We hear about the right attitude all the time. What’s that really?
“A predisposition or a tendency to respond positively or negatively towards a certain idea, object, person, or situation. Attitude influences an individual’s choice of action, and responses to challenges, incentives, and rewards (together called stimuli).
Four major components of attitude are (1) Affective: emotions or feelings. (2) Cognitive: belief or opinions held consciously. (3) Conative: inclination for action. (4) Evaluative: positive or negative response to stimuli.”
The right Attitude
So the right attitude can help us get to where we want to get to. If our emotions are not positive, if our belief or opinion is wrong, if our actions are not good, if our responses are bad, our attitude will not help us.
So the big question is, can we “fix” all these components so that we can have the right attitude for where we want to get to?
The simple straight answer is YES! Just think a bit, other people have succeeded in Network Marketing, why not you? Many people started with zero background in the industry and have succeeded, why not you? What’s the catch here?
Attitude comes before results
This was a very good takeaway for me from a recent training I have attended: “Attitude comes before results”.
We must have the right attitude that will lead us to the results we want to get to, prior to getting there. Otherwise it can be very difficult to achieve that. We must feel, believe, think, act and respond with the attitude as if we are already there prior to getting there. That energy will drive us and lead us to our goals!
Do not say “I just started” or “I never did this before” or “I am not very good” or “I am too young” or “I am too old” etc… These are just bad thoughts that will destroy your attitude and lead you to failure. Be excited about everything and use it in a positive way!
You just started? Great! You can reach out to everyone you know!
You never did this before? Great! Everyone started from zero! Use the experience of your team for support! Use the training system to help you grow!
You are not very good? Compared to whom? You can learn through the process of doing what needs to be done!
You are too young? Great! You have no or very few responsibilities so you can give it 100% of your time on this! You can go really fast and crash it!
You are too old? Great! Your kids are gone and have more free time! Retirement is possibly not that good so this can be your only shot for a better lifestyle and health care during retirement!
Anyway you see this you can treat it in a positive or a negative way. What do you want? Do you want to succeed or to fail? It’s a choice you can only make for yourself!
In my previous blog A Blessed Profession, I had an image with the organization structures. You can be and feel the president of your own company and act like that, instead of being an employee and acting small.
Jim Rohn said on one of his seminars that he worked full time on his job and part time on his fortune! Do you feel the energy that can drive you with that statement alone? He was building his fortune part time! He was moved by the idea that in a few years he wouldn’t have to work at a job because he would have built such a fortune that could free him up from that …and it did!
He woke up every morning eager to go to work so that he would finish up and work on his fortune! …work on his freedom!
That’s the energy, the mindset, the motivation you need to have, to create the right attitude that will drive you towards your success!
