Attitude Adjustment, Character Correction

Justice 10/23/2019

I was asked for help on a project, and I didn’t have a good attitude about it. I had something else I wanted to do and didn’t want to burn daylight assisting in another area.

It is easy to correct my son when he gets a poor attitude. It is easy to call anybody else out on this when I see it. But if somebody would have called me out here, I would have denied it and been wrong for it. In truth, my attitude needed an adjustment.

Continuing on in this manner, I doubt the person would ask for my help in the future. That would hurt, because I want to be called on when needed. But what I was doing was not helping my credibility. Would I want someone else’s help who would only give it grudgingly? Not a chance.

Having a poor attitude is direct reflection on my character. I believe I have a strong work ethic, but nobody is going to want that kind of negative baggage even with positive results. I know I wouldn’t. I would rather just do it myself.

So today, I am going to reflect on my attitude and how it impacts my character. If I am serious about being a positive role model for not only my son but for those I come into contact with, I am going to monitor this in the future and make the necessary adjustments.

Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character. –Albert Einstein
