John Maxwell: Making Attitude Your Greatest Asset-Part #2

By: John C. Maxwell 

Sometimes when we evaluate ourselves and we look at things we do not like, there is a tendency for us to overengage in a lot of activity. What I have discovered is that time spent on the front end thinking about these issues will allow me to get right to the heart of the problem. Think long, act on the short is my philosophy. And just like the amateur logger who only works on what he sees in front of him, if we don’t take the time to evaluate, we will create extra work and grief for ourselves. 

There are three stages of evaluation that I have found to be very helpful. 

Identify Problem Feelings—What attitudes make you feel the most negative about yourself? Usually feelings can be sensed before the problem is clarified. Write them down. 

Identify Problem Behavior—What attitudes cause you the most problems when dealing with others? Write them down. 

Identify Problem Thinking—We are the sum of our thoughts. “As a man thinks within himself, so he is.” What thoughts control your mind? Although this is the first step in correcting attitude problems, these are not as easy to identify as the first two. 

Have a Desire to Change 

No choice will determine the success of your attitude change more than desiring to change. When all else fails, desire alone can keep you heading in the right direction. Many people have climbed over insurmountable obstacles to make themselves better people when they realized that change is possible if they really want it badly enough. My good friend and mentor Fred Smith said it best: “You are the way you are because that’s the way you want to be. If you really wanted to be any different, you would be in the process of changing right now.”
