Career & Life 2.0:  Reset Your Attitude  

“The mind is a powerful thing. It can take you through walls.”  – Denis Avey 

The attitude you carry can do one of two things:

Put you in a place of living your life in the positive with opportunity and promise …
Put you in a place where you can’t take a step forward because someone or yourself told you “you can’t” …

I hear it all the time. I can read a person very fast when I talk with them. They are either up on themselves, or down.

Dan – “I never find the right partner … There is no hope for my business … I will never have enough money … My job is terrible but I am stuck there … This world is so screwed up … I never find joy in anything – I was born to be underwhelmed and disappointed with everything”.

Make you feel good – NOT! Sound like you – maybe. Can you change it – absolutely. The only thing that holds you back is yourself and that brain that talks to you.

I found this formula for attitude:

If
A B C D E FG H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

Is equal to:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 24 25 26

ATTITUDE is:

A +T+T+I+T+U+D+E

1+20+20+9+20+21+4+5 = 100%

Apply the same to money – comes in at 72%. Love – 54%.. Luck – 47% – but these are most important, right? That is what we have been told. NOT!

Continuing … Hard Work – 89%. Knowledge – 96%

Attitude is the most important factor of success. Combine a positive attitude with hard work and knowledge – you cannot fail. You cannot succumb to just getting by. You can not fall victim to others who are in their own dark place.

You can smile. You can take pride in your work and how you help others.

Attitude challenged – check in at the curb. Enter new and fresh. Be all you want to be.
