I believe that behind a person’s success – in life and in business –  exists a positive attitude that has provided the focus required to help that person achieve his or her goals.  Attitude is the key to one’s success.

Here are some of my personal “attitude check-in” mantras that I would like to share that have assisted me in keeping a positive attitude and believing that I can accomplish anything I put my mind to.  I find them to be very powerful and motivating – especially when I need a little boost:

  1. Wake up with an attitude of gratitude.
  2. If you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all.
  3. Don’t live with regret; look for the positive lesson to learn in each and every situation, no matter how difficult or disappointing.
  4. Learn something new everyday.
  5. Because you are here, you are important.
  6. Don’t envy your competitors; learn something from their success.
  7. When all else fails – smile.
  8. Have a good handshake.
  9. Never be afraid to ask for help.
  10. At the end of the day, take stock of all of your blessings.

Now, go get-em!
