“Attitudes are contagious, is yours worth catching?” Shared by Jesse LeMay
One of the most significant discussions for leaders involves attitude. We know the contrast between good and bad attitudes followed by right and wrong attitudes.
The attitude of a leader makes the difference for followers. Today’s thought is one that emphasizes this truth. Consider the contagious nature of attitudes.
We know the destructive influence of an attitude that is negative, self-centered, sadistic, apathetic, and indifferent.
At the same time, we also know the powerful influence of an attitude that is positive, self-less, compassionate, and thoughtful.
Both of these ideas are contagious, but consider the question: Is our attitude worth catching?
Perhaps the most important question to consider is what can we do to improve our attitude?
We need to be careful what we allow into our mind. Think – garbage in, garbage out (GIGO).
Develop positive affirmations and write them down.
Avoid emotional “vampires” who tend to suck the joy out of any good situation.
Set and achieve daily goals.
Act like a “maniac.” MaryAnn Troiani says “happy people are manics on a mission.”
