What's It Going To Be?
October 19, 2015
It's decision time! What's it going to be?
Your attitude has a HUGE bearing on your success - both personally and professionally. It affects everything that you do.
Either you get up every morning with a positive attitude, ready to face the challenges of the day, or you don't. These are the only two choices. Positive or negative. Eager or apathetic. There really isn't any middle ground.
I'm sure we all know someone with a negative attitude. Think about how you feel when you are around them. Do you seek out their company? I'll bet not. They seem to attract negative things to them, and if you're like me, you don't want to get caught up in it.
Of course, negative things also happen to positive people. That is an unavoidable part of life. The difference is that for the positive person, their attitude of confidence enables them to handle these things in a much better way. Their attitude allows them to deal with the situation at hand and then go back to their positive mindset, rather than becoming mired in how bad things are and just perpetuating the negativity.
Your attitude is your choice. Right here and now, you can decide whether to be the negative person who lets bad things happen again and again, or the positive one who handles occasional difficulties with a sense of confidence.
Make the decision to be positive. Make the decision to have a can-do attitude.
It's not always going to be easy. Making that decision does require a bit of work. You will have to stop playing it safe and staying within your comfort zone. Developing a can-do attitude will move you outside of your safe area, but at the same time it will open you up to tremendous growth. It will enable you to proceed with confidence as you move toward the business results that you want.
I know this because it has happened to me, many times. As a business owner, it’s inevitable that at times you will get in your own way. Sometimes you will get stuck in an attitude that isn’t allowing you to get the best results.
When this does happen, figure out what is holding you back, what is happening to prevent you from reaching your results. Ten times out of ten, you will find that your attitude is the problem. The key is to identify and acknowledge this, and then to consciously make the shift to being positive.
You have the power, right now, to develop the can-do attitude that will move your business forward to the results that you want – and that you deserve. Don’t be afraid to use that power. Let's do this!!
You are the creator of your own destiny. -Unknown
