The 80/20 rule is as applicable to individual people.
Fully eighty percent of your success will be determined by your attitude and only twenty percent by your aptitude. Some people feel that attitude is ninety percent of success in all human endeavours involving other people, but we can quite comfortably use eighty percent as a figure for the purposes of this article.
Develop a Positive Attitude – A positive mental attitude, or a constructive and optimistic way of looking at yourself and your work, goes hand in hand with success in every field and in every market. The development of this unshakable attitude of cheerfulness and enthusiasm is your springboard to greatness as a person, no matter what is going on around you.
Upgrade the Quality of Your Thinking – The quality of your thinking determines the quality of your life. If you improve
the quality of your thinking, in any area, you improve the quality of your life in that area. By using your mind, your ability to think, you become a creator of circumstances rather than a creature of circumstances. You move from being powerless to being powerful. You determine everything that happens to you by the way you think about it, in advance.
You may not be what you think you are, but what you think, you are!
Change Your Inner Attitudes of Mind – The most rapid and positive changes in your personality and your results come about when you change your thinking about yourself and your possibilities. When you reprogram your subconscious mind so you feel a sense of unshakable optimism and self-confidence, every part of your life begins improving immediately. As William James of Harvard wrote in 1905, “The greatest revolution of my generation is the discovery that individuals, by changing their inner attitudes of mind, can change the outer aspects of their lives.”
Expect the Best – The very best people have an attitude of calm, confident, positive self-expectation. They feel good about themselves and they have absolute faith that everything they are doing is contributing toward their inevitable success. They are cool, relaxed, happy and cheerful about their lives and their careers.
They know, deep in their hearts, that they are good at what they do, and their customers know it as well. They are the champions, or superstars, of life, and you can be one of them by developing the same attitudes and attributes that they have.
Here are two things you can do immediately to put these ideas into action:
First, decide today to develop and cultivate an attitude of calm, confident, positive expectations towards yourself, your customers and your career. Expect the best!
Second, take complete control of your thinking and concentrate on the solution rather than the problem. Look for the good in every situation. Be positive and cheerful, no matter what happens.
You can CHOOSE to take action or you can CHOOSE not to, one thing is for sure…… You will get a result one way or another, good or bad!!
