How to build Positive Attitude

My first blog for 2012. I was thinking what should it be about, should it be technical, something new that is coming from backup technology, or about a new product launch. But then I thought maybe it should be something which we shall require for rest of the year and for life. POSITIVE ATTITUDE.
Everyone almost knows about this, but as time passes everyone including me might have missed it somewhere. Stating this, I thought it shall be a good start for the year to refresh some basics.
The first thing for Positive Attitude should be to become good finder. Let's start looking for what is right in a person or situation instead of looking for what is wrong. Human nature generally resists change. Change is uncomfortable. Regardless of its positive or negative effect, change can be stressful. Sometimes we get so comfortable with our negativity that even when the change is for the positive, we don't want to accept it. We stay with the negative.

We need to feed our mind with the pure and the positive to stay on track. Through constant practice and exposure, we can learn the principles that make a person successful.

Following Steps can be implemented to build Positive Attitude

§  Continuous positive education leads to positive thinking.
§  Build positive self-esteem quickly, one of the fastest ways is to do
    something for others who cannot repay you in cash or kind.
§  Practice having positive thoughts and behaviour daily until they
    become a habit.
§  Be so strong that nothing can disturb your peace of mind.
§  Talk health, happiness, and prosperity to every person you meet.
§  Make all your friends feel there is something in them.
§  Look at the sunny side of everything.
§  Think only of the best, work only for the best, and expect only the
§  Be as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about
    your own.
§  Forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater
    achievements of the future.
§  Give everyone a smile.

Read the life histories of people who have turned a negative into a positive, adversity into advantage, stumbling blocks into stepping stones.
Some examples:
§  Some of the best music was composed by Beethoven. What was
    his handicap? He was deaf.
§  Some of the best poetry written on nature was written by Milton.
    What was his handicap? He was blind.
§  One of the greatest world leaders was US President Franklin
    D.Roosevelt. What was his handicap? He served from wheelchair.

Accept Responsibility.

When people accept responsibility for their behaviour and actions, their attitude toward life becomes positive. People with negative attitudes will blame the whole world, their parents, teachers, spouse, the economy and the government for their failures. You have to get away from the past. Dust yourself off, get back into the mainstream. Put your dreams together and move forward. Thinking of the positive things that are true, honest and good, will put us in a positive state of mind.

Accepting responsibilities involves taking calculated, not foolish, risks. It means evaluating all the pros and cons, then taking the most appropriate decision or action.

Let me place an example here:

The retiring president of a company after a standard farewell, gave two envelopes marked No. 1 and No. 2 to the incoming president, and said, "Whenever you run into a management crisis you cannot handle by yourself , open envelope No. 1. At the next crisis, open the second one."
A few years later, a major crisis came. The president went into the safe and pulled out the first envelope. It said, "Blame it on your predecessor." A few years later a second crisis came. The president went for the second envelope, and it said, "Prepare two envelopes for your successor."

I shall end my blog here looking forward for a successful year for everyone.
