Something if I have learnt in my years as an entrepreneur, is that nothing has more influence on my results than my attitude. When I get up in the morning, if my attitude isn't right, if I wake up in a negative mindset, that sets the tone for the entire day. I am sure you can relate to that, and I am sure that you are not controlling your attitude the way that you should.
First, I want you to read this quote by Charles Swindoll, which I find sums it up really well:
The longer I live, the more I realise the impact of attitude on life. Attitude, to me, is more important than facts. It is more important than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances, than failures, than successes, than what other people think or say or do. It is more important than appearance, giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company… a church… a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude… I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me, and 90% how I react to it. And so it is with you… we are in charge of our attitudes.
Pretty deep, isn't it?
It's true, it's your attitude that makes all the difference in the World. And the most successful entrepreneurs in the World are those who manage to control their attitude and change it, especially when negative things happen around us. We can figure out a way around a problem when we face it with the right attitude. Whining, complaining, making up excuses, blaming other people for our mistakes and failures, are the typical reactions of people with the wrong attitude. And that my friend, is what's keeping you where you are. That's what's holding you back from being the best version of yourself that you can be.
So here's what you can do to take control of your attitude. First of all, you need to realise that YOU are the only one responsible for your feelings. What other people do to you is irrelevant, when you love yourself enough. So, take control.
It's simple. If you don't like something, change it! You don't like the way you look, have a make over. If you don't like where you live, move somewhere else. Seriously, you can change anything you wish to change, you just have to make the decision.
I didn't like the fact that I was absorbing so much information from the internet about being an entrepreneur and not making any progress. So one day I said to myself “it's time to implement everything I have learnt in 4 years and put it to good use”. And I did it, I implemented, I decided it was enough slacking and enough procrastination. And results started pouring, I started to attract the right people to me, I started to attract wealth. And that's why today I am on the road to success, because I changed my behavior, I changed my attitude.
So do this. Whenever you face a challenge, whenever you see yourself in the wrong path, change your attitude. Whenever other people are trying to harm you, don't let it have any effect on you and it won't.
