There are attitudes which inevitably lead to failure. If you are wondering why you are not successful and have any of these attitudes; work on changing them so you can be successful.
It is not my fault
People/ the government, owe me a living.
That job is beneath me.
God will take care of me without any effort on my part to make my life comfortable/rich/secure.
Defining luxuries as necessities and not recognizing the difference. I deserve: a living, nice clothes, eating out, nice things, vacation, and so forth.
I will not change with the times.
I refuse to recognize that changing times require a new strategy.
I attack: a person, a situation, etc., when I can not get what I want.
That is too much work, too difficult, too boring and so on.
I want what I want NOW. Why should I wait?
I canít do it: I donít have enough education/money/influence/ health and so forth.
I give my word, but who can blame me if I donít remember I gave it or I can not and do not keep it? I donít create a plan so that I can keep my word.
What I do is right. What other people do is wrong.
I quit because: it was too hard; took too long; I got bored.
No one will give me a break.
I canít do (fill in the blank____) because it is too difficult, I do not have the energy, I am not well,.
Jimmy Cricket in a Walt Disney film sang ďThe world owes me a living tr-la la la la la la la la la.Ē
it is wonderful that others try uplifting these attitudinal failures, however in certain cases their own belief systems guarantees that the well-meaning aide enables them to continue in their pursuit of failure.
All of the above statements are negative. Negativity becomes a self fulfilling prophecy. It leads to disaster. Only with a positive creative thinking approach will your goals begin to be met, by you and by no one else.
There has been blind pianists, paralysed individuals among them: a president and business owners, hearing impaired persons who have become leaders, individuals who over come the lack of hands, a severely disabled physicist, and the millions of immigrants who came to America dead poor; who have contributed to our welfare in art, business, running the country and the world problems. They all had one thing in common. No excuses: Only I can, and I will continue to sacrifice the immediate future for future gains which brings progress for themselves and for the world. On a personal level confidence and happiness occurs by accomplishing the worthwhile purposes in life.
