Changing negative attitudes is not impossible, but it is not a piece of cake either. If you really want to change yourself for the better, you have to be 100% on it.

This can't just be a one-time thing where you'll immediately give up after the first time. You really have to commit yourself to this for it to work.

If you're ready to learn about changing negative attitudes, then read on!

Step 1: Decide On A Goal.

Oftentimes, it is our negative behavior that stands in the way of our dreams. But if we're seriously focused on a goal, then we will do whatever it takes to achieve it, even when it entails changing certain aspects about ourselves.

Take Mary for example. She wasn't the hardest working person in the company; but when she made it her goal to earn a promotion, she started taking shorter breaks and started working longer hours.

Instead of waiting for others to come up with an idea, she went ahead and suggested her own. Because she had a very clear idea of what she wanted to happen, she initiated the change herself.

If you can find a goal that is really worth working hard for, then changing negative habits or behavior will not be a problem for you!

Step 2: Give It A Name.

Changing negative attitudes starts with knowing what kind of undesirable characteristic you have in the first place.

Are you lazy, rude or prone to jealousy? By identifying what these negative qualities are, you at least have some sort of idea on how to go about getting rid of them.

After all, if people keep telling you that you are short-tempered and yet you can't even admit it to yourself, then this attempt to change (what you perceive isn't existent or necessary) will be nothing but a waste of time. Be honest with yourself.

Step 3: Find A Role Model.

Changing negative attitudes can also mean replacing them with better qualities. And who better to help you do that than the person with characteristics you admire?

How about your boss, eh? He's smart, talented and is always respectful to everyone - even the door man. What about your aunt? She's confident, grateful and is fond of giving out compliments.

When you find someone with positive attitudes, it becomes easier to adopt those same attitudes yourself.

Changing negative attitudes can turn your life around. The very fact that you finished this article in the end is already proof of that burgeoning change.
