The Importance Of Leadership And Leadership In School?
In a normal life, when a person gets into an unfavorable or even dangerous circumstances, negative thought comes in his mind automatically. He keeps expecting the worst, uses too much time to worry and forgets to find a solution. Positive attitude can help people to get through the bad times easier. It can relax your mind in order to focus on finding the solution. One example of positive attitude is Thomas Edison. According to John C. Maxwell in his book “The 21 Indispensable qualities of a leader”, he said that “Edison was an optimist who saw the best in everything… When it took him ten thousand tries to find the right materials for the incandescent light bulb, he didn’t see them as that many failures. With each attempt he gained information about what didn’t work, bringing him closer to a solution.” (Maxwell 89). Furthermore, according to Doug Dickerson in his book “Great Leader Wanted”, he said that “your attitude is a forecast of your ability to relax and unwind. If your attitude is bad, your stress levels will mirror it, and the same holds true for the stress level of your organization.” (Dickerson 37) Nowadays, many teenagers become depression or even commit suicide because of feeling stress and thinking negative. There is a fact that they also got attack by other people in many reasons to make them feel bad, but their thinking can also be changed if they are taught thinking positive at school. Thinking positive does not take much effort and money, but it requires a lot of time to sharpen a person’s attitude.
