The Foolproof Combination of Action and Attitude

Lesson One of the Producing Results series is The Foolproof Combination of Action and Attitude. I have chosen to reverse the order of attention by placing attitude before action. I believe that attitude and belief precede action. I invite you to consider the following:

What do you carry inside your mind?

We carry images, perceptions, assumptions and stories and we believe they are all true. Our belief or attitude translates into action. Attitude and action is equal to experience. Experience produces results and the cycle gets reinforced.

Think about how you think, it could be a lie.

Recently a very talented Adult Education Teacher taught a non-credit writing class at a local Community College. She loved what she did and received outstanding evaluations from the class members as well as the Department Chair. She was looking for a career change and was advised to apply to the Community College as an English teacher.

She had always wanted to teach college credit classes but believed that she needed a Master’s Degree to teach at that level. She had settled for teaching Adult Education Classes and the pay that went along with it. When she was assigned to research the requirements for the teaching position of her choice she discovered that she did not need the Master’s Degree. Her belief had held her back, the truth set her free and she went on to teach at the Community College.

What The #$ Bleep*! Do We Know? The Secret

The movie ,What the #$Bleep*! Do We Know? is a wonderful and fascinating movie. It introduces us to theories of physics that offer a new level of insight into our world and how it operates. The movie demonstrates the scientific, biological, philosophical and spiritual power of how we think, how we act and the results that attracts. What the Bleep Do We Know includes research that was conducted by Dr. Masaru Emoto, a renowned Japanese scientist, who discovered that molecules of water are affected by our thoughts, words and feelings. An intriguing aspect of the movie involves the patterning of water crystals as they are influenced by thoughts and words. Beautiful and uplifting words create coherent and lovely patterns in the water. Negative thoughts create the opposite quality in the water. Dr Emoto’s research is documented in the book in The Hidden Messages Water. Since human beings and earth are composed mostly of water, his message is one of personal health, global environmental renewal and a practical plan for peace that starts with each one of us.

Attitude and Action. Are You Aligned?

When we think positively and align our behavior with an attitude of gratitude we will attract positive experiences.When we adopt an attitude of resolution and behave pro-actively we resolve conflict and use differences to mobilize action and move in the direction of what we want. I invite you to review your thinking and pay attention to how your behavior follows your thinking. Are your thoughts headed in the right direction? Does your behavior support what you truly want in your life? As individuals when we master this in our own lives we become more masterful as leaders and team members in the workplace.
