You have to be in the right mental attitude to succeed.

At first, this may seem simple, but rest assured it is more difficult than you think.

The first step to having a positive mental attitude is to become aware of your attitude.  Start by simply observing how you view the world around you.  Listen to your own speech.  Is it more along the line of the glass is half full or is the glass half empty or is the glass completely empty because it held a delicious tasting beverage?

Listen to the speech of those around you too.  Just become observant of those you interact with.

How do you react to obstacles?  Is it woe is me, or do grab the sledge hammer and break down the obstacle?

TOTAL Tip: Observe yourself today when something doesn’t go your way.  It could be something as simple as someone cutting you off while driving.  Be observant of how your react and respond to the situation.

Making sure you have the right mental attitude for success is an ongoing process.  This is why a number of our blog entries focus primarily on this topic.

“Nothing can stop the person with the right mental attitude from achieving the goal and nothing on earth can help the person with the wrong mental attitude.” – Thomas Jefferson
