One of the most important steps you can take toward achieving your greatest potential in life is to learn to monitor your attitude and its impact on your work performance, relationships and everyone around you.
Attitude is Everything
Your mind is a computer that can be programmed. You can choose whether the software installed is productive or unproductive. Your inner dialogue is the software that programs your attitude, which determines how you present yourself to the world around you. You have control over the programming. Whatever you put into it is reflected in what comes out.
Habitual bad attitudes are often the product of past experiences and events. Common causes include low self-esteem, stress, fear, resentment, anger and an inability to handle change. It takes serious work to examine the roots of a harmful attitude, but the rewards of ridding ourselves of this heavy baggage can last a lifetime.
Positivity has a direct relationship with possibilities. People who are negative tend to have a fixed mindset, and are closed off to all of the possibility that exists in life. Negativity and a victim mindset go hand in hand. Conversely, when someone has a positive outlook and attitude, they are much more likely to have a growth mindset and are open to the abundance that exists within the world.
There is nothing more exhilarating than being around people who exude a positive attitude. In life, attitude is everything. It is the lens through which you see the world. It affects the actions you take based on past experiences and now interpret in current situations. It governs the way you perceive the world and the way the world perceives you. It is attitude that can determine how fast you will achieve your goals or how well you will acquire a skill or knowledge.
We all have choices. Having a strong, positive and resilient attitude is a choice. All my personal and professional successes has been achieved through having a positive attitude. It is no secret that life seems to reward us most when we approach the world with a positive attitude. One of the most important steps you can take toward achieving your greatest potential in life is to learn to monitor your attitude and understand its impact on your job performance, relationships and the people around you.

Attitude matters more in the current volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous world. It is essential in campus and corporate as the negative attitude often kills productivity and performance in the workplace and the negative attitude shells out unhealthy students from the educational institutions. Therefore, it is essential to emphasize the importance of inculcating a positive attitude in individuals.
There is often a thin line that separates positive and negative attitudes. When individuals and leaders cross that thin line, they can become successful leaders. When you look at Obama and Osama, they are great leaders but Obama has a positive attitude while Osama had a negative attitude. Undoubtedly, both are intelligent but the former with a positive attitude while the latter with a negative attitude. When you look at Winston Churchill and Adolph Hitler, both were intelligent leaders and great orators. The former was with a positive attitude while the latter was with a negative attitude. It is obvious from these examples the importance of attitude over intelligence and eloquence. Additionally, attitude triumphs over experience. When you work in the corporate world, attitude plays a crucial role over experience.
Here are some tips to improve your attitude. Be positive. Visualize success. Set your goals as they remove negative thoughts from your mind and replace them with positive thoughts. Additionally, you are engaged constructively to lead your life with purpose and meaning. Surround with positive and healthy people. Read good books. Learn, unlearn, and relearn. Learn from your failures. Pursue your passions and hobbies to engage your mind creatively. Acquire healthy habits. Do meditation, or yoga, or hit the gym regularly. Eat the right and healthy food. Stop complaining, criticizing, and condemning others. Be a giver, not a taker. Come out of your comfort zone and stretch yourself. Become a volunteer. Join nonprofits to serve others. Work for a cause, not for applause. Express your gratitude every day. Every day morning, when I wake up from my bed, I thank God for gifting one more day to share my knowledge freely with the world. I pray to God to make my day exciting and beautiful with great news. Every day night, I express my gratitude to God before I go to bed for making the day great.
When I worked as a professor in educational institutions, I emphasized more on improving the attitude of the students than on sharing my knowledge because I believe that students are smart and brilliant to acquire knowledge from the internet and books. What they need is a passionate and inspiring educator who can change their mindset by improving their attitude, behavior, and personality. To summarize, your attitude determines your altitude of success. To conclude, improve your attitude to excel as a leader and soar like an eagle.
Your attitude isnot based on your personality. As one example, some introverts have a great attitude and extrovertsthat you want to run from. And vice-versa. Your attitude expresses your inner disposition towardlife and leadership and affects how people see you. 041b061a72
