In his book, "Attitude is Everything," Keith Harrell writes, "You may not be able to change your height or your body type, but you can change your attitude. A positive attitude is not only a product of genetics and heredity but, with proper trainng, an acquired trait."
Since productive work is all about getting things done with and through others, a negative attitude will cost you dearly in terms of ineffective team work, poorly functioning meetings, and ultimately significant time loss.
Choose an attitude of gratitude. Be recognized as someone who is positive rather than negative. Look to find opportunities where others see problems.
Accept responsibility for your internal dialogue. Recognize and put a stop to the stories we tell ourselves that are not based on fact.
Live your life with purpose and passion. A personal vision will keep you focused and upbeat. Believe in yourself and take on a can-do attitude.
