Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge.
As I was talking to a friend of mine about training and educating people for changes she reminded me the difference between attitude and behavior. Here is T.C.'s quote "You can change behavior but not the attitude".
She is right, here is Oxford dictionary's definition for:
Attitude: A settled way of thinking or feeling about something.
Behavior: The way in which one acts or conducts oneself, especially towards others.
Having said that, we need to reflect on what we do or can do (Outward expression) versus what we really think or feel (Mindset).
We might have positive, negative or neutral views thinking but our outgoing mask speaks a lot about us. We want to be positive for the goals we have, happy family, work environment, jobs, school etc.
According to Maxwell Maltz, 'Self-image' is the key to human personality and human behavior. Change the self image and you change the personality and the behavior.
~Maxwell Maltz (March 10, 1889 – April 7, 1975) was an American cosmetic surgeon and author of Psycho-Cybernetics (1960), which was a system of ideas that he claimed could improve one's self-image.
In short work on your behavior. At the beginning it will be hard but you will make it and you will be successful
