Londina Cruz & Donna Kunde - “Building Success Habits”
PROFIT RADIO..."Grow With Us"
“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing, the last of the human freedoms, to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances.” Viktor Frankl
When you think of attitude, what comes to mind? You may not be able to easily define attitude, but you know a good or bad one when you see it! Your attitude colors every aspect of your life. It is like the mind’s paintbrush. It can paint everything in bright vibrant colors – creating a masterpiece. Or it can make everything dark and dreary. If you look at the lives of people in any profession who achieve lasting success, you will find that they almost always possess a positive outlook.
Today’s show is Success Habit #4: Attitudes are Contagious. Good or bad, our attitude always precedes us and determines how we interact with others. In business, the relationships we cultivate make the difference between success and failure.
Start by joining our new group in the Community of Commerce - Building Success Habits where we continue the thought conversations that arise during the show.
Objectives - The WHY
A person with the attitude that they can’t do something seldom does. A person who believes they can...does. Attitude is an inward feeling that is expressed through someone’s behavior. We can feel other people’s attitudes based on the energy they are releasing and displaying. Attitudes can be seen without a word being said which is what makes them such an important success habit to master.
Key Issues - Owner Perspective:
When you develop a positive attitude, you experience the following benefits:
What You Need to Know - The WHAT
Having a positive attitude is essential. It not only determines your level of contentment as a person, but it also has an impact on how others interact with you.
Your Attitude is a Choice You Make. The average person wants to wait for someone else to motivate them. They are tempted to believe that their circumstances are responsible for the way they think and feel. In reality, attitude is always a choice. In fact, while we can’t control many of our circumstances, we can always control our attitudes. And choosing a positive attitude makes any circumstances look better. When you choose your attitude, you are taking control of an important aspect of your life, rather than just letting life control you.
Your Attitude Affects Your Outlook. When you choose to focus on the positive in your surroundings, you tend to see more positive things. Choosing a positive attitude about your current situation enables you to see future circumstances in a positive light. Your attitude at this moment colors your perspective both now and in the future.
Your Attitude Precedes Your Actions. Actions are always an outward expression of your inner feelings. The way you feel about a given circumstance or situation will impact the way you react to it. When you change how you feel, you change how you act. By choosing a positive attitude, you make it easier for you to choose positive actions. And this often leads to a positive outcome.
Your Attitude Enhances Your Relationships. Your attitude regarding people will impact your relationships with them. If you start with a negative attitude about a person, you will tend to focus on all of her negative qualities. A positive attitude about a person causes you to focus on her positive qualities. By choosing to see someone in a positive light, you will act toward them in a positive manner. They will usually respond in kind.
Your Attitude Alters Your Outcomes. In his book, The Winning Attitude, John Maxwell states, “Our Attitude at the beginning of a task will affect its outcome more than anything else.” Whether you are choosing to be cheerful about a task, or choosing to believe in your ability to accomplish it, a positive attitude empowers you to do your best work. It makes team interaction go more smoothly, and very frequently, it delivers the results that you desire. Expecting the best usually results in the best. Thinking positively on the front end is critical to success.
