Developing Positive Attitude (Summary of a Training Session)

Posted in English at 4:38 pm by Rou...

Perception is the physical sensation interpreted in the light of experience; it is the way you see or look at something, while Attitude is the mental position, feeling, or emotion towards a fact or state.

Your attitude towards your work, your job, and the situation you find yourself in has a significant impact on how effective, productive, and happy you become; if you have a positive attitude, you’re more likely to succeed than if you have a negative attitude.

If you have a negative attitude, you feel bad about the things that happen to you, and you expect the worst. As a result, when bad things happen you feel bad, and you’re trapped in a cycle of negativity. Conversely, if you have a positive attitude, you generally feel good about your situation, and so when bad things happen you can take them in strides “one of those things” and move on.

However, having a positive attitude isn’t about being blindly optimistic. Things go wrong sometimes, and pretending that things will “be OK in the end” is not a good way to manage your life. But rather, having a positive attitude means being realistic about your situation and why things are happening, and trying to find a way to capitalize on your experiences – positive and negative – instead of allowing them to grind you down.

Have you ever noticed how some people can find something good in every situation?

One of the best ways to do this is to alter the way you look at the situations you find yourself in. Positive people always look at things from a positive perspective.

You may be lucky enough to have a “sunny disposition” but most people find themselves looking at the negative side of situations at some point. If you can look at what happens to you from positive perspective, then you can deal with situations positively.

Changing your perspective from negative to positive can benefit you by:

·   Enabling you to take control of what happens to you.

·   Letting you examine your reactions so that you don’t overreact to situations.

·   Allowing you to think of creative ways to deal with negative situations that you face.

Before you change your perspective, you need to understand what your current perspective is. The best way to do this is to consider 3 aspects of any situation:

·   What or who you believe to be in control of the situation.

·   The extent to which your reactions are rational.

·   Whether you focus of the negative or positive aspects of the situation
