This 5 Step Process Is Guaranteed To Change Your Attitude For A Greater Altitude
5 August 2020 Blog
Have you ever been around a group of truly successful people? Have you ever spent time with people that are at the peak of their game? What were they like? How did you feel when you were around them? What type of “energy “did they exude?
The late great Zig Ziglar said “It’s your attitude, not your aptitude that will determine your altitude.”
As has been pointed out in the quote above, your attitude determines your altitude…..meaning, the key to success really is put simply, have a positive attitude. That is pretty obvious , but when you dig deeper, there is quite a bit entailed in that process.The following things are involved
How positive are the circles you travel in? Are you the highest achiever? Do they build you up as a person, or do they bring you down like crabs in a bucket? Do they challenge you? Sometimes to be a peak performer, you need to change the people you surround yourself with. Does this mean to disown your family? Of course not, but if they hinder your positive attitude on a regular basis…..I would think carefully about limiting how much time you spend with them. That goes for friends as well.
Another point to consider is that you are responsible for checking your own positivism “barometer.” People often mirror how you act towards them. If you speak positively, etc….that is what you will attract back! Some people have natural charisma and a positive attitude. Others have to work for it. If you need to work on it, DO IT! And don’t get upset about it! smile.
How well do you deal with obstacles? Do they stop your progress completely? Do they ruin your mood and your positive attitude? Peak performers see them as inevitable challenges to be conquered. They either plug along like nothing happened or they get more excited to overcome them.
Let’s face it, life is short and you DESERVE to be happy. Your mind is a very unique organ, but it does need to be trained just like a muscle. We do push-ups, sit-ups, run miles at a time, but how much time does the average adult spend training their mind? Not enough! Your mind can either be your greatest asset or your biggest liability. Take the time to train it and you will find that you will be less influenced by negative people and external challenges.
Your mind truly is like a parachute; it works best when open. Work daily on shifting your mindset to a, “Yes I Can Attitude” and you will find a greater level of success in life!
If you’ve been thinking about changing your circle because it is obvious you need the right energy to encourage the king of attitude that positions you for greater altitudes, by all means stop thinking and act now, Today is your day.
