Attitude Is Key To Succeeding
Before you can be a success in building a business you need to know how to learn to learn. If you cannot do that, then it is difficult to earn as you learn. You definitely need a good attitude to learn to learn and to earn as you learn. No two ways about it.
Think about attitudes! We see them every day with everyone we deal with and speak to either in person or on the phone. You know that if you speak to an upbeat, positive person you come away from the experience feeling pretty great yourself. Talk to the Grinch That Stole Christmas and 9 times out of 10 you will come away feeling grumpy and stressed. That “attitude” we got handed dealing with that person just put us in a position to find out how we handle stress. Would that be with grace and good humor, or give back what you get?
This may come as a bit of a surprise, but it makes sense, attitude also directly affects the way stress handles YOU. Optimists cope way more effectively with stress. They achieve more when they take action and do it extremely effectively. And guess what? That in turn multiplies their results.
It’s a bit like the old saying “Like attracts like!” Ok, you’re not dating here, but you do want to attract positive people with positive attitudes. Why? If you are positive and you have positive people working your business, you are far more likely to achieve short and long-term success.
It’s not hard to spot positive people, because they view situations differently than negative people do. Just to give you an example of what that means, think about these statements – see if you can pick out the positive person vs. the negative person.
Statement number one would be: In times of uncertainty I expect the best.
Statement number two would be: In times of uncertainty, I expect the worst.
Statement number three would be: I don’t expect things to go my way. Statement number four would be: I don’t always expect things to go my
way, but if they don’t, I try to learn something from that situation.
You get idea. Just by what people say to you, you can figure out if they are positive or negative. Their choice of words is a big tip off as well. Using the words I won’t indicates a choice. Using the words I can’t – that says they feel they are powerless.
If you are new to the direct sales business you will learn from the beginning how to build a business with a positive attitude and taking action. These two basics are your foundation. Think about how powerful you really are, how you will be the best there is in your business, how you will find like-minded people and achieve the results you want. It’s just that easy! Your mind is a very powerful thing, and YOU are the Leader. And, as the Leader, you take action to build your business daily.
Not sure what motivates you? Ask yourself some questions about why you want your business to succeed. Make a list of 10 reasons and post them where you see them every day. Review them once a month just to see if they need modifying, take old reasons off and add new ones. Seeing your reasons for success daily will motivate you like nothing else will.
