Harvard and Stanford Universities have reported that 85% the

reason a person gets a job and gets ahead in that job is due to attitude; and only

15% is because of technical or specific skills. Interesting, isn't it? You

spent how much money on your education? And you spent how much

money on building your positive attitude? Ouch. That hurts. Now here's an

interesting thought. With the "right" attitude, you can and will develop

the necessary skills. So where's your emphasis? Skill building? Attitude

building? Unfortunately, "Neither" is the real answer for many people.

Perhaps if more people knew how simple it is to develop and

maintain a positive attitude they would invest more time doing so. So here we go.

Five steps to staying positive in a negative world:

1. Understand that failure is an event, it is not a person. Yesterday

ended last night; today is a brand new day, and it's yours. You were born to

win, but to be a winner you must plan to win, prepare to win, and then you

can expect to win.

2. Become a lifetime student. Learn just one new word every day and in

five years you will be able to talk with just about anybody about anything.

When your vocabulary improves, your I.Q. goes up 100% of the time,

according to Georgetown Medical School.

3. Read something informational or inspirational every day. Reading

for 20 minutes at just 240 words per minute will enable you to read 20

200-page books each year. That's 18 more than the average person reads!

What an enormous competitive advantage . . . if you'll just read for 20

minutes a day.

4. The University of Southern California reveals that you can acquire

the equivalent of two years of a college education in three years

just by listening to motivational and educational cassettes on the way to your

job and again on the way home. What could be easier?

5. Start the day and end the day with positive input into your mind. Inspirational messages cause the brain to flood with dopamine and nor epinephrine, the energizing neurotransmitters; with endorphins, the endurance neurotransmitters; and with serotonin, the feel-good-about-yourself neurotransmitter. Begin and end the day by reading or doing something positive! Remember: Success is a process, not an event. Invest the time in your attitude and it will pay off in your skills as well as your career.
