A Positive Attitude Leads To Success!

The Power of Positive Thinking.

How often have you heard the expression “the power of positive thinking”?

Well, it is not just an expression – it does have power – and is inextricably tied to developing and maintaining a positive attitude.

I am, fortunately, married to a great guy who always has a positive attitude. First thing in the morning, he looks at himself in the mirror and says: “I can choose to have a good day or a bad day. I choose to have a great day”.

Thus, his attitude is set for the day! I do the same, of course.

Attitude Is A Conscious Choice

Starting the day right reinforces the fact that attitude is a conscious choice.

So, it is about seeing the glass as half full not as half empty.

Also, there is a very old story that illustrates the difference between a positive and negative attitude. It is The Shoe Story.

"Many years ago, two salesmen were sent by a British shoe manufacturer to Africa to investigate and report back on market potential.

> The first salesman reported back, There is no potential here - nobody wears shoes.

> The second salesman reported back, There is massive potential here - nobody wears shoes.

This demonstrates so very well the huge difference between a negative attitude and a positive attitude.

Because, the salesman with the negative attitude only sees the problems and disadvantages. In contrast, the salesman with the positive attitude sees the immense opportunities and benefits.

The Foundation For Success.

A positive attitude is certainly the foundation for success in life and in business. This, coupled with one other quality that is vital: persistence!

The most successful people will tell you that success and failure go hand-in-hand.

So, you should not view a failure negatively but, in a positive light.

Consider it to be a learning experience and move on to the next thing. Thus, your persistence is brought into play here. And with persistence and the right attitude, you can keep on moving towards your success.

Try to choose a positive attitude for yourself at the beginning of each day.
