Staying Positive (Part II)

· Performance,Gratitude,Mindset,Leadership,Motivation

When we are young and just entering the workforce, we often have ideals and enthusiasm for how great things are going to be. After a while in our first, second, or perhaps fifth job, we begin to realize that things may not be just so because others don’t share our perspective. Quickly we can learn, time and time again, that we can contribute to our own environment.

We can each do this by looking for the good in our accomplishments and those of our colleagues around us. What good things are happening each day? What do we admire in others? What gifts do they bring to the table and how do they help achieve the shared desired results?

Do we stop and notice? Do we then acknowledge? It’s only through this awareness and expression of gratitude that we can truly see what is positive around us.

And if we are in any type of leadership position, the impact we can have is even greater. What we share in a positive way is so contagious. Try it for one week and see what you notice happening around you.

Let us know what you experience.

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make." - Jane Goodall
