People who are too concerned with how well they are doing will be less successful and feel less competent than those who focus on the task itself... Some psychologists call it a conflict between ego-orientation, or between extrinsic and intrinsic motivation... but in all cases, what counts is whether attention is turned away from the task at hand and focused on the self and its future rewards, or whether it is instead trained on the task itself. The latter attitude seems the more fruitful.
Portraying true love towards all & sundry is be-all and end-all i.e. it's a life style/attitude that is of greater importance than any other life style/attitude/action. Have you been portraying true love towards all & sundry?
Positive attitude is meant to give you influence over your circumstances, rather than your circumstances having influence over you. In other words, it takes you and never anyone else to decide whether or not to override your unfavourable circumstances. That also implies, it's solely up to you to feel overwhelmed or not when faced with unfavourable circumstances. So what? do imbibe a positive attitude and never a negative aspect of it. For, surely positive attitude is worth imbibing and portraying and not at all worth rejecting.
Refuse to be intimidated by your misfortunes/unfavourable circumstances. Rather, intimidate them at all cost by imbibing/portraying positive mindset, thinking and attitude against them (your misfortunes/unfavourable circumstances). For doing just that, is most likely to mark a turning point for you.
Thanksgiving is an expression of gratitude especially to God. But do you know? You shouldn't give thanks to God only when he has done something admirable or fascinating for you. Rather, you ought to give him thanks even when he hasn't done what you asked of him. Moreover, you should give thanks to God in anticipation. I mean, you've got to give thanks to him for what he's yet to do for you or rather you are meant to be thankful to God for your expectations that are yet unrealized. And believe you me. The very moment you imbibe an attitude of thanksgiving in anticipation. It stimulates him (God) to speedily respond or rather grant your expectations. Oh! yes, that's what an attitude of thanksgiving in anticipation does and that's what it will do for you. If you dare to imbibe it.
The best way to be happiest everyday in a workplace is to adapt to the attitude and behavior of the workforce who have got the longest stay, as their character is the proven reflection of the quality expectation by a person at the helm who plays the biggest role in all affairs with his say.
The liberal holds that he is true to the republic when he is true to himself. (It may not be as cozy an attitude as it sounds.) He greets with enthusiasm the fact of the journey, as a dog greets a man's invitation to take a walk. And he acts in the dog's way too, swinging wide, racing ahead, doubling back, covering many miles of territory that the man never traverses, all in the spirit of inquiry and the zest for truth. He leaves a crazy trail, but he ranges far beyond the genteel old party he walks with and he is usually in a better position to discover a skunk.
The longer I live, the more I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, the education, the money, than circumstances, than failure, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness or skill. It will make or break a company... a church... a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice everyday regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude. I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it. And so it is with you... we are in charge of our Attitudes.
The postmodern reply to the modern consists of recognizing that the past, since it cannot really be destroyed, because its destruction leads to silence, must be revisited: but with irony, not innocently. I think of the postmodern attitude as that of a man who loves a very cultivated woman and knows he cannot say to her, I love you madly, because he knows that she knows (and that she knows that he knows) that these words have already been written by Barbara Cartland. Still, there is a solution. He can say, As Barbara Cartland would put it, I love you madly.
