10 Positive Attitudes to Acquire

Positive attitudes

There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative. ~
W. Clement Stone

You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you. ~ Brian Tracy

Attitude is everything. A positive attitude is your passport to a happy and satisfying life because life will be  full of opportunities and possibilities. What are the positive attitudes that you can equip to face challenges in life? Here are ten of them and I urge you to add more to this list:

1.      Taking risks: It is the courage to get out of your comfort zone and do something new and different. The experience is more important than the outcome. The more you do, the broader will be your horizon. Taking risks is also making changes and be progressive.

Only those who risk going too far can possibly find out how far they can go. ~ T.S. Eliot

2.      Act not react: To lead is to take initiative to do what is necessary to do instead of reacting to events to unfold .You are judged by your proactive action and not how your  put out a fire during an emergency. 

3.      Think success: Positive thoughts promote confidence and bright outlook in things you do. You are motivated by what is possible and discouraged by what is not possible.
4.      Be optimistic: Optimism means hopefulness. Hope is a powerful force that propels you to carry on living because you expect good things to happen.

The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty. ~ Winston Churchill

5.      Aim high – Setting challenging goals and expecting the best is the way to achieve greatness in life. You can go as far as you think you can. .

6.      Committed: You are determined to carry on no matter what. Once you mind is set, noting can stop you from going where you are going. When you start you expect to finish it as well.

7.      Be responsible: You are responsible for your own life. You decide what to do, when to do it and how to do it. Just do not blame others for the outcome. When you fail, you are willing to accept the fact and learn a valuable lesson, and then you move on wiser in a different way.

8.      Attention to details: You are meticulous in discharging your work. Quality of your work matters a lot to you. It is your reputation and your image that are at stake. You are what you do.

9.      Happy at work: Happiness is a positive attitude. Be cheerful and enjoy what you do. Make changes if you can, but live with it and change yourself for those things that you cannot change.  

10.  Welcome problems: A positive attitude is to react to what happens to you with an open mind. Instead of dwelling on a problem you actively look for a solution to it. To you, if there is a will there is a way, nothing is impossible.   

It’s not what happens to you that determines how far you will go in life, it is how you handle what happens to you. ~ Zig Ziglar

Our attitude toward life determines life's attitude towards us. ~ Earl Nightingale
