if you ever read "7 habits of highly effective people" it talks about this, certainly there are all kinds of literature talking about the same things as well (using various terms but all with basically the same meaning) - that is, the duality of attitude and values. of personality and fundamentals.

luther is talking about one part of it - shifting your worldview so that things look right to you. being a people person. relating well with the earth and its contents. being persuasive to others and yourself. having a positive attitude. but there is a second part, which takes priority over the first part, and that is living a life of virtue. ben talks a lot about this. core values like honesty, integrity, sincerity, etc

a two-tier system: tier one is the fundament. tier two is the execution of that

to expand on this briefly, sure luther if you say "well thats the way it is, im just going to accept it," you can find contentment there. but for the world to truly be good, you not only have to have the right attitude, but also the right values shaping the world that you later must come to accept.
