Attitude for 2nd of April 2011


The greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes” by William James.

It is not only discovery of William James’ generation. Any person who ever lived and tried to change his attitude saw how his life changed. Most people do not believe it as they do not see very many positive examples around. However, there are plenty of bad examples when a young person starts compromising moral values for some sensual pleasures and starts going astray. You can see how easily his/her life starts going down and if he/she does not stop the person destroys his/her life very fast.

What we should have in mind is that this works both sides. If you accept bad attitudes a natural result is that your life starts going down. But if you accept a good and right attitude your life will start going up. I now know a dozen examples how former drug addicts were ready to commit suicide or it was clear to them that if they do not stop now, they will be dead in a few weeks, but they made drastic decisions by changing their attitudes and purposes in life and everything changed. Most of them are married now, have businesses and lead sober lives. One of my friends is actually a head of a rehabilitation center and a chairman of all rehabilitation centers in my country. I would not continue the story, but you can see that a change in attitude brings serious changes in life. I wish you change your attitude for the better.
