Creating and maintaining a positive attitude is necessary for successful leadership, and success in general. An attitude of optimism, expectancy and enthusiasm fosters opportunity and growth. A positive attitude attracts others to your side and encourages them to do their best work. Your attitude will stay upbeat when you:
Before you take any action, look at your greater goals. The connection must be strong to be worthwhile. Aimless activity wastes time and energy.
Stretch yourself to maintain flexability in attitude.
It’s a mistake to those great results and then be disappointed when you don’t get them. Take your best shot and let it happen for a while… then of course readjust, fix etc.
Look back at your actions and see what you can do (if anything) to improve your performances instead of feeling bad if you fail or get rejected.
Surround yourself with positive thinkers. Your brain automatically imitates the behaviors of the people around you.
If you want to be happier and make those around you feel more comfortable, cultivate the ability to laugh at yourself.
Cultivate patience and tolerance for those less talented, passionate or knowledgeable.
An “attitude of gratitude” goes a long way and includes real verbal or written “thank-you’s”, not simply thoughts.
