Today's life tip is number 7 in my 10 part series on how to improve your career, courtesy of the Brian Tracy program I'm listening to. Number 7 is, develop a positive attitude. A positive attitude is simply the ability to remain positive and optimistic in the face of ups and downs. Now your attitude and your personality are largely determined by how you explain things to yourself. Stuff happens to all of us right? But it depends on how you explain it inside your own head. So if something happens and you explain it as, "I always have bad luck, that's the worst thing that's ever happened to me!" You're going to have a negative outlook. But if you explain it as, "Well, you know, this is a learning experience, maybe there was a reason for that, maybe I will be able to use this experience in the future, maybe there's a reason for this" whatever. But if you explain it to yourself in a positive way, you can put a positive spin on it, you can remain in a positive state. And employers, partners, customers, everybody wants to be around positive people. So developing and keeping a positive attitude is number 7 on how to improve your life and your career.
