Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference – Winston Churchill
Winston Churchill was a very SMART man. He was smart because he understood that one of the most important things you can learn in life (and especially business) is to monitor your attitude. If you want to take control of your life and unleash your incredible potential, you need to understand that your attitude is everything.
Your attitude has a major impact on your work performance, relationships and everyone around you. It’s what you think. It’s what you feel. It’s how you react and how you respond. Your attitude is your window to the world and the key is that the power is in your hands. The most influential voice you’ll ever hear is your own inner voice. Are you a positive or a negative person? Do you see potential and opportunity or do you always see problems?
Think about it. How do you react to stress, problems, bad news? Do you get easily defeated?
We all have a choice. We can choose to have a kick-ass, I’m-making-it-happen, I’ll-make-lemonade-from-lemons-attitude OR we can be miserable, pessimistic and gloomy. Each of us encounters hard times, hurt feelings and heartache. Unfortunately that’s inevitable because that’s life. You need to realise it’s not what happens to you that matters but how you choose to respond that will make the difference.
The point is, your attitude is YOUR responsibility.
You need to get up each morning and make a conscious effort to change the way you think. No-one else will or can do that for you. Only you.
AND we know, it’s easier said than done. Sometimes your day just sucks! Sometimes you have major stress and a million things to do. But take a moment, really think about it and change your behaviour. Try looking differently at the world and we promise the world will start looking differently at you.
Cool tips for a kick-ass attitude:
- Stop complaining
- Associate with positive people
- See opportunities not problems
- Picture your way to success
- Confront your fears and grow
- Let your inner voice be your biggest cheerleader
