Trust me, I completely understand the plight of the busy mom. As a mom with two active daughters, I am so used to giving, giving, giving, and then giving some more that I can occasionally (hopefully only occasionally :-)) end up with a plain old BAD ATTITUDE. The critical issue for me in these times is not letting a bad attitude linger to the point that it affects my personal happiness, joy, and my ability to effectively run my home-based business.
So, how do you know whether your attitude is generally positive or negative? Author John Maxwell lists 7 signs of a Great Attitude, and I’d like to include them below for your review and reflection. If you find that you struggle with any of these 7 signs, then you have a great opportunity to work on making change today so that your family, leads, and prospects can experience the BEST YOU, and you can never have to worry again whether you’re standing in the way of your own success in business and in life:
The 7 Signs of a Great Attitude:
- Belief in Yourself
- Willingness to See the Best in Others
- Ability to See Opportunities Everywhere
- Focus on Solutions
- Desire to Give
- Taking Responsibility for Your Life
After reviewing these 7 signs, how are you feeling about your attitude? Do you need an “attitude adjustment?”
If so, then here are Maxwell’s 5 suggestions to help change your attitude for the better:
- Claim Responsibilities…Not Rights!
- Associate with Positive People
- Make the Present Moment Your Happiest
- Find Ways to Relieve Stress
- Don’t Take Yourself Too Seriously
In short, it’s important that you stay in tuned with your thoughts and feelings as they can vary from day to day. This list will help you to know which path you may be headed down so that you can capture negative or self-sabotaging talk that may want to creep in and ruin your productivity and results. If you can master your attitude, then you are well on your way to a successful life and business.
