Attitude is our mind set
Five factors that influence your mind set are:

1.    Our familial circumstance – not hereditary but created.
Familial circumstance is a particular air maintained traditionally by a family. The attitude of elders creates a mind set in younger ones. It transfers to the younger ones. Thus the family keeps certain hereditary characteristics.

What our elders speak of poor people, how our elders behave to poor people, how much our elders care or deny the poor wretched people, creates a mind set in younger ones. This becomes our family tradition.

2.    Our immediate society – people we meet, mingle, talk, care for etc.
Each society has a story of its own about everything. Those stories usually end with a moral. A moral is a soft warning.

3.    Our religious awareness – stories of religious and pious people lived before.
Religion wants followers – aims at creating followers.
Religion is always didactic – never has an aim to entertain
One thing good about true religious spirit is a love for humanity.

4.    Education
 What we learn for examination never create a mind set. What we learn while we study our text books create a mind set.

5.    Our experiences in everyday life has a major role in creating our mindset
Everyday experience leaves behind a psychological feeling or impression (good and bad)

Let us define attitude as below:
Attitude is the psychological response to a situation, place or person on the basis of the mind set.

Attitude is personal. Our attitude is ours alone. It is how we understand, accept or reject and respond to a place or situation or person.
Attitude is not something provided by an outside source. A place, person or circumstance cannot give us an attitude. It is our way of approaching things.
So our attitude towards the same place or person or situation can be changed or determined by ourself.

Our Attitude towards a place is our response to that place – not the response of the place towards us.
Our Attitude towards a situation is our response to that situation – not the response of the situation towards us
Our Attitude towards a person is our response to that person – not the response of the person towards us.

Broadly speaking Attitude can be positive or negative; creative or destructive.

Behavior is a product of attitude. We behave in a particular way in a place on the basis of our attitude towards the place. If we like the place, we behave splendid; if we dislike the place we behave clumsy.

Attitude is contagious. It spreads like a contagious disease. Our attitude affects others. By the end of the day it affects the whole society. By the end of the month it affects your state. By the end of year it affects your whole county. By the end of some years it affects the whole world.

How can we change our attitude?
We need not behave like all others. No law in any country forces us to behave negative. So whatever way others behave, we can maintain our own attitude and behavior.

What is your attitude towards diseases?
1.    I do not want it
2.    Trying my best to escape from it
3.    If it catches me, I try for immediate cure.
What will be the best attitude? Of course the first, “I do not want it”, is the best attitude.

This is the best way to escape from the bad attitudes of other people.
“I do not want it.”
