Do you know a truly negative leader? So negative that if you should suggest they take a course on fostering a positive attitude, they’d shoot it down in seconds? “Why the hell would you think a course on positive attitude could do anything for me?” They can’t even see the positive potential of trying to be more positive!
Lots of leaders are like that. We lose perspective. We begin to see the world as less than it should be. We forget, all too often, that attitude is a decision. Our feelings, emotions, and mindsets are choices we make every day. Are you choosing wisely?
Our attitudes influence everything about how we perform and why others follow us. If attitude is a decision, we need to make the right decision as often as we can.
