The way you dedicate yourself to the way you think will create the foundation to the rest of your life. In other words, the power of attitude, your attitude, sets the tone for how you approach every situation you may face.
Your attitude not only sets the tone for you, it sets the tone for others around. Be infectious. Be the pace setter. Be positive and watch others become the same.
I like what Zig Ziglar said in the first book on sales I ever read. He was talking about the power of attitude and how you have to “get rid of your stinkin’ thinkin’.”
Don’t be the rotten apple in the barrel. Make your attitude a positive example for others to follow.
The Power of Attitude
There are four areas where your attitude has the greatest impact.
Your Family – If you get this one wrong, the rest doesn’t matter too much. It’s okay to be down at times, after all, we are only human. But it’s how you handle those down times that can make a difference. If you have a positive attitude with your family, everybody, even mama will be happy.
Your Customers – If you are in business you know how easily a bad attitude will affect your customers. The power of attitude can be the difference in making the sale or losing it. Make sure you keep things positive and upbeat. Your customers will notice.
Your Co-Workers – If you want peace in the workplace, keep your attitude in check and always keep it positive. It can be tough at times with the stress of the job always trying to knock you down. It’s up to you to harness the power of attitude in a way that you are the one who sets the tone.
Your Life – The power of attitude in your life is everything. Even though there will be struggles, keeping a positive outlook on life will help you to overcome your toughest obstacles. Life is shorter than we know. There’s no time to waste it on stinkin’ thinkin’ so keep it positive and keep looking to the bright side.
Life is a journey, you’re the vehicle, the power of attitude is the fuel.
