Attitudes build prosperous communities

Good attitudes stop procrastination.

Attitudes can make or break a community

People in a town or village with the wrong attitudes can break other’s spirit, and turn them off wanting to do anything to help the community.

Changing people’s attitudes and mindsets are the ultimate battleground.  Your mind is the space where the most significant and fiercest conflict occurs.  It is where half of the things you thought were going to happen, never actually happened.

It is where resistance buries people with negativity. Moreover, when people allow these thoughts to dwell in their mind, they gradually succeed in robbing them of the opportunity of making a positive difference to their community.  They become desperate procrastinators and think themselves right into health problems.

 

People with a bad attitude can become as useful as a flat tyre on a car passed its used-by date.

 

There is so much about our communities and the fate of the people who live there which we cannot control. It makes no sense to focus all your time and resources on these things and neglect everything which will make a difference, and you can control.

You can decide how you spend your time right now. What you choose to focus on, and with whom you share ideas and opportunities.  You can determine your future direction, and you can decide what you will read and study for inspiration.

You can decide how you are going to respond to challenging situations, and whether you will see them as more adversity, or opportunities for growth. The choice of attitude influences pretty much everything and everyone you engage.

How attitudes can impact a community

It is critical for your happiness, and the community’s long-term prosperity, you choose to recognise when your attitude has a negative influence, and then consciously make adjustments. Attitudes will impact the community’s outlook in so many ways, often for many years to come, including:

  • Confidence to act
  • Poor self-esteem and belief in a better future
  • Creativity and innovation is restrained
  • A lack of presence and self-awareness
  • Resistance to change and acceptance of the current struggles
  • Fearing and hiding from any proposed changes
  • Peoples indifference and procrastination challenge even the best intentions
  • People’s comfort zones dominating a lack of progress
  • Negative attitudes can severely impact health and well being
  • Approaches become rooted in unrealistic ideals
  • Growth and sustainability becomes the elusive goals
  • Propagation of long-standing self-limiting beliefs
  • Old stories about failure are continuing to resonate and cause procrastination.

What could your community achieve with even a small shift in attitudes? In other words, think carefully about attitudes impacting action in your town or village, and what can be done to improve them.
