Motivational » Attitude

When we talk about attitude, we are here referring to mind-set, a way of thinking and behaving in regard to certain aspects of life and in life in general. It can be said that you have a good attitude towards something or a bad one. This is subjective and relative. What constitutes a good attitude and a bad one? There is no concrete explanation, no single way of thinking and acting, this is called freedom.

An attitude is a hypothetical construct that represents an individual’s like, dislike or indifference towards something. They are generally positive or negative views about people, places, things etc.

Your attitude towards everything is formed throughout your life right from birth. It is not something you are born with and it can be shaped either in your favour or to your detriment.

Attitude is Everything

Developing yourself to your fullest potential is an all-consuming task. The intense training required to build a functional physique simultaneously cultivates a functional mentality, and vice versa.

At Personal Evolution we believe in training as if your life depends on it. Here you will not find mainstream fitness of the same breed you will encounter in gyms and through the latest Billy Blanks DVD. This is a new breed of fitness, one that encompasses mind, body and spirit and develops not only peak physical condition but also mental and emotional strength that will withstand anything that life can throw at it.

As I said attitude is everything. Without the right attitude you can’t even hope to develop yourself adequately to deal with possible challenges. The attitude I am referring to is one that charges head-on into challenges and even welcomes them in pursuit of excellence. Attitude is the all-consuming mind-set of a champion and a warrior. If you want something bad enough you need to apply enough will and courage toward it’s accomplishment, without excuses or procrastination. Attitude is about doing what it takes, enduring the toughest, most gruelling challenge and giving everything you’ve got whether you feel like it or not.

Without this strength of mind and will you will remain average. Without it, all the exercise physiology and scientific knowledge means nothing. This applies to all fields of endeavour, not just elite fitness.

Elite performance physically and otherwise is not something that can be handed over for a material price. The price is something that cannot be paid by opening your wallet or even by studying all the latest and greatest methods available. Likewise for attitude, this is something that is developed through effort, adversity, suffering, salvation and eventually triumph.

A "Carved From Stone" Mind-Set

As mentioned earlier, all training should be approached as if your life depends on it right then and there. Sub-par mental and physical commitment mean death. Anything less than ALL your effort will not suffice. This is a warrior’s mind-set, this is attitude.

A good workout is not one written neatly on a clean programme card from the gym. A good workout is a quest, something that should give you butterflies at the very thought of what lies ahead. This is what develops real character, real conditioning. You might start out soft with the attitude that you're fragile but you will end up being carved from stone. This applies to everyone from old ladies to elite athletes and fighters. Carved from stone means strong and resilient, resistant to fatigue and emotional breakdown, resistant to the common ailments of the general public.

Attitude is about thinking, breathing and behaving as if everything you do has purpose (because it should). Develop an attitude where, as Nike says, “impossible is nothing”, treat every day as if there were a victory lying ahead if only you apply all of yourself.

Every bead of sweat falling from your head, every weight you’ve pumped, every gruelling challenge you have overcome…the history of all of that is in your eyes. This is attitude, this is dedication to the development of excellence. In any situation for the rest of your life you should not have to think, “shit, I should have trained more”, instead you will be standing there feeling like a lion, like a king leading an army to battle. That is attitude, that is spirit.
