Attitudes can Shape Your Life

By: Tom Kenney

What does Positive attitudes mean to you?

This topic could mean different things to different people. People interpret things differently from each other and to give a broad definition of this in my own words i would say, Positive Attitudes is the way in which an individual carries himself, effects others, and gives off a general positive vibe. How do you view this subject though?

Why Is a Positive Attitude important?

In life you will find yourself in challenging situations, sometimes ones that you feel you cannot overcome. If you begin the process of changing your attitude to a more positive one, it could help you through a tough situation more than you think it would.Not only would this help you but it would also effect the people around you having a hard time as well making every ones day better.

The six questions that are asked most frequently and that could help you in the long run.

  1. Tell me about a time when it was necessary to admit to others that you had made a mistake. How did you handle that?
  2. Can you describe a past situation at work that led you to grow as a person?
  3. Can you tell me about a time when you were faced with a major obstacle (work or otherwise) and how you overcame it?
  4. How would you describe the perfect work environment for you?
  5. Drawing on your work experience, can you give me an example of a time when you wanted to give up, and chose not to?
  6. How do you react when asked to do something beyond your capabilities?

Attitudes in General

In our human Relations book, it has a section about attitudes. Being paraphrased into my own words attitudes can be interpreted wrong and cause a block in the communication process and cause a barrier to go up between two individuals. If you can learn to read people and not rub them a certain way with the wrong attitude you both would be better off.

Adapting Your Attitude For The Better

To help yourself adapt to a positive attitude you should try your best to be advantageous, affluent, and more aliveness.

1.) Adventitious- something sort of unplanned but sometimes for the better in the grand scheme of things.

2.) Aliveness- textbook definition is basically not being dead however i mean me get out into the world and live more than you already are. Experience different things than you are use to, if you are lucky enough to be very affluent(3.which means rich) you can do this more than others can which isn't really a bad thing just more fortunate id say.
