Attitude... Don't take it for granted...

The next topic I choose is ATTITUDE!!!
Seems familiar??? You should be coming across this word quite frequently, especially if you are a student or waiting to get a job. And something most of us take for granted!!!
Attitude defines the way in which we look at something. But I regret to say that many of the "genNext" people here lack this. I am saying this because I do have had quite a number of first - hand experiences regarding this.

I have been enjoying my college life... And one of my primary jobs in this time was nothing but to teach others whatever was taught to us by the teachers. Seems funny... right??? But it isn't...

Why did this scenario occur in the first place? Everyone is present during the actual lectures. Yet some grasp it, while others simply discard it, knowing that they need to learn it some day...
Anyway I enjoyed the job. But even while taking the support lectures, I noticed one thing: the attitude... "ANYWAY WE AREN'T GOING TO PASS THIS... BUT STILL WE CAME!!!" What's the use???

These people have already decided that they aren't going to even pass the subject!!! at least, their mind is set in that way... Even if I take the support lectures, they won't learn the full thing. I anyway take them, since I also learn from it!!! So, I always look forward to them... At least I did my job, even if they don't learn, I did my half, and the rest is up to them...

I am not pointing fingers, but this is a widespread problem, and everyone knows it, including the people affected by it. But they don't realize that their lives are going to suffer because of this... If you yourself decide that you can't do this, why even attempt??? You will never succeed... Even if you succeed, you won't feel the satisfaction...
Now, for those people who realize they have some attitudinal issues, here is a tip: Try to change your attitude. Realize that everyone is built the same way. Everyone has the same potential to win and move forward. But the difference lies in the fact that very few people realize this. Your interest shows the path forward. But you should know that you all will develop a positive attitude automatically towards it and succeed... But that doesn't mean you are the best at it, it simply means that you have the determination ...
Detemination is the result of a positive attitude... So, my message is:
Develop a positive attitude towards your work, and you will surely feel the satisfaction and taste success!!!

Even if you take the wrong path, develop a good attitude and lay your own path to success...
Every human is born to win... The only difference is WHEN and WHERE... and your attitude determines WHEN...
Because... ATTITUDE is your own mind, expressed in front of others...
So, decide carefully, and realize that a wrong decision won't derail your whole life, if you have the right ATTITUDE towards it...

I admire the last 4 lines; though I do not link "attitude" with "disinterest" stated in early lines.

The link comes when a negative attitude creates a lack of interest... ie, most of the people have misconceptions about something, that is reflected in the attitude. This is what causes a lack of interest!!!
Don't you think so?

May be yes, may be not !! If X is actually interested in being a Rock singer, and is forced to learn machines; you can't expect him to be take any interest. It's rather a social ineptness than an attitude issue.

Its all about how you see it. Know the root cause before concluding it to be an attitude problem

Ok... Lets see... An attitude can change the way you perceive things. So, even if you are not interested, developing a positive attitude may help you out finally!!!

Isn't that possible?

Attitude to a subject basically comes from the interest we have to it. The earlier comment by suraj is a serious social issue. The students need to be allowed to study what theY want to rather than limiting them to the choice given by their parents and relatives.

yes.. i agree... but if they are forced to (which is a trend nowadays), the only option is a change of attitude... I am just giving a medicine to people who are suffereing from disinterest...
