We are constantly being told that what we think about matters. Does having a positive attitude and positive thoughts really matter when it comes to business? What do you think?
If you have been reading my blog for any time at all you know I am a great supporter of having the right mindset. I recently wrote a post Is Mindset or Skillset More Important? Most people who left comments were in agreement that mindset is more important.
Positive Thoughts : Positive Attitude : What Has It Got To Do With Business?
I am revisiting this topic again because I want to share some wisdom from some successful people.
Wisdom from a guy called Vick, who is Empower Network’s number one earner. He is currently doing a 6 part webinar series on Traffic. The first one was all about mindset. Why is that? I say success leaves clues. Every time I have heard Vick speak he talks 90% of the time about mindset.
I am not suggesting you sit around meditating and reading all day and take no action. Clearly that will not work. But working away grinding and never working on your mindset does not work either. We must work on having positive thoughts and a positive attitude.
I will say it again “success leaves clues”.
When “Life” gets in the way
If we believe what we think about and how we feel is important then doesn’t it make sense we develop habits to support our thinking?
We all have stuff to deal with in life and we need to be equipped so that we are not thrown into a downward spiral of negativity when something does not work out as we would like.
It is not always easy to have positive thoughts and a positive attitude when something undesirable happens . Nor am I suggesting we do not feel our emotions I am merely suggesting we need to have tools to assist us be resilient.
The world around us
If we allow it we can be bombarded with negative stories by the media and others so we need to guard our mind against the influence. The media runs on hype and it is important to not get caught up in it. We now even get the trending stories on our Facebook feed!
Maybe we have negative people in our lives. How do we keep a positive attitude and have positive thoughts around these people? Here are a couple of ways..
The importance of reading
I have been blessed to have worked with some amazingly successful people. When I was working with the company that promoted Robert Kiyosaki and other greats here in Australia I got to see their habits first hand. They were all avid readers of personal development and business. They constantly read and grew as people.
If you are a blogger or creating any kind of content then reading is essential. It opens your mind, gives you ideas for content and most importantly helps your mindset.
Apart from the “speakers” I know I have heard many top earners online and in various network marketing companies say they read daily. Even if you can only do 30 minutes a day that will make a difference.
I know people who buy audio books and listen to them when they walk or workout. Multitasking is good 🙂
Do you read daily?
I also suggest you listen to an audio or watch a video daily. It does not have to be long and the internet is full of them. YouTube has short messages from Tony Robbins, Jim Rohn and many inspirational people. There is wisdom all around us and it is so easy to tap into. We just need to take advantage and have good habits.
In summary – Positive Thoughts : Positive Attitude : What Has It Got To Do With Business? – it is fundamental to our success. What do you think?
Please share with us any tips you have and I would love to hear what you are reading now?
Make it a great day.
