Thoughts On Attitude – Sometimes Things We Are Told About Put Us Off!

thoughts on attitudeEverybody has different thoughts on attitude, and the way you actually think can change your attitude. I have been aware of a change in some people’s attitude when they are told a story that triggers and imaginary and emotional response from them based on what they are told. There are many people who have negative thoughts about very positive things and also people who have an imagination based thought process that put them off things. These attitudes generally have a detrimental effect on the outcome that should be accepted based on truth rather than assumption. Is everything as bad as we make it out to be?

Thoughts On Attitude – This May Make You Leave Before The End

Ok, so if I tell you this story, you may get an imaginary feeling that might make you cringe. Our thoughts on attitude that can make us this way are due I believe to imaginary feelings that are based on the “very thought” of something.

Two years ago I had to have an operation on my eye to repair a detached retina. The procedure was something that, if I were to think about it, would have truly put me off having the operation. Because I had the attitude that it was the operation or going totally blind in my one eye, the thoughts didn’t occur to me about what the feelings would be like.

Pre op was 2 injections into my eye area, one by the side and another with a long needle just under the eye. I had to be awake throughout the whole procedure and yet there was no trepidation, but a resignation that I had to get on with it to have a successful outcome. I basically saw the whole thing and had to lie completely still. The surgeon went into the eyeball to remove the dried blood, which was fascinating, then they repaired the damage to the retina (there were 3 tears) with a laser.

The worst thing was the gas that had to be put into the eye to help the repair to complete. Thankfully the procedure was successful.

Thoughts On Attitude – The Moral Of The Story

The moral of my story is that should I have actually dwelled on the procedure and thought about it, I would probably have been terrified! Fear would have overcome my thoughts and my attitude would have been much different. It wasn’t a bad experience in any way. Ok, I would have preferred not going through it, but because I resigned myself to the facts of going blind or saving my sight, the decision and reaction was inevitable for me.

The same thing happens with our business. There are things that we are uncomfortable with and fear takes over. When you resign yourself to having to get over obstacles in your life and business then you will get to the other side. It’s not really as bad as we imagine.

Take your own thoughts on attitude seriously and “be brave” if that’s how you want to see it. I have had a successful outcome to my surgery, even though I have a cataract in the same eye that requires removal at the time of writing this. I have my sight and everything is good. I wish everything was as “easy” to overcome (wink).

To the future

  • Thoughts on attitude based on a emotional response to a situation is something we all have to overcome. Its really that fear of the unknown that kicks us in the butt.

    Fear of starting a new business.
    Fear of investing in advertising.
    Fear of creating a product or a video for that matter.

    But is overcoming that fear that is the true courage of the entrepreneur. Without courage your just going to be another robot working for a boss. Worse yet, you’ll always wonder, if I hadn’t have quit, where would I be today?

  • Great article Barrie. Our attitude decide our outcome. When you want other results you have to change your attitude.

    • Thanks Bruno. It’s something that stays with me to get through the obstacles that may be put in my way. Jump over and sprint off down the other side!

  • Congratulations Barrie – very brave indeed – and I did cringe reading your post! 🙂 I agree with you – success lies on the other side of fear and it is largely about attitude. Thank you for sharing.

    • Thanks Babis. It seems you got through it. I’ve found out today that I have an appointment to get the cataract removed so that’s good. Apparently the postman put it into the wrong house! My son told me.

  • Great article Barrie,

    We are always bombarded with negative things, whether its the TV, papers or people around us. We need to learn counteract this with positve thoughts.

    end of your post 🙂 Yes stay positive Barry 😉
