Attitude is a State of Mind

A positive attitude is key to creating your own success:
It is your attitude at the beginning of a task that will more than anything else determine success or failure.

It is your attitude towards life that will determine life’s attitude towards you.

You control your attitude. If you are negative, it’s because you have decided to be negative, not because of other people or circumstances.

Act as if you have a good attitude. Remember that actions trigger feelings, just as feelings trigger actions.

Treat everybody as they are the most important person in the world.

When you are faced with a problem, adopt the attitude that you will solve it.

Employers will employ someone with the right attitude over a person with the right skill. A skill can be taught, but attitude is something you have from within you.

Having the right attitude means:
Always being willing to help
Being courteous and polite at all times
Showing respect to others
Being willing to accept change
Being willing to grow for further development
Being willing to go the extra mile to satisfy the need of customer on behalf of the company you work for

The following points show good attitude:

Desire efficiency and effectiveness
Be goal directed
Find balance
Understand what is important
Display calm and unruffled behaviour
Be orderly
Be objective towards tasks, people and their instructios
Manage stress
Handle criticism
Cultivate a “do it now” attitude and don’t procrastinate. Everyone puts off what they don’t enjoy doing
Do not bring your personal problems to work. In extreme cases it may be necessary to discuss personal problems with your employer so that he/she is aware of the situation, but most problems should preferably be dealt with outside of working hours
Attitude is more important than past, education, money, circumstances, failure, success or what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearances, giftedness or skills. It will make or break a company, an organisation or a home.

We have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change our past and we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the string we have, and this is our attitude.

Life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of how you react to it. Attitude is up to you and you are in charge of it.

So go out there and be responsible for your own attitude, and enjoy shedding positivity into the World!
