“It is our attitude at the beginning of a difficult task which, more than anything else, will affect its successful outcome.” William James
A positive mental attitude is focused on solutions. It’s about asking solution-oriented questions:
“how do I do this?”
“who do I talk to?”
“where will I find this information?”
“what if I tried it this way?”
Excuses, complaints, cynicism, have no place in the mind of someone who wants to succeed.
When making plans, many will think only of the worst that can happen – thinking that if they determine they can handle the worst, then they can decide to move forward with the plans. I used to do this as a way to overcome anxiety and fear. And, it does work. Now, though, I include looking at the best that can happen, too.
- What if I fail?
- What if I succeed?
The day I started asking, and answering, both questions is the day I felt confident in my ability to succeed.
