Control behavioral attitude, to cut Ebola virus transmission

Control behavioral attitude, to cut Ebola virus transmission

People don’t want to take precaution and warnings given to us by our authorities and the professional nurses.  More or less, our behavioral attitude is the one killing us softly with the help of this deadly virus.  You may well question the statement made in the title of this article.  Moreover, there are many who feel they have little or no control over their lives.  And things happen to them are totally beyond their control, while illiteracy goes beyond uncontrollable.

We all have control over our lives when our authorities warned us of the A.B.C. factor, which says; Avoid Body Contact.  Having being sensitized by authorities in relation to this deadly virus and its precautions, heavens know that, no one else controls our thoughts or our attitudes.  Furthermore, those warnings are what make our lives to what they are because of the status quo.  While it is true, others may try to control some of our outer circumstances such as our salary at work place, our vacation time, and even the hours we work.  But unfortunately, they do not control our thoughts and attitudes.  In addition, you are and will become what your thoughts and attitudes make of you.  Others may influence your thoughts for better or worse, however you control them.  Here in our beloved nation, we are too quick to accept what others say as being true without checking it for ourselves.  What is true for others, it may not be true for us.

On the serious note, we need to take the advice and statements of our Ebola professionals and others with caution, accepting only that which will advance us toward what we wish to be and achieve. This is not to say we should keep a closed mind. Always maintain an open mind because you never know when you will find something in another’s statements or actions which will be of great benefit to you.

In as much as you have not made up your mind positively, it is difficult to maintain a positive, uplifting state of mind when all seems to be going against you. Believe it or not, the pain of being depressed and worried of such a deadly virus, this really requires more of you than the effort it requires to be positive and happy about your life and its conditions.

We seem to have gotten into the habit of accepting things as they come without making a determined effort to change our way of perceiving them. For some reason we believe it easier to accept things as they are than to make changes in our thinking and attitudes.  This is due in part to all the things we have learned from others and from our experiences.  We are always being told to go with the flow by the simple method of hand washing, nobody contact and not to rock the boat.  For our own peace of mind and benefit there are times we must take charge of ourselves and do only those things best for us, regardless of being against the flow or rocking the boat. Ebola virus is invisible, lethal, imperceptible, vicious and deadly.

Conclusively, the direction of your thoughts with all the good things in our lives sometimes takes a lot of concentrated effort. It also takes much effort and creates a lot of stress when constantly thinking of the things in our lives which are disagreeable to us. So why not use our thoughts to our advantage? Why not try controlling our thoughts and attitudes to experience the change it will make in our life and break the chain of the Ebola transmission?
