“Attitude is Your Asset” - Professor M.S.Rao
“Everything can be taken from a man but ... the last of the human freedoms - to choose one's attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one's own way.” - Victor Frankl
Recently I conducted soft skills training program for freshers. I taught them various aspects of campus recruitment training including facing the employment interview. When I came out of the seminar hall a student met and asked me, “What is the meaning and definition of attitude?” I was excited to see his curiosity to learn about attitude. I explained him as follows:
Attitude is all about how you act rather than react to a situation. It about how you present and behave with others. It is about how you view the situation and the people around you.
Although the righteous man falls ten times he rises but the wicked man never falls twice. It means, if a person with a righteous attitude and values fails and falls God handholds and finally he succeeds in his life. However, the wicked man with negative and rotten attitude doesn’t get second chance. Hence, attitude is an imperative to lead a happy and successful life. You must have a positive, right and strong attitude. Positive attitude means looking at the individuals, issues and ideas positively. Right attitude means adopting the right means and methods to accomplish your goals. And strong attitude means following your goals despite facing several challenges on your way to success. Precisely, attitude is your asset, and it keeps you firmly on your feet.
