This week in my Friday News Minute, I offer the article The Power of Positive Attitude by Remez Sasson. For many of us, life is harder today than it was just a few months ago. You may have lost your job or may be working harder because you are doing extra work these days. The economy is certainly an area of concern. Personally, I am feeling more stressed today than I have in a long time. Yet, I know there is great opportunity in hard times.
My attitude is as positive as ever. And in some invisible way, I believe that my positive attitude has already led me to sign contracts with new clients (that have money to pay my fee and want to upgrade the skills of their people). I believe that this will be one of PCI's best years ever! What do you believe about your self and your career? A good friend once told me "Your Attitude Determines Your Altitude". Together, we can fly high in 2009! It all starts between your ears. All the best - Andrew
The Power of Positive Attitude
Positive attitude helps to cope more easily with the daily affairs of life. It brings optimism into your life, and makes it easier to avoid worry and negative thinking. If you adopt it as a way of life, it will bring constructive changes into your life, and makes them happier, brighter and more successful. With a positive attitude you see the bright side of life, become optimistic and expect the best to happen. It is certainly a state of mind that is well worth developing and strengthening.
Positive attitude manifests in the following ways:
Motivation to accomplish your goals.
Not giving up.
Looking at failure and problems as blessings in disguise.
Believing in yourself and in your abilities.
Displaying self-esteem and confidence.
Looking for solutions.
A positive attitude leads to happiness and success and can change your whole life. If you look at the bright side of life, your whole life becomes filled with light. This light affects not only you and the way you look at the world, but also your whole environment and the people around you. If it is strong enough, it becomes contagious.
The benefits of a positive attitude:
Helps achieving goals and attaining success.
Success achieved faster and more easily.
Greater inner power and strength.
The ability to inspire and motivate yourself and others.
Fewer difficulties encountered along the way.
The ability to surmount any difficulty.
Life smiles at you.
People respect you.
Negative attitude says: you cannot achieve success.
Positive attitude says: You can achieve success.
If you have been exhibiting a negative attitude and expecting failure and difficulties, it is now the time to change the way you think. It is time to get rid of negative thoughts and behavior and lead a happy and successful life. Why not start today? If you have tried and failed, it only means that you have not tried enough.
