Attitude Is The Magic Word
July 16, 2013
It can overcome difficulty, struggle, illness, problems, issues and anything else that gets in your way. It's called ATTITUDE and it's truly a magical thing. With the right attitude, any task seems easy, any goal is achievable, and any difficulty is easily defeated.
EXPECTATIONS ARE OURS
We live up to our expectations. We can be the person who MAKES things happen, or who WATCHES things happen. People will treat us in a like way, the way we feel we should be treated. Our attitude in everything we do is the biggest example of who we are. Employers love great attitudes. Why? Because they know that good attitudes are what causes good things to happen, and that bad attitudes are what causes bad things to happen. Be known for a good attitude, and you will be given more consideration in everything you do.
The best news about this is that we can establish our attitude. Plus, it's totally FREE! It costs nothing to have a great attitude, yet so many decide to adopt a bad attitude instead, causing even greater stress and difficulty on the team. The teams that win have great attitudes down to every person.
People naturally gravitate to the top in every field because of great attitudes; you can notice this yourself. It is easier to talk to the person who is bigger in the winning organization. This is because they understand how to make the people around them feel comfortable no matter how "big" they get. They don't have a great attitude because of their position; they have their position because they have a great attitude!
Everyone in the world reflects our attitude back to us ... ever notice that? If you are a grump and treat people that way, one day you will notice that everyone will try to either get away from you, or will simply reflect back to you their own bad attitude. What you send out comes back! Great attitudes are exactly the same. Send out a great attitude, and you'll soon be hearing from everyone around you ready to jump in and help you achieve your next goal. Funny how that works.
Our environment is a mirror. Our world will always reflect back to us. Know that... and use that to your benefit. Don't allow your attitude to be affected by anyone. Garbage in, garbage out ... good stuff in, good stuff out! Don't allow others to pile their garbage and bad attitudes on top of you. Just refuse to accept it, and show 'em your fabulous, great attitude. It will leave them wondering how you do it!
If you were to change your attitude today and start showing that new, great attitude around, you'd be amazed at what gets reflected back to you. Suddenly doors open, opportunities occur ... great things just seem to flow to you instead of away from you.
And remember, a great attitude is never the result of success. It's actually the opposite ... success is the result of great attitudes!
