Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character

Our attitude determines our altitude. This old adage has been oft-quoted. It carries immense substance and truth within it. Our attitude defines our entire world-view. It has the potential to transform doors into windows of opportunities or walls which block those opportunities. It all depends upon us – our point of view and our perception in a particular circumstance or situation.
Altering our view of the world, altering the way we look at dire circumstances, changes our perception. We could call a glass half empty or half full or we can be thankful that there is a glass in the first place. The human mind is a wonderful creation of the Almighty. It can mould itself beautifully or it can be influenced by external factors in the same profound manner.

One’s attitude also shapes one’s character, that is, one’s personality traits and behaviour. If one has his/her mind in the right place, and a positive attitude, then one is not afraid of the nay-sayers. Nothing will ever seem impossible or unachievable to such a person. Whereas, on the other hand, if one gives way to negative thoughts and feelings, if one lets weakness creep in, then one is doomed. A weak attitude will always pull a person and his/her character down, no matter how strong he/she is and no matter how much he/she tries to resist.
One’s character is not built in a single day. It requires nurturance and attention right from one’s infancy. Just like a tree, if not nurtured properly right from its seedling stage, will never bloom into its full height and splendour, in a similar way, if a human being’s surroundings and heredity are lacking or are inadequate, his/her growth might become stunted, he/she might not be able to realise his/her potential entirely. That proves detrimental not only for him/her but also for those whom he/she surrounds.
Man is rightly labelled as a social animal. He is, to a large extent, shaped and influenced by the company he keeps. If one’s associations are trustworthy, resilient and noble, one’s character and attitude will automatically be shaped in a positive way, excluding all sorts of negativity and weakness. Life then, would be lived fully in all its hues. Courage and perseverance would be the hallmarks of one’s character.
