ATTITUDE IS EVERYTHING By Mike Moore http://www.motivationalplus.com
If we are products of our attitudes then it is important for us to examine our attitudes, both positive and negative, to discover impact they are having on our lives. This is even more important if we are determined to maximize potential that is ours, a potential which, in vast majority of us, remains grossly underdeveloped.
Positive attitudes release a power to achieve that will astound you, while negative attitudes severely hamper our becoming people we are capable of becoming. It become central task of anyone interested in actualizing their enormous potential to become involved in process of attitudinal transformation.
Attitudinal transformation takes time, effort and determination but it can be done. Don't expect perfection, just progress. It took a long time to develop negative attitudes and it will take time to transform them. It is also important not to concentrate on more than one or two negative attitudes at once. If you overload your agenda for change you run risk of becoming discouraged and giving up.
Once you have identified negative attitude you wish to transform, commit yourself to process of becoming conscious of that attitude cropping up throughout day. You will be surprised at how quickly you will become aware of your target attitude. When you are focussed on attitude, visualize it leaving your body and flying off into great beyond. Now replace it with a positive attitude and give yourself suggestion that from now on this will be your dominant thought pattern. Whenever your old negative attitude creeps back into your mind engage this process of thought replacement. Soon new attitude will become dominant and you will find yourself enjoying its positive power in your life.
Donít Let Negative Programming Create Your RealityWritten by Anita Foley
What have you been programmed to believe? Throughout your life, you have been programmed by your parents, your friends, your siblings, and yourself. Programming occurs as a result of repeated actions or messages. This programming creates your beliefs, your beliefs guide your actions, and your actions create your reality. Positive programming results in optimistic beliefs and gratifying realities. For instance, if you were programmed, when you were six years old, to think tooth fairy would give you a quarter for your tooth, you probably believed it. The result of this belief was most likely a gratifying experience. You were programmed by your parents, friends, or siblings to think there was a tooth fairy and you believed it. This belief guided your actions and you put your tooth under pillow. This action created gratifying reality, (i.e., you got your quarter!) Unfortunately, not all programming results in beliefs as benevolent as tooth fairy. Negative programming results in detrimental beliefs and disappointing realities. If you were programmed by your parents, friends, or siblings to think it is too risky to start your own business, you probably believe it. This belief guides your actions and you stay at your job. This action creates your disappointing reality, (i.e., you get a limited paycheck and give half of it to Uncle Sam.)
