Do You Suffer From Any Of These 7 Deadly Diseases Of Attitude?
Well, I have been listening to the Success Series with Jim Rohn. I just finished the Module on
Attitude and in this module he lists the 7 diseases of Attitude. As I was going through them I began to notice how many of them I actually suffer from. I found this success series to be eye-opening.
#1 Indifference or Neglect
Do you put everything that you've got into everything that you do? This is an easy trap to fall into. It is easy to push something off to the side if you are indifferent about it.
This one can create a mental paralysis. Make a decision to act. The adventure is to see how many decisions you can get into. Indecision can cause a sleepless night. When I am struggling to make a decision I find that my mind just keeps circling around the topic. Once a decision is made I am able to move on. I find that I sleep much better if I am quick to make decisions.
Become a believer in your self. It is hard for others to believe in you if you do not believe in yourself.
This is one of the worst and can cause health, social and personal problems. It is devastating. When I start to worry usually it is about things that have not even happened yet. Try to change your mental focus to what you want, not on what you don't want.
#5 Too Cautious
Don't be timid. Its how you live that is important.
This is the disease of always looking on the bad side. The Glass is always half empty
If you spend 5 minutes complaining you have just wasted 5 minutes of your life. Stop complaining about your job and start to have gratitude for what it has helped you learn. I tie this into being selfish as well. The more I think about myself the easier it is to complain about what I perceive as problems. If I am able to turn my thoughts to others and how I might be of service then I find that I have more of an attitude of gratitude. I discuss being selfish in this blog post.
It is these poor thinking habits that keep people poor.
It is when you have enough reasons that you can change your life. So my challenge to you is to get a really long list of reasons. Create an attitude of gratitude.
Start a gratitude journal. At the end of each day list 3 things that you are grateful for. Make sure that each day the 3 items are different. This will raise your awareness of gratitude.
