Attitude is everything and we all have heard about this phrase a lot of times. But the matter of fact, in practical situations we find it impossible to keep a positive attitude.
Because there is huge flaw in our perception towards things or situations that we face.
99% of the failure is because of a weak attitude.
What is Attitude?
To begin with, let us understand what it is.
Attitude is nothing but a way of thinking or feeling about something.
That is your own perception of things is called attitude.
Everybody, if alive, has some or the other problems, or say challenges, in their life. And you may have seen many people cribbing about it and some facing it with courage and a smile.
These are all just different attitudes towards their situations.
And the biggest concern is not the problems, because everybody has it. In other words, the difference is in your attitude towards that concern.
Attitude is 99% of the success.
Why to have a strong attitude?
Firstly, it is not a necessity to have a strong attitude. That is, it all depends on what you need from life.
If you are happy with your life, being a failure then you can continue like that. Please do not get me wrong.
Because it all depends on what you want from life. If you want to achieve any goal, and desire to taste success in every aspect of life then attitude should be your first point of focus.
Like I said before, attitude is 99% of the success.
Because this is what will inject that fuel necessary to fire the strength to tackle any blockage in your path.
Firstly, we all want a successful life but many of us gets discouraged with the obstacles that come our way and give up.
Have you ever thought why we give up so soon?
Did we ever question whether our attitude is right or wrong?
Why do we get so discouraged in life that we end up losing our hope to live?
All the answers lie in this topic. That is, your perception is the reason for all this.
Secondly whenever a tough situations comes your way, you lose the motivation to proceed towards your goal.
And there is a big reason behind it. That is, your positive attitude is based on results.
I won’t be covering the negative attitude in this topic, because we all know it leads to 100% failure.
Further, even after being positive people fail.
Let us understand the different types of positive attitude for a better perspective.

Different types of positive attitude:
- Attitude based on results
- Attitude based on actions
1. Attitude based on results:
Many of us do this mistake of having a positive attitude based on results. That is to say, they feel positive because of the thought that they will succeed.
Let us have a practical approach towards this and understand it through a scenario. There is a ball in front of you and you have to pick it up.
What are the chances of you picking it up?
Now let us consider there are 10 more people to pick that 1 ball.
Now what is your chance of getting that ball?
It depends on a lot of factors correct!
But the result oriented people approach with 100% positive perception that they will get the ball and they get discouraged when they fail.
The problem with this approach is people get suicidal tendencies when they fail. Further, depression, anxiety, hopelessness attack the people with such attitude.
Because their attitude towards anything is based on the results that they will succeed for sure.
2. Attitude based on actions:
This is the right way of approach towards anything. Because in this path, we are being practical and confined with the 80-20 rule.
80-20 rule says if there are 100 people working towards a goal of achieving a position, 20 % will actually be serious.
So if you are serious towards your goal you will fall in the 20% category that is 20 people. And in that 20 people again 20% will actually have the capability of achieving that position.
So if you ask yourself truthfully, if you really have the capability and the answer is yes. Then you fall in the 20% bracket that is 4 people.
So with this analysis, it is very clear that you have a 25% chances of achieving that position.
And you are moving towards your goal with this clear understanding and giving 100% towards your actions.
With this attitude of giving 100% towards your actions and having a positive attitude based on this action with a clear understanding that there is only 25% chance of you winning, is the perfect way of approach.
How to develop a positive attitude?(Attitude is Everything)
Every positive attitude should be backed by a reason. And, if not, then gradually you will lose that positivity and bang hard to failure.
As discussed above there can be 2 different reasons for positive attitude. One is backed by results and other is actions.
Action based approach is what you need to develop.
I, personally, believe in simplicity so as always I have come up with a simple way to gradually help you develop a perfectly positive attitude.
Let us start with sports. That is games are the best way to develop a strong positive attitude.
Any games you play, let it be chess or any other game. The task is to focus on your actions and just let go of the results.
That is, win or lose, it doesn’t matter.
The point here is to focus on the current action and give your 100% to it and be positive about it because you have taken 100% best action based on your capability.
Now, what will happen with this small task?
To clarify, gradually with time, your attitude will become strong and your mind will start to apply it in other aspects of life as well.
That is, all you need to do is train your mind with this approach. And what else can be better than games.
Further, with this approach you will never ever be discouraged.
In fact you will feel superb because of the actions. And the only time you will be discouraged is when you will not give your 100%.
But, even with this discouragement you will feel completely responsible for your actions.
And this responsible feeling will make you work hard to achieve your goals.

Protect your attitude:
Since now we have understood the importance of having a perfect positive approach, we will start to work towards our goals.
But there will always come a time in your life where you will become clueless on how to proceed. And during this time, the obstacles will look bigger than your goals.
This is when 90% of the people give up.
And this is the time, when you should protect your attitude.
With the words ‘protect your attitude’, it seem like a very complex thing to do. As if you need to fight and all.
But it is nothing like that.
It only means that you need to remind yourself about the real meaning of attitude which is mentioned here.
