How Your Attitude Can Impact Your Results
Posted July 25, 2011 by lknight85 in Life
I have been recently listening to and reading a lot of personal development books, by John Maxwell and others. Almost all of the themes of success circle around the concept of overall attitude towards situation and circumstances. Generally speaking, those who mentally prepare themselves for success seem to find that success in some way or another. I am a firm believer in God and that He is all-powerful and all-knowing. Whether you believe in this or not, there is still something to be said for those “positive thinkers” out there.
Do you think that some of the most successful people in the world just sat around and waited for good things to happen to them? Think about people who you greatly admire for their success in their lives. Whether this is an achievement of recognition, life change, invention, or anything else they share something. They all had a vision and a plan for their success.Imagine how different life would be if these great world changers just decided that it was “too hard” or “not worth the effort”. Why do we expect those people to do great things, but we tell ourselves that such things are impossible? Is it not just as important for us to raise the bar and strive for goals and desires that will truly change our lives AND the lives of people around us?I can go on and on with how important your attitude and vision is towards the results that you will see in your career, relationships, and even your fitness results. Think you are a fit person? Then you will inherently do fit-people things. Do you think you won’t see results from your workout and nutrition routine? Think it’s too hard? Guess what. IT WILL BE! You will most likely find reasons to give up and won’t see the results if you tell yourself that you can’t be that person.My life has been completely changed by my new-found ability to dream so huge that my plans can’t even contain my dreams and that has spilled over into every area of my life. Nothing revolutionary about it. It’s about the attitude.
I want to challenge you, if you are reading this, to begin with changing your attitude. See yourself as the kind of person who has success. I promise you, if you set your goals high, and don’t stop pursuing them you will see changes in your life that you never expected or could ever conceive.
