Human Engineer

Hello Lifectioners,


Be a Human Engineer.. THE NEED OF THE PRESENT..Quite a new term to hear, but yes for good and better life, now we have to start becoming human engineers.. This is the demand of the present for
While going through the book "The Magic of Thinking Big" by David J. Schwartz, I came across a passage in which the author describes the instance he came across with and I am definitely sure that we all too have definitely come across this thing quite a lot many times when a much more deserving candidate looses the competition whereas an undeserving candidate is enjoying the benefits for the same..

"Another person I know well was inducted into' the Army shortly after earning the Ph.D. degree from a leading New York university. How did he spend his three years in the Army? Not as an officer. Not as a staff specialist. Instead, for three years he drove a truck. Why? Because he was fIlled with negative attitudes toward fellow soldiers ("I'm superior to them"), toward army methods and procedures ("They are stupid"), toward discipline ("It's for others, not me"), toward everything, including himself ("I'm a fool for not figuring out a way to escape this rap").

This fellow earned no respect from anyone. All his vast store of knowledge lay buried. His negative attitudes turned him into a flunky.
Remember, the thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you have. Not even a Ph.D. degree can override this basic success principle!

Several years ago I became a close friend of Phil E, one of the senior officers of a major advertising agency. Phil was director of marketing research for the agency, and he was doing a
bang-up job. Was Phil a 'brain"? Far from it. Phil knew next to nothing about research technique. He knew next to nothing about statistics. He was not a college graduate (though all the people working for him were). And Phil did not pretend to know the technical side of research. What, then, enabled Phil to command $30,000 a year while not one of his subordinates earned $10,000?

This phil was a "human" engineer. Phil was 100 percent positive. Phil could inspire others when they felt low; Phil was enthusiastie. He generated enthusiasm; Phil understood people, and, because he could really see what made them tick, he liked them.
Not Phil's brains, but how he managed those brains, made him three times more valuable to his company than men who rated higher on the IQ scale.
Out of every 100 persons who enroll in college, fewer than 50 will graduate. I was curious about this so I asked a director of admissions at a large university for his explanation.
"It's not insufficient intelligence," he said. "We don't admit them if they don't have sufficient ability. And it's not money. Anyone who wants to support himself in college today can do so. The real reason is attitudes."

Yes, definitely the attitude that you have towards your life determines the success.
It is not that successful people don't face any hard situations, but it is that they take them as challenge and try to face it with optimism.
You loose the challenge, or fight, as soon as you loose the fight in your mind. Being a Human Engineer means that you face the situations you face constructively. If the engineer uses bad quality material in his construction, the building's gonna fall now or later. Similar is the case with your negative thinking, this is what you are using in your construction leading to faulty engineering.Its not the intelligence that a person has that matters, but the way you use your mind. The way you react to situations in your life. Whether you got a positive attitude towards life's challenges. Sour, negative, pessimistic, depreciating attitudes rather than insufficient; intelligence holds back thousands of young executives. As one executive told me, "It is a rare case when we pass up a young fellow because he lacks brains. Nearly always it's the attitude."
  "Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." -Winston Churchill
Remember the thinking that guides your intelligence is much more important than how much intelligence you have. Not anyone can surpass this success principle..!!
"If you don't like something, change it. If you can't change it, change your attitude." -Maya Angelou
And you can change it with the positive thoughts and positive response in your life.. Thats the law...!!
