual resides in their mind. To change an attitude, a mind change is necessary. A mind can only be changed permanently by it’s owner.
This type of mind change most often requires a good deal of time, intellectual rigor, and applied intelligence.
Nevertheless, when intense desire is present, change can be instantaneous. The greater the desire for change, the quicker change will come about.
Attitude change is neither easy nor simple. For permanent, regression free, changes to take effect, fresh, enlightened understanding is paramount.
As can be observed, in perhaps the most public scientific battle ever, the Absolute Truth is an essential element of attitude change, if one is to extract value from fresh knowledge.
The progress enabling benefits of Truth, emanating from enlightening knowledge acquisition, must be appreciated to ensure one has the staying power to follow through.
Otherwise, the price Nature demands for serious mind change, may appear to be too high and all effort abandoned.
Analogy wise when purchasing a desired item, one must be aware of quality pertaining to any given thing, to recognize that quality’s value, related to price.
When quality recognition is absent, price becomes the primary purchase value guideline. The moment we recognize quality, and the value for money that quality represents, we are less inclined to protest about price.
In this same fashion, the extraordinary benefits of a Positive Attitude are simply not visible to a negative leaning mind.
An appreciation of the rewards on offer, that a genuine Positive State Of Mind delivers, is imperative to attaining that state.
With an enlightened understanding targeted towards building a positive mindset, the aforementioned time, effort, and intelligence expenditure, in exchange for a positive mindset, becomes the indisputable bargain of a lifetime.
A bargain that is composed of the measured cost of discovering the legitimate potential deep within the real you.
Included in this bargain of a lifetime are the means to exploit your potential, and the instrumentality to execute that exploitation.
A bargain constituting a How To package available in no other manner.
Knowledgeable Support, offering genuine empathy, understanding, and autonomy, is highly desirable, but not essential, to effect attitude change.
Working within these parameters,one can either self administer, or seek help and support of a knowledgeable other. Whatever course of redress is chosen, it should be a genuine choice of the afflicted individual’s own volition.
Recognizing the root cause of a wrong attitude indicates how one should approach the remedy. Is it Rebellion, or Resignation. The treatment is the same, but understanding the root cause determines the empathy extended. Both rebellion and resignation are destructive symptoms of poor Self Esteem, but render distinctly different consequences.
When one person seeks anther's help, Empathic Listening is fundamental to determining and defining the cause of distress. Empathic listening is equally essential for building affinity and trust.
Incidentally, this is true of any type of help sought.
One’s state of mind is the overarching faculty wherein one’s principles
and values, in other words, your Inner Beliefs, are developed as you
work on shaping the real you. In the process identifying your abilities
Conversely, one can neglect to investigate, and cultivate, his or her potential. Abandoning it to languish under the onslaught of uninvited negative thought. Thus allowing a compounding and entrenching, energy sapping, negative state of mind. A sad state within which cowers a future destroying negative attitude.
It is here, in this overarching faculty of your ambient state of mind, that your Attitude, be it Positive or negative, is determined and executed. Developing a positive attitude towards life is crucial to attaining a Positive State Of Mind. Which in turn is fundamental to maintaining a Positive Attitude.
Maintaining a Positive State Of Mind, hence positive attitude, is the key to Self Reliance, Self Actualization, and building awesome Problem Solving Skills.
The prime goal of attitude change is to attain a Positive State Of Mind. This is the umbrella under which Good Thought is maintained. Once established, this faculty is where all thought is examined, processed, justified, and when desired, sanctioned.
Whatever thoughts one sanctions, are revealed by one’s words and deeds.
A Positive State Of Mind is the faculty where negative Thoughts can be rationally examined. Once a Thought is recognized as destructive, or even if merely counter productive, it can be discarded. Or better still, forever banished.
A positive state of mind can process negative Thought, for the purpose of evaluation, before discarding such Thought, with deliberation and equanimity.
Conversely, a negative state of mind, while holding the power to execute endless chaos, has little capacity for evaluation of any worth.
In general, your Values influence your approach, that is, your response, to the vagaries of Life. In particular, an individual's inner beliefs can be molded to configure an impenetrable barrier to the temptation to indulge in evil.
When this barrier is in place, one sees evil as an entirely counter productive and undignified waste of time. This insight emphasizes the pivotal to success nature of understanding, and purposely molding, one’s inner beliefs.
A word of caution is appropriate
at this point. A positive state of mind produces euphoria, which itself
must be directed to productive ends. In the early stages of personal
development one can be tempted to share their newfound enthusiasm by endeavoring to recruit or convert others to the cause. Not everyone welcomes the opportunity to expand their mind. Rejection can happen.
Being rejected by another at this early stage can be devastating to your exertions towards building and consolidating your own Mind Power. It is best to simply recall the utmost important thing about attitude change. As mentioned at the top of this article.
Our purpose is not to influence others, except by Good example. Our purpose is to develop a permanently Positive Attitude, and construct a Powerful Mind.
One accomplishes this purpose by seeking and implementing the Laws of Nature, that allow this seriously awesome Phenomenon to take place. Other folk will ask questions when they observe that you consistently resolve issues, and solve problems, with seemingly effortless skill, and equanimity.
When you meet another person and recognize they too possess such a mind, cherish him or her. They are the pinnacle of Good, and make the very best allies.
The point here, when dealing with real people is not to feel rejected, or dejected, when your newfound enthusiasm for mind expansion is challenged by ignorant others. By definition, an ignorant mind knows no better. Humans behave as intelligently as they see themselves. This includes you and me.
Comprehending and accepting that constructing a Positive Attitude is entirely one’s own responsibility, is paramount to succeeding in attaining such an attitude. The rewards on offer however, far and away outweigh the effort expended.
Beyond that state of mental fog generated by bad behavior and miserable attitude, rendered from wrong thinking, exists a wondrous fog free World.
Following through and reaching this fog free world is part of the priceless reward for believing in yourself, and learning to take charge of your mind, and hence, potential.
Whatever combination of resources one settles on to explore and examine the lessons Nature has on offer matters not. You will find your own equilibrium and happily hone your mind to a razor sharpness that will become your greatest asset and your greatest ally.
You will be truly on the path of enlightenment when the realization strikes you that you must commit the rest of your life to this wondrous journey, and you willingly, excitedly, make that commitment.
Without a doubt, attitude change can change your Reality.
Welcome to the World of Truth, Freedom, and Responsibility. A World where a can do attitude plays a major role.
