Attitude is Everything!
Oftentimes, the “outside-in” approach can be an effective way to improve performance. You need certain knowledge to do a job more effectively, so therefore you go out and acquire it. Long ago I realized that doing this and this alone is not enough. If it were, everyone would be winning championships. We’d all be incredible managers, great teachers, phenomenal parents and wildly successful UnFranchise Owners. But not everyone is.
Why? Because so many people lack the one component that’s just as important as knowledge, and that is attitude.
Approach everyday challenges with the right attitude – along with knowledge – is the key to overcoming negativity, which is far more prevalent than most people want to accept. It goes back to the idea that if everyone possessed the right attitude and the right tools we’d all be successful.
People who are successful believe in their abilities, but are also humble enough to know that there will always be room to grow. That’s the right attitude. That’s the attitude of winners.
