Do u wanna know?

An attitude is a hypothetical construct that represents an individual's degree of like or dislike for an item. Attitudes are generally positive or negative views of a person, place, thing, or event. This is often referred to as the attitude object. People can also be conflicted or ambivalent toward an object, meaning that they simultaneously possess both positive and negative attitudes toward the item in question.

There's two type of attitude, first is negative attitude and second is positive attitude. I'll explain the first attitude which is negative.

Negative attitudes often emanate from pre-existing biases or prejudices that then become manifest in one's relationship with others. If one's thoughts, opinions and words are pessimistic, defeatist, suspicious, ever critical and hostile then one's attitude is certainly negative. If we are cognizant of the fact that attitudes indicate our approach to daily living we realize how damaging negative attitudes are to our sense of well-being; it dictates our whole life. Be aware, if the only tool one has is a hammer, one tends to treat everything else like a nail. Our attitudes could motivate us to action or debilitate us into inactivity. If you believe you can, you are right; if you believe you can't, you are right; for if you really want to do something you can find a way, if you don't want to do it you could always find an excuse.

Positive attitude helps to cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid worry and negative thinking. If you adopt it as a way of life, it will bring constructive changes into your life, and makes them happier, brighter and more successful. With a positive attitude you see the bright side of life, become optimistic and expect the best to happen. It is certainly a state of mind that is well worth developing and strengthening.

Attitude also can affects your life, while people with negative attitudes remain victims of circumstance, people with positive attitudes rise above their circumstances and become architects of life, positively impacting on their own destiny. The great Islamic poet-reformer, 'Allama Iqbal, made reference to this when he said: " Imbue your self with such positive drive that before destiny takes effect, there is a consideration on the part of the Divine to engage your plan of action."

A renowned medieval Islamic scholar, Ibn Taymiyyah, who opposed the injustices and oppression perpetrated by the Muslim government of his day, was threatened by the authorities, warned to remain silent and shun public criticism and condemnation of the rulers or else suffer the consequence of either imprisonment, torture, exile or death. His response to the oppressors epitomizes the pinnacle of positive attitude. He said; "If you imprison me, I'll have some solace and time to meditate; if you torture me, I'll be rewarded by Allah for every suffering I undergo; if you exile me, I'll see the world at your expense and if you kill me, I die a martyr. There is nothing you could do to undermine me."

So, the conclusion is u can choose either u want to be a positive attitude or negative attitude. One can choose to be either negative or positive in any given situation. You can't be both negative and positive at the same time. Be positive. A positive attitude is contagious, don't wait to catch it from others; be a carrier and pass it on. Positivity, like knowledge; when shared, is not halved but doubled.

Choose to be positive.. (^_^)
