De-Coding the Path to Success, Principle #3

How the Big Achievers do it

Now we need to discuss one of the traits that I have confirmed as absolutely essential to Success, and that is ATTITUDE.  Attitude is a significant part of life. And it can make/break your success. It may not be the most important thing in life….but it ranks right up there with oxygen. There are 4 questions we need to ask: What does my attitude affect? What does it shape? Whom can it influence? What can it mean in my business? And if there was just one thing we should ask ourselves it would simply be:  “Am I a fountain or a drain?”    Negative is easy. It takes no effort. And here is a KEY…Attitude is NOT just a reflection of our environment. It is a CHOICE we make. That’s IT!  Being positive and up when your teeth are getting kicked in, that takes effort. It is not easy.     But the payoff is huge. What can we do right now to help ourselves, our Team, our clients, our suppliers with Attitude? Here are some thoughts. 1—turn off the TV . I’m not advocating sticking your head in the sand. But there are no solutions here and not much education. Everyone who has followed this suggestion has come to me a month later to tell me how much better they feel. 2—don’t allow negative people to exist in your space “How do we get negative people out of our space?!”  Just  don’t be around them. 3—read and educate yourself. If you can only read 10 pages a day you can read several good books in a year’s time. 4—be crystal clear about where you are going.
