Breaking an attitude is very difficult.. The brain is conditioned to work in that way, the brain finds happiness in that way.. so its very difficult to deconstruct it within hours or within days.
It might take weeks or months... so if you are ready to change, than follow these steps

1. Analyze Your rigidity - your attitude comes from a rigid thought process.. analyze it.
2. Rationalization - accept the flaws that your rigid behavior pattern brings to you.
3. Every morning trust yourself to do better in battling this attitude. somedays you will do good... and somedays you will do bad... but change will come slowly.
4. Tense moments will be there, accept them and take them as a learning experience.
5. Avoiding Mind Games - you tend to manipulate your own mind, by procrastinating on goal achievement.. the more you do so, the more you will fault in changing an attitude.
