Attitude The Power of One

You do not have to see all the steps just take the first one

An area of importance to us all, should we decide to be better

Getting the best from yourself and others all starts with one: one thought … one word … one action.
“One” is the first note in orchestrating the personal attitude that shapes and directs your life – and impacts the members of your team. Contrary to the lyrics from a classic rock song, one is not the loneliest number. It’s the most important one!
Your thoughts, words, and actions are like individual notes that work in concert to create the power of one person – YOU – to make a difference. You can harness your “power of one” if you simply:

  • Catch one negative thought and turn it into a positive one;
  • Think of one thing for which you are grateful at the beginning of each day;
  • Say one “Fantastic!” when a friend or team member asks how you are doing;
  • Assume the best in one upcoming situation;
  • Keep on moving one more time when you experience adversity;
  • Help one friend or colleague in a time of need – and take pride in it.

Many people used to feel that one vote in an election couldn’t really make a difference. Well, recent political elections that have been decided by razor thin margins have proven them wrong. A single
act can make a difference … it can create a ripple effect felt many miles and people away. So, ask yourself: What’s one thing I can do today that will make a positive difference in my attitude? Then DO IT!
Repeat that process every day and your life will improve – and so will the lives of the people you lead. Attitudes are truly powerful … and they’re contagious!

10 Things To Do and be Effective

An advantage we all have is the ability to control what we do each day. We can improve our productivity, or not! you decide. In too many cases, we are the only ones who know when we are falling short of our best level of performance. It’s no surprise that many managers have no idea regarding the difference between mediocrity and excellence.

Key to successEffective people have the Key to the secret of success, which is to “Take Action” Like many of the top performers! You must keep your driving the pace until you take flight.

Here are 10 things that effective people do …

  • imageStarting early. Sam Walton arrived to work at 3 am. Perhaps a little early for many of us, but we need to get an early start. “The early Bird”

  • Accepting good and bad news as part of moving on! As you progress up the ladder, you will be in the line of fire, so remember who you pass on the way up! Because what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.

  • Having a long term perspective. Never thinking about short term gains, thus focussing on building a strong successful foundation success.

  • Avoiding the petty and uninteresting information. It is counterproductive to spread rumours, be disrespectful or talk bad about colleagues and never criticizing management. It’s much better to focus on the task ahead and the results it will bring.

  • Always be professional. Do not lose control. You want others to describe you as a “professional person.” This is the compliment we all strive for thus reaching an important milestone.

  • Focusing on the key areas that bring the results you are aiming for! At the next meeting, observe and study the leaders of your organization and how they focus on what the important issues are. They have the ability to identify the problems as the professionals they are.

  • Treating others with respect, we are not better, but we have a different look on matters and may have accomplished more in certain areas, we must always appreciate what others bring to the table.

  • Be humble, we do not know everything. We must be open to working in teams. When we put our minds together, we can tackle enormous projects, which lead to huge benefits for the organization.

  • Confront problems! Address immediately. Those who are excellent performers are aware of small problems and prevent them from escalating. Taking a proactive approach is preferred.

  • Be committed to sharing the wealth and knowledge. Rewarding those who do well, as we are not solely responsible for the huge accomplishments. Be humble, and praise others publicly and privately when they contribute to our goals and initiatives.

Successful people are extraordinary in the sense that they understand the importance of knowledge, commitment, and humility. The process to greatness is well established but realizing it requires significant effort.
