# 4. ATTITUDE: Six (6) IMPACT tools for raising the bar

“Your attitude, not your aptitude determines your altitude”-Zig Ziglar
Psychologists define attitude as a learned tendency to evaluate things in a certain way. This can include how you evaluate people, how you address issues, how you confront other, how you respond to events etc. Your aptitude defines your natural ability or tendency. Your altitude describes the heights of your bar.
As a matter of fact, your researchers also discovered that there are several different components that make up attitudes and relating them to this concept, we have a few as;
  • a.       An emotional component: How one feels about a circumstance or an event especially that related to your past glories and present histories.
  • b.      A cognitive component: What you think is real or factual about an incidence, be it a vision you dream to achieve.
  • c.       A behavioural component: How your evaluations influence your actions.

An attitude could be explicit or implicit. Explicit attitude is the kind with which we are fully conscious of it and it influences our behavioural patterns in our awareness. Implicit attitudes remain unconscious and yet still also influence our sense of beliefs.

Based on few experience, we choose to evaluate things in certain ways. That is our attitude. Many people have negative attitudes that tells them that “it’s impossible” and it’s very unfortunate these are the people who remain static because their negative attitudes have an influence on their motion to raise their bars
