The Magic of Thinking Big
Your attitude matters more than you think. The energy that you put out creates a reaction from the people around you. If you are positive, appreciative, and strive to serve, you get the same in return. To keep the right attitude, keep the following in mind:
No matter what the day brings, put on a smile and try to find the good in the current situation. Once you get your body into a positive state, by smiling, your mind follows. Then you can turn a gloomy situation upside down. Every fool can prosper when things are going well, but it’s the brilliant people that find the good in the worst situation.
When others do a favor for you, notice it. It doesn’t take much effort for you to address them by name and acknowledge the importance their work, but it could change their whole day. Then they are more likely to remember you and treat you well in the future.
The world doesn’t have handouts very often. You will only get where you want to go by showing initiative. If you want that promotion at work, demonstrate that you have what it takes to do the job. If you want to keep a customer around, treat them better than anyone else will. This may cost you in the short run, but it will pay off in dividend over time.
