At­ti­tude mat­ters a lot

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - IQRA NAWAZ AB­BASI

At­ti­tude is the very es­sense of an in­di­vid­ual’s way of think­ing; it is an in­di­vid­ual’s ideals, his con­cepts of right and wrong, and all his/her as­pi­ra­tions. At­ti­tude may be de­fined as the sum of the in­di­vid­ual him­self. His think­ing, his views, his likes, and dis­likes are all en­closed in the sin­gle word, i.e. ‘at­ti­tude’. There is a ques­tion in our mind how th­ese at­ti­tude grow in our per­son­al­ity? Are they by­birth or are they a later growth in man’s life. To this ques­tion, the an­swer is that, yes, some as­pects of an in­di­vid­ual’s at­ti­tude are in­born, in­her­ited and taken in due to his / her con­di­tions and en­vi­ron­ments.

When the per­son grown up some changes may oc­cur in his at­ti­tude ac­cord­ing to the needs of the times, but his ba­sic think­ing and at­ti­tude re­mains the same as he got dur­ing the groom­ing stage of his life. Thus, though some mi­nor changes do oc­cur in adult­hood, the ba­sics that he grew with never change in depth. We mostly lis­ten that, at­ti­tude makes a man - yes, once an at­ti­tude has de­vel­oped, it is there to stay, and it plays a very im­por­tant role in build­ing the per­son­al­ity of a man. Once the at­ti­tude of an in­di­vid­ual is happy and whole­some, he con­tin­ues to grow with this at­ti­tude and live with it. At­ti­tude mat­ters a lot in our life when we re­al­ize that at­ti­tude of a per­son has such a deep im­pact on his per­son­al­ity. We must try to have a straight, hon­est, and healthy at­ti­tude to­wards ev­ery­thing and every­body around us. If we do so, we will be able to ap­pre­ci­ate our sur­round­ings and get ap­pre­ci­a­tion in re­turn. Our per­son­al­ity de­pends upon our at­ti­tude; if we meet other in a good man­ner, ev­ery­one ap­pre­ci­ate us. It is for us to try to de­velop a healthy at­ti­tude and be easy and com­fort­able with life and all that it has to of­fer. I am sure, if we learn to take life as it comes, with a smile, there will be no cause to be un­happy at any stage of life. —Via email
