We have all encountered those people who are debbie-downers and to succeed in life we need to surround ourselves with positive energy. It’s important to do a self-check as well to see what type of energy you are bringing into your workplace and/or personal life. Needless to say, we all prefer working with positive, energetic people so wouldn’t you want to be one of them?
I recently encountered an individual that had the skills, but their attitude was negative when faced with (even) small issues throughout the project. My brain made the obvious conclusion that I should avoid working with this individual again as it dampens my own energy for the project. The problem wasn’t the problem, it was the person’s attitude towards the problem that’s the problem – and clearly they didn’t understand their attitude just cost them future contracts.
Do a reality check on your own attitude now before it hinders your work or personal progress!
“When you talk you are only repeating what you already know. But if you listen, you may learn something new.” Starting Monday off with a quote to encourage us to listen more. Have a great start to the week everyone!
We honestly don’t think about this enough. The tendency for most people is to think of the worse that can happen. Lately I’ve been attempting to change this tendency, by wiping negative thoughts from my head and thinking my way to success. Surprise! It’s been working. Try it for yourself and good things will happen!
