Human nature generally resists change. Change is uncomfortable. Regardless of its positive or negative effect, change can often be stressful. Sometimes we get so comfortable with our negativity that even when the change is for the better , we didn’t want to accept it . we stay with the negative.
It is a story about a prisoner who was locked up for many years in a dungeon. After many years , he got his freedom. He was brought out from his cell into the bright daylight of the open world . This man looked all around and after a few moments was so uncomfortable with his newly freedom that he asked to be taken back to block him in his cell. To him, the dungeon, the chains and the darkness were more familiar, secure and comfortable than accepting the change of freedom and an open world.
Many modern – day prisoners do the same thing . The stresses of having to cope in an unfamiliar world are so great that makes them commit another crime in order to be sent back to prison , where though their freedom is restricted .
If your attitude is negative, your life is restricted. Your success at work will be limited. Your enjoyment of life will be less.
Negative attitudes lead to :
A purposeless life
High stress level for themselves and others
Next day I’ll share with you my thoughts on how you can build a positive attitude.
